Make Andorra your home

All the very best for 2024, my name is Jane Whittaker and I specialise in Andorra relocation and residency applications.  I am an Andorrana but was born in England. Over 37 years ago I fell in love with my ski instructor on a week's holiday and have been living in Andorra ever since and have two wonderful sons, a fairy tale movie perhaps!

But enough of that, lets get down to how I can help you.  "How can I become an Andorra Resident?"

I have been involved in Government administration for over 35 years and this my very own website is now more than 15 years old, being the foremost independent site that prioritised the residency process. There are now many other sites offering information on all aspects of Andorra, this one concentrates solely on the residency process, the reason why you are reading this!

Into 2024, I am increasingly alarmed by other agencies and companies new and not so new, clearly giving advice and information which is wrong and unprofessional, with the ever increasing complexity of categories and requirements you have reached the right website and it comes with a guarantee that where you see or are given conflicting information elsewhere, this site and my information is correct !!

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".
With three fixed appointments minimum per week at Immigration, I have over the years  built up a wealth of experience and knowledge on relocation to Andorra.

Residency advice
If your objective is to apply for Andorran residency this can be your new Andorra residency card. Maybe you have not considered Andorra before? Then read on as this site is solely dedicated as a personal guide for you and your family to start a new life in Andorra.

My website has that proven personal touch not an international chain, blog, or a Caribbean based expat forum, I live here and have built up over the past 35 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 familiar with  the documentation required and have an in-depth knowledge of the Government procedures. I would love to help you to settle in this country and I can make your Andorra residency card as painless as can be. 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 application process.

Only endorsed by the best!!

Jane Whittaker said " Families come here for the schooling, where children learn Spanish, French and Catalan. It´s a lovely place to bring them up, no crime...The lack of information about living and buying property there led her to start a relocation and residency agency..
