ANDORRA RESIDENCE WITHOUT LUCRATIVE ACTIVITIES
Launched in 2012, the Andorra residence without lucrative activity was created to cater to global investors looking to relocate in Andorra and benefit from its low tax environment. The program has been very popular with Spanish and French nationals. This residence by investment program requires an investment in assets of 400,000 Euro to be held for your length of stay in Andorra or until you change your immigration status. After 7 years of residence, applicants can obtain a 10-year long term residence permit. Naturalization is not a straightforward process and can take 20 years to qualify. Andorra is not part of the European Union but use the Euro. Nevertheless, an Andorra resident from a third country receives a EU Visa to be able to travel in and out of the EU.
