Customs and Duty-free

Remember: the Principality of Andorra is not in the EEC!
Andorra has two borders: the one on the French border is situated at Pas de la Casa, and the one on the Spanish border is at La Farga de Moles. Both are open day and night. Required documents:

- Citizens of member countries of the EEC: National Identity Document.
- Other visitors: Passport or equivalent.

When returning to the EEC from a visit to the Principality of Andorra, each person may take, without paying any customs duties or taxes, the quantities or values of products purchased in Andorra that are listed in the table below. If the limits given here are not exceeded and the products are intended for personal use, it is not necessary to declare them at the Community Customs. Caution! The permissible quantities and values may vary according to one's age.

The permissible quantities of alcoholic beverages, tobacco, coffee, tea, perfumes and colognes are limited but their value is not taken into consideration. On the other hand, the permissible quantities of milk, butter, sugar, sweets and meat are also limited and their value is taken into account. For all other agricultural products, (foods, beverages and tobacco) or industrial products (manufactured goods not including food), the limit is based on value alone.

All products that exceed the individual duty-free allowances must be declared at customs. The value of allowances may not be accumulated either between travellers or between agricultural and industrial products for the purpose of taking a product whose value exceeds the respective individual allowance.

Before crossing the frontier, request information at the Community customs on the special limitations that may apply, particularly on animal or vegetable products, live animals, species in danger of extinction, pharmaceuticals, weapons and ammunition, works of art and collector's items, foreign currency, gold and means of payment.
