Electricity

Electrical current is 230 volts, 50Hz. Round pin attachment plugs and Shuko plugs and receptacles with side grounding contacts are in use.

Language

The official language of Andorra is Catalan, which is used in administration and business. More than half the population speaks Spanish, and French and Portuguese are also spoken.

Travel Health

There are no health risks associated with travel to Andorra, but it is recommended that travellers are up to date with routine immunisations. Medical care in Andorra and neighbouring Spain and France is excellent, but can be expensive and medical insurance is advised.

Tipping

Tipping is not expected in Andorra, though a gratuity of between five and 15 percent for waiters and taxi drivers is very welcome.

Safety Information

There are no risks associated with travel to Andorra, but travellers should always be vigilant and not display valuables.

Local Customs

Andorrans tend to be friendly and courteous. Smoking is common, although restrictions have been placed in neighbouring Spain. It's forbidden to drink alcohol on the street and the country has a zero policy to the possession and use of illegal drugs.

Business

Catalan is the official language of Andorra, although Spanish is widely spoken. A small minority speak French, and English is minimal. It is best to ascertain before meetings which language will be used. Punctuality is important, handshakes are the norm on greeting, and business attire should be smart and formal.

Communications

The international access code for Andorra is +376. Visitors with unlocked phones can use local SIM cards; WiFi is widely available in most cafes, hotels and restaurants.

Duty Free

There are no regulations other than those of France or Spain, and visitors must follow the details of whichever country they transit to reach Andorra. Andorra itself is duty free.
