New Changes to Category D, Active Residency



The Parliament voted on 13/06/2018 for the following major amendments. There are other smaller amendments, but they are only procedural: -

  • There is now a bond requirement similar to the existing bond for passive residents but only for 15,000 euros for each shareholder of the company. The difference is that the bond needs to be paid at the time of the application and not as in passive applications as the final step after the medical interview. The new bond does not extend to dependant spouses who are not shareholders and who are still obliged to wait for 12 months before they can join the principal applicant. Note that children can be included with the principal applicant but there is another set procedure for this.
  • The minimum requirement for the days spent in Andorra for this category is now 183 days (before it was not specified with a "degree of permanence" that was never clearly defined). This means that residents under this category will be fiscal as opposed to passive who "can be".
  • The amount of share capital in a company has been increased from more than 10% (as before) to more than 20%.
       
 Any further administrative tweaks or interpretations by Immigration will be communicated as always.
 
The page for Cat D Active Residency has been updated to reflect the above.

Welcome to Andorra. The only truly up to date website for everything you need to know about applying for residency.

 
All the very best for 2018, my name is Jane Whittaker and I am sole proprietor of an Andorran registered business called J W Serveis that specialises in relocation and residency.  I am an Andorrana but was born in England. I have been involved in Government administration for over 30 years and this website is now more than 9 years old. Over 29 years ago I fell in love with my ski instructor on a week's holiday, have lived here ever since and have two wonderful sons, a fairy tale movie perhaps!

Some years ago I realised that there was little or no up to date information on Andorra residency  out  there on the internet other than international or internet based organisations so I put together this website to inform you personally about  Andorra  and all the advantages that becoming a resident confers. The response has been one of gratitude really, from Australia to UK, India and all parts of the globe and the main thread of this feedback is “I didn't know Andorra had all this to offer" and "I had heard of Andorra but didn't really know where it was".
 
 
Over the years I have built up a wealth of experience and knowledge on relocation to Andorra. Every year the rules, regulations, categories of residency become ever more complex and this website keeps you informed as these changes happen. Most of the other websites on this subject are simply out of date and can be misleading and I personally guarantee that website is updated on an almost daily basis.
 
 
My website has that proven personal touch, not an international chain or a Caribbean based expat forum, I live here and have built up over the past 30 years extensive contacts both in Government, banks, local estate agents to name but a few. I have successfully relocated many individuals and families from all parts of the globe and am fully experienced in the documentation and have an in-depth knowledge of the Government requirements. I am proud of my ability to be able to help you and I can make your relocation to Andorra painless. I can assure you now that enjoying the benefits of Andorra is just a click away without any obligation and if you decide to proceed I am here personally to help you through the process!

A personal "one-stop" relocation for you and your family.


Without any obligation I can advise you right now on any subject relevant to Andorra, and if I don't have the answers I will find out for you the same day. Whether it's about moving to Andorra, a holiday home in the ski resorts perhaps, advice on tax issues, importing cars, starting a business and any other personal questions you may have, you can telephone me directly on 00 376 836255, or e-mail me on residency@livinginandorra.com  no filling in boxes to an anonymous website, just ask me, I don't bite!!

Choosing the right person or company to help and to advise in monumental and life changing decisions is the most important factor in relocating to and living in a foreign country, and with this in mind I look forward to hearing from you on any question you may have without obligation….

Polite warning on local blogs and other similar websites
There has been a recent proliferation of blogs , forums and websites discussing many aspects of living in Andorra. Whilst I am all in favour of local blogs and forums for fun and  local information  I advise caution for those looking towards residency or seeking professional advice or opinions on procedures and Government processes. I choose also not to host any blogs or forums here and I have been appauled by some very quasi professional advice offered out there, so please be warned.
What I can offer to potential applicants


  • Free and without obligation initial advice on all aspects of becoming a resident in Andorra


  • Advising on the most suitable hotels, areas to visit and where to avoid  when you visit, and most importantly I will meet you upon your arrival and spend time ensuring that you are familiar with the best aspects that Andorra has to offer,


  • Preparing all documents for compliance as required under current Andorran banking policy and on your visit, personally introducing you to a bank manager here and arranging a meeting for you with private investment banking should you wish to discuss investment through Andorran banks

  • Arranging advice from professional tax advisers in Andorra


  • Arranging meetings with a lawyer to discuss and proceed with company formation and accounting support


  • Co-ordinating your application including the completion and acceptance by Immigration of the full set of documentation,


  • Arranging viewings to suit your requirements for the rental or purchase of property through reliable partnered estate agents,


  • Arranging the basic insurance cover to satisfy Immigration requirements should this be required,


  • Co-ordinating and arranging schooling for your children,


  • Co-ordinating and arranging the removal to Andorra of your furniture and personal effects from anywhere in the world,


  • Assistance in importing cars that you may wish to bring with you or purchase in another country to take advantage of  the available concession for no import tax on cars for newly arrived residents,


  • Personal assistance in connecting and installing electricity, telephone, Internet access (high speed fibre optics for those with internet businesses), satellite dish, local driving license, and that all important ski pass


  • And any other advice on, taxes, local living expenses, access, importing and exporting, local schooling, local wills, local driving licenses, and just about anything relative to your relocation


  • Or if you are just interested in property for investment or a ski holiday home near the pistes, let me act for you and weed out the suitable properties for you to view with a local agent.


  • "Post Application" services not only to see you through the period of settling in, but also to look after all your residential administration, registration, mail, property maintenance requirements and of course the  renewals on the due dates.
