An investor can get an Andorra residence permit by investing at least €400,000 in the country’s economy. Andorran residents don’t pay capital gains and dividends taxes and save on income and corporate taxes. Residence permit holders can visit France and Spain without visas and get visas to the Schengen Area, the USA, Canada and other countries under a fast-track procedure.

The Andorra residence permit by investment does not give the right to work and start a business as all income must come from abroad.

The jurisdiction of Andorra is suitable for registering the tax residency of an international business or opening a new company. The corporate tax rate is 10%.
