Anyone considering moving to a new country should consider the cost of living on the other side.
While you’ll quickly discover the tax system in Andorra is favourable, you know that Monaco also has low tax rates, but few can actually afford or justify living there after they pay the high cost of living.

Andorra’s passive residency program offers visas to individuals that wish to become a resident of the country, while performing most of their economic activities outside of it. Residency in Andorra allows individuals to legally minimise their tax while maintaining an enviably high standard of living.
Initially, passive residence permits are given for 2 years. This is then renewed for another 2 years, then 3 years, then 10 years. After 20 years, you can apply for citizenship.
Applicants must complete a criminal background check, while also providing proof of income and private health insurance. Income must be at least 300% the average Andorran annual minimum salary of €12,999.96, so you will need to show €38,999.88 in income each year. If applicants are bringing family, this same rule must be applied to each family member except at a rate of 100%.
This means a 4 person family with 3 dependents would need to show an income of €77,999.76.
Andorra is a popular business environment for entrepreneurs who want to start their own company. We’ll go into more detail below, but the in-a-nutshell reason for incorporating in Andorra is that you get many of the benefits of Europe without the high taxes.
It’s also a favourable place to register an off-shore company if you’re not a resident of Andorra.
Because there are no stock exchanges in Andorra, the government-run registries take a relatively active role in tracking how company ownership is traded.
Andorra’s small size means that rules for company formation in Andorra might be different from what you expect. For both of these reasons, it’s important to have a plan before you set out to incorporate an Andorran company.
The Andorran government also requires companies to register detailed articles of association that spell out how a company will conduct business. It can be somewhat time-consuming to change these, so buying an existing “shelf company” is usually not a viable workaround for the company formation exercise.
This article will walk you through the most important parts of the process.
Due to the high amount of foreigners applying for permits to live in Andorra in recent years, Andorra’s residency rules have been tightened by the government.
These are rules you must follow to acquire and maintain your residency. They are in place to ensure that Andorra only attracts the most productive and serious candidates.
During your application and stay, Andorra’s residency rules entail proof of income, insurance, background checks, and more. The type of residency you apply for and obtain also changes the requirements you must meet, too.

Whether your company is looking to sell in Andorra, or is incorporated in Andorra and needs to sell to the world, one of the most lucrative marketing channels for you to consider is search engine optimisation.
Commonly known as “SEO”, it is the process of getting people to your website from the “free” or “organic” search results on search engines.
When done well, SEO turns your website from an ongoing expense into an asset. That asset might produce sales enquiries, ecommerce sales, or something else.
Skiing comes naturally to Andorrans. Just as Australians learn to swim, Brazilians play soccer and Canadians skate as a rite of passage.
Having a mountain view outside of almost every window means a ski hill outside every door. And with mountains in the backyard, learning to ski, often at a ski school, is part of growing up in Andorra.
The idea of ski education goes well beyond the lessons you might have your kids take at the resort while on vacation. Schools in Andorra include skiing as integral and much-loved part of the curriculum.
