Welcome to my website! I am an Andorrana but was born in England. I have my own business and have been involved in Government administration for over 20 years. Over 26 years ago I fell in love with my ski instructor on a week's holiday, have lived here ever since and have two wonderful teenage 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. This website prides itself on keeping you informed as these changes happen. Many websites on this subject are simply out of date and can be misleading.
Please click here for my sister website, this is for applications to form a company in Andorra, obtain a trading license and apply for active residency. My Associate lawyer will advise you on all legal matters.
Please read about Andorra first on this website and decide what is best for you.
Potential changes in the bank certificates of 300%, 400% etc of the minimum wage required at application and at renewals have been confirmed. Originally the new wording was that these funds would have been required by certificate to prove that they have been in the bank since the start of residency, an alomost impossible task for banks and clients.
UPDATE! Things seem to be changing. immigration do NOT now expect these funds to be locked into the account as it constitutes income. The banks just need to show that funds as required are paid into the bank annually since the last renewal. Am not sure what this means nor how the banks can do this. Am working hard to resolve this but things seem not to be as initially suggested by Immigration, although to impose this retrospectively needs to be addressed.
I think there is more confusion than action. I suspect that there is a compromise between banks complaining that funds in some cases are withdrawn the same day after the certificate is issued, and Immigration fumbling for wording to prevent this.
Andorra has never been truly publicised, nor have the advantages of becoming a resident, a base in Europe with little or no personal income tax on residents ( Please later read the latest on personal tax"IRPF" which came into effect in January 2015) and an exemption to Schengen visa requirements ( I also have a page dedicated to Schengen vsas). Whether you are retired, have an internet business, are perhaps a consultant and travel, or you have your own business in another country then Andorra, and all its advantages, is probably the least known country on offer in the world, and I would like to invite you to read through my website.
This is a website with a proven personal touch, not an international chain or a Caribbean based expat forum, I live here and have built up over the past 22 years extensive contacts both in Government and with local estate agents. 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!
The law has recently changed, you will read conflicting information on other websites, my website is guaranteed to be updated onan almost daily basis. The facts and procedure for residency as you read them here are correct.
Everything you need to know about Andorra can be found here but if you do have specific questions, please first look through the FAQs. If nothing helps there I would be delighted to hear from you, Email me directly right now and I will get back to you as soon as I have the answer.

Allain and Belinda who run Sports Sensacio have kindly agreed again this year to offer clients discounted ski hire and a special honesty box. In this you or your family or visitors can hire the ski equipment for the whole period of a visit and when you hand back the equipment at the end of the period just tell them how many days you actually used them and be charged only for those days. The great advantages of this is that you do not have to hire, hand back re-hire in your days off or if the weather is bad. Just mention the website to Allain or Belinda and they will sort everything out for you. The shop in La Massana is near Andbank opposite the ESSO garage....Happy Skiing ( Please see logo Esports Sensacio).
