Please see here for the latest (19th July) travel restrictions for if your destination is Andorra.
Masks are no longer obligatory outdoors in Spain, France and Andorra, but inside masks will continue. Those persons in Andorra requiring a PCR or TMA test for travel will now no longer enjoy free tests unless they have been vaccinated.
For local vaccinations, the appointment message you receive will refer to a questionnaire which you can complete with them there or do in advance and you can print it from here and if you receive the SMS message calling you for the appointment at Pl. braus d'Andorra, the location is here and there is free parking.
The Government pre-inscription register for the vaccine is still open and you must register if you opt for the vaccination so please follow the link.
Access to and from Andorra
The only access of course is to arrive via France and Spain. Please note that Andorra does not require any further testing for entry other than what the access country requires ( France or Spain).
For entry via France or Spain you must firstly check the exit requirements from your country of departure. You will need to check your departure country's regulations directly and each country is different, I cannot help for links on that.
For entry to France the requirements are again dependent on your country of departure. There is a good interactive update map below which you can then click on France or Spain ( or any country on the globe) and see exactly what the entry requirements are and this is always up to date. Once you have clicked on France you will see a scroll box to the right and you identify your criteria. I am not posting an example here as as aways the situation is fluid and the intractive map is the source data. In general now 2 vaccinations at least 14 days prior to departure are being accepted in lieu of PCR tests but check first.
Leaving Andorra - Travel requirements
No tests are required for entering France or Spain from Andorra. Depending on your country of destination you may require a PCR test in Andorra since the results are next day only. That can be arranged in Andorra and emailed to you after entry to Spain or France if you are travelling from those countries. Certain countries such as the UK require you to have pre-booked tests before arrival and a period of quarantine. Andorra is on the amber list for UK returnees.
So check the entry requirements by using the interactive map above for your destination. Check your airline or ferry requirements, and whether there are any latest transit restrictions across France or Spain (currently lifted).
That is about it, have a safe trip!!
