Category A Residence Permit

Passive residency by investment in Andorra

How can you get the residency by investment in Andorra?

One of the easiest ways to get your residence permit in Andorra. The Category A residency will allow you to stay in the country without the need to work (it’s a non-lucrative visa), or to legally reside once you make your living from abroad.

Initial Investment

In order to get your residence permit category A, you will need to invest in a government bond with value equal to 50.000€

Your Main Source of Income can’t be in the Principality

This visa won’t allow you to work in the country, but you can keep your existing job contract or company outside.

Bring your family with you

You can do a joint application and get the residency for your family too. You will just need to ad an extra 10.000€ on the initial investment per each family member

Life most of the time away from Andorra

You will need to stay in the country for a minimum of 90 days per year. Therefore, you can live abroad and visit the country just for three months.

No need to pay personal tax

If you stay in the country from 90 to 182 days, you will be regarded as a non-resident taxpayer in Andorra, avoiding the need to pay personal tax.

Fast application procedure

It will take from 1 to 2 months to finally get your residence permit in the country from the moment in which you started the application process
