About Andorra Citizenship and Residency

Andorra only offers residency programs at the moment. Citizenship cannot be bought; you would need to complete 20 years of residency or you can fast-track your citizenship application and reduce this time to 10 years of residency if you complete mandatory education within Andorra.

There are two main residency categories in Andorra:

Passive Residency

  • Residency with no activity:
    – Reside a minimum of 90 days a year to keep your residency.
    – Invest €400,000 in either real estate, hold share capital or equity in an Andorran company, or an alternative financial investment method within the principality of Andorra (such as: securities with INAF, debt instruments by Andorran resident entities or any public administration).
    – Prove that you can support yourself.
    – Deposit €50,000 for yourself. If you have any dependents, then you must deposit an additional €10,000 for each of them.
  • Residency through business activity:
    – Deposit €50,000 for yourself. If you have any dependents, then you must deposit an additional €10,000 for each of them.
    – Prove that you can support yourself.
    – Maintain at least 1 employee in Andorra.
    – Generate at least 85% of the revenue outside the country.
  • Residency via sport, culture, or scientific reasons:
