The Andorra banking sector is one of the principality’s most important industries. That means, in part, that it’s highly regulated and, as a new resident in Andorra, it will be relatively easy to find a bank.
Banking in Andorra is controlled by five banking groups:
- Banc Sabadell d’Andorra,
- Crèdit Andorrà,
- Mora Banc, and,
- Vall Banc (formerly Banca Privada d’Andorra).
Banks in Andorra focus on serving local clientele with retail bank accounts and private banking services for residents and commercial banking for local businesses.
If you want to apply for residency in Andorra, it’s a requirement to have a local bank account. That means that it’s best to have a bank account open with an Andorran bank before starting the process.
It will also come in handy when paying for all the costs of moving to Andorra and setting up your life here.
