For assistance in Andorra, please contact the U.S. Consulate General in Barcelona, Spain. The U.S. Consulate General provides a full range of services for U.S. citizens, including, but not limited to, emergency and routine passport services, notarial services, and Consular Reports of Births Abroad. The Consulate General also assists U.S. citizens in emergencies, including deaths, arrests, and crisis situations. U.S. citizens must make an online appointment for routine consular services.
U.S. citizens are currently subject to COVID-19 entry restrictions when coming to the European Union. 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 land border with either Spain or France. U.S. citizens will need to comply with restrictions in those countries prior to entering Andorra. No additional restrictions are in place in Andorra. Please visit the U.S. Embassy in Madrid’s COVID-19 page or the U.S. Embassy in Paris’ COVID-19 page for more information on the specific entry/exit requirements in those countries.
Visit Andorra’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs website for the most current travel requirements information.
The U.S. Department of State is unaware of any HIV/AIDS entry restrictions for visitors to or foreign residents of Andorra.

Frequently, their aim is unprotected or vulnerable targets, such as:

Crime: Andorra has a low crime rate. However, since all visitors to Andorra transit through southern France or northeast Spain, it is important to be aware of the type of crime that tourists typically experience in the region. Please refer to country information for Spain and France for additional details.
Victims of Crime: Report crimes to the local police at 110 and contact the U.S. Consulate General in Barcelona at + (34) 932-802-227 for assistance. U.S. citizen victims of sexual assault are encouraged to contact the U.S. Consulate General. Remember that local authorities are responsible for investigating and prosecuting crime.
See our webpage on help for U.S. victims of crime overseas.
Domestic Violence: U.S. citizen victims of domestic violence are encouraged to contact the U.S. Consulate General for assistance.

Tourism: The tourism industry is generally regulated and rules [with regards to best practices and safety inspections] are regularly enforced. Hazardous areas/activities are identified with appropriate signage and professional staff is typically on hand in support of organized activities. In the event of an injury, appropriate medical treatment is widely available throughout the country. Outside of a major metropolitan center, it may take more time for first responders and medical professionals to stabilize a patient and provide life-saving assistance. U.S. citizens are encouraged to purchase medical evacuation insurance. See our webpage for more information on insurance providers for overseas coverage.
Criminal Penalties: You are subject to local laws. If you violate local laws, even unknowingly, you may be expelled, arrested, or imprisoned. Individuals establishing a business or practicing a profession that requires additional permits or licensing should seek information from the competent local authorities, prior to practicing or operating a business.
Arrest Notification: If you are arrested or detained, ask police or prison officials to notify the U.S. Consulate General immediately. See our webpage for further information.
Counterfeit and Pirated Goods: Although counterfeit and pirated goods are prevalent in many countries, they may still be illegal according to local laws. You may also pay fines or have to give them up if you bring them back to the United States. See the U.S. Department of Justice website for more information.

Good medical care is available in Andorra. Regulations regarding medications may vary from those in the United States, however. Andorra relies on the Spanish and French postal systems. As Spanish and French regulations do not permit the international shipment of medication, please do not ship medication from the United States to Andorra as the package will transit through Spain or France and likely be intercepted. U.S. citizens who plan a lengthy trip to Andorra should bring their own medication or obtain a prescription for that medication from a local physician.
The U.S. Consulate General maintains a list of doctors and hospitals. We do not endorse or recommend any specific medical provider or clinic.
For emergency services in Andorra dial 112.
Ambulance services are widely available.
The U.S. government does not pay medical bills for private U.S. citizens. Be aware that U.S. Medicare/Medicaid does not apply overseas. Most hospitals and doctors overseas do not accept U.S. health insurance.
Medical Insurance: Make sure your health insurance plan provides coverage overseas. Most care providers overseas only accept cash payments. See our webpage for more information on insurance providers for overseas coverage. Visit the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for more information on type of insurance you should consider before you travel overseas.
We strongly recommend supplemental insurance to cover medical evacuation.
Always carry your prescription medication in original packaging, along with your doctor’s prescription. Check with the Andorra’s Health Department to ensure the medication is legal in Andorra.
