Andorra: Travel Health Information

Andorra may be a small country, but it’s a popular destination for travellers. Situated between France and Spain, Andorra offers visitors hundreds of kilometres of snowy ski slopes, numerous spas, and Romanesque churches.

Healthcare

The standards for patient care and medical services in Andorra may differ from your home country. Andorra has a publicly funded healthcare system as well as a private sector. Healthcare meets international standards and many doctors and nurses speak English. However, because Andorra is a very small country, access to some healthcare services, especially in emergency situations, may be limited.

In the event of a medical emergency, contact your travel health insurance company immediately. Hospitals in Andorra typically require upfront payment, regardless if you have travel health insurance. Ensure that you have accessible funds to cover upfront fees and adequate travel health insurance. Before you depart, check with your insurer about the extent of their coverage in Andorra.

Pharmacies and online pharmacies are widely available. Prescriptions for medications must be obtained from a local doctor.

If you are travelling with medication, check with Andorra’s embassy, consulate, or Ministry of Health for details on medication allowances and restrictions. Note that these sources may provide incomplete or out-of-date information.

Road safety

Roads in bigger towns and tourist-heavy areas are generally well maintained, but road quality may vary by region. Weather, including frequent and heavy snow, may also pose a risk to travellers. Seat belts must be worn by all passengers in vehicles at all times. Helmets are mandatory for motorcycle drivers and passengers.
