We present a summary of the process we carry out to help you acquire passive residence status in Andorra:
Personalized consultation: At VIP Serveis, we first begin by conducting a private consultation with each client to address all relevant issues with regards to their immigration application to Andorra and their relocation. We take this opportunity to cover any other questions and topics, including education and healthcare system, bank account opening, taxation and any other administrative matters.
Document legalization: We will help you prepare and legalize all the required documentation for the passive residence application in Andorra. In addition, local translators will translate all your documents into one of the officially accepted languages by the Andorran authorities (Catalan, Spanish, or French).
Bank account opening and property rental or purchase: We will be glad to welcome you in Andorra and assist you in the matters of bank account opening and in acquiring or renting a property.
Medical insurance contracting: We will assist you and your family in subscribing to medical insurance in Andorra.
Submission of the residence permit application and medical examination: Once your file is complete and your documents are legalized and translated, we will reserve an appointment for you to submit your residence permit application. We will accompany you during the appointment at the Immigration Department of Andorra. Following the appointment, you and your family members may have to undergo a medical examination.
Deposit at AFA: After your file is reviewed and approved by the Immigration Department of Andorra, you will have to proceed with a deposit transfer to AFA. The deposit will be held at AFA during the entire stay of your residency and may be refunded only after you become a citizen of Andorra or if you decide to renounce your residence permit.
Obtaining the first Andorran residence card: When your residence permit is ready to be collected, the Andorran Immigration Department will contact you. You will be asked to cover the government fees for issuing the permit, which will be valid for two years. In the event that you are unable to collect your residence permit in person, we will be able to collect it for you through proxy. It is important to note that from this moment you will have a period of six months to proceed with the remaining investments within the Andorran assets. Finally, once the residence permit is issued, you will have 30 days to provide a certificate of residence registration from the Comú of your residence city to the Immigration Department of Andorra.
