Andorra is not part of the Schengen area. Andorra is landlocked, and does not have an airport; therefore, all visitors to Andorra must enter via Andorra’s border with either Spain or France. Visit the Embassy of the Principality of Andorra website for the most current visa information.
We recommend passports be valid for at least six months beyond your stay.
You may enter Andorra through Spain or France without a visa for up to 90 days; however, visitors should follow the relevant visa regulations for France or Spain.
Upon re-entry to the Schengen zone, your passport should have at least 90 days validity.
If you require a Schengen visa to enter Europe, be sure your visa entitles you to multiple entries to safeguard against being refused re-entry to Spain or France following a stay in Andorra. For further details about travel into and within Schengen countries, please see our Schengen fact sheet.
If you wish to stay in Andorra longer than three months, or to apply for residency, you must provide a criminal records check to Andorran authorities. This may be obtained from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Criminal Justice Information Services office (CJIS), which you would then send to the Department of State to obtain the required apostille.

In an effort to prevent international child abduction, many governments have initiated additional procedures at entry/exit points. These often include requiring documentary evidence of relationship and permission for the child’s travel from the parent(s) or legal guardian not present. Having such documentation on hand, even if not required, may facilitate your entry/departure.
