Tourist visas are not required to visit Andorra. However, since Andorra can only be accessed by passing through France or Spain, tourists from countries outside the European Union (formed by Spain, France, Portugal, Italy, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Austria, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Greece, the United Kingdom, Ireland and, since May 2004, Malta, Cyprus, Slovenia, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) who require an EU visa should obtain a multi-entry Schengen visa to ensure freedom of movement into and out of Andorra. The Schengen multi-entry visa can be obtained from French and Spanish Consulates.


Andorra, in the middle of the Pyrenees, do not have any International Airport inside, but the nearest ones are the Barcelona in Spain (at 180 Km of distance from Andorra), and Toulouse in France (at 190 Km of distance from Andorra). Specially from the Barcelona Airport we have the best connexion with a bus directly to Andorra by High Way every hour, and about 2 ½ hours of travel from Barcelona Airport to Andorra Bus Station.

For participants from nearest countries (France and Spain), who maybe can arrive by car, also for participants coming from any country, we recommend to travel to the Barcelona Airport, with an important number of low cost and standard aviation companies, and hundreds of flights every day from many destinations. From Barcelona Airport we recommend these bus companies (the tickets can be purchased directly to the bus driver, but the better option is to purchase previously by the Website of every company):

NOVATEL (Bus to Andorra without stop, 5 times a day, first bus to 10:30 last to 20:00):

DIRECTBUS (Bus to Andorra with 1 stop, 7 times a day, first bus to 07:30, last to 23:00):

For these 2 companies, we can arrange the bus tickets reservations for large European countries delegations, if necessary. Please contact with the Organizing Committee.
