Furthermore, the following has to be taken into consideration:

Applicants which have the nationality of an EU country or of a country of the European Economic Area are given preferential treatment in the order of the assignment of the immigration permits (s. Art. 39 Immigration Law).

The Immigration authorities may demand that the foreign official documents have to be provided with an apostille in accordance with The Hague Convention, if there are rising any doubts about their authenticity, origin or jurisdiction of the issuing authority (s. Art. 8.3 Implementing Regulations). As well the immigration authority may demand other documents that it considers to be necessary in order to verify the applicant's data (s. Art. 8.4 Implementing Regulations).

For dealing with the application the immigration office charges an official fee of 171,20 Euros. This charge has to be paid already when the application form is collected.

The new immigration laws have been declared unconstitutional by the Andorran constitutional court in February 2001. The new immigration laws "Llei qualificada d'Immigració" have passed the parliament in May 2002 and came into force in September 2002. The Implementing Regulations "Decret regulador del Servei d'Immigració" have been promulgated by the government on 16.10.2002 and came into force on 24.10.2002.
