Law 9/2012, May 31, to amend the law of immigration because the General Council in its session of May 31, 2012, has approved the following: Law 9/2012, May 31, to amend the law of immigration exhibition of illustrations and the approval of a new immigration law to replace the current so far , adopted and recast by the Legislative Decree of the 25th of June 2008, and also the law 17/2006 of 30 November, qualified passive residences, has been considered a necessity in order to achieve three fundamental objectives:-firstly, the regulation of the passive residences, which until now was framed in a separate policy, within the regulatory body which establishes the legal regime of the immigration in the Principality of Andorra.

-Secondly, to create new types of immigration permits to complete the set already exists and that respond to the need to increase the attractiveness of the Principality of Andorra as a destination of foreign people that respond to certain profiles.

-Thirdly, to include certain technical corrections to specify or clarify some issues included in the current regulations, the interpretation and practical application of which, in some cases, had raised some questions.

For reasons of urgency, the legislative regulation of the passive residences, a company for the first time in 1996, was the subject of a specific law, and held since then in a separate regulatory body of which regulates the legal immigration in Andorran territory. Fifteen years after that initial regulation, is estimated to be convenient, for reasons of proper legislative regulation, incorporate systematic so far was contained in the aforementioned law 17/2006, in the general rule governing immigration. For this reason, this regulation has been included, with the necessary adaptations to fit in this law, as a specific chapter in the new title IX of the latter, as will be shown later.

The traditional regulation of immigration permits turned around the dichotomy that exists between the two possible situations in which a foreign person could access the Andorran residence: on the one hand, the immigrants that came in Andorran territory with the aim of exercising a professional activity, sector or not, and is incorporated into the labour market and national services and , on the other hand, those who establish residency in Andorra without desire to exercise any activity and who were placed in the field of passive residences.

Leaving aside other situations already considered legally and that ended with a hybrid component between the two aforementioned situations, such as those of students and researchers, it has been observed the opportunity to give entry into the Andorran legal system in new types of immigration regimes that, without fit properly in any of the situations mentioned, that is to say, without referring to people with a desire to integrate fully in the labour market and national services , but also to remain in a situation totally passive, would have to provide coverage to foreigners who, enjoying a certain level of professional qualification or a renowned reputation in the fields of cultural, scientific or sports, wish to access the Andorran residence keeping your activity or professional work in the corresponding sphere, but with a highly international projection, that is to say, without substantially intervene in the Andorran market.

To accommodate these new categories of residents, have created two new types of permits: permits for residence for professionals with international projection and the residence permits for reasons of scientific, cultural and sports attractions. Both types of authorisations have been framed within the so-called immigration permits of residence without work, that is the new heading under which also have been called the old passive residence permits.

Finally, the enterprise reform to this law introduces certain modifications in the regime of the until now called passive residences. First of all, it's been to be renamed residences without lucrative activity. Secondly, we have reviewed some of the requirements needed to obtain the corresponding authorization. As a novelty, more significant at this point, the new regulation requires that applicants for authorisation to take the commitment, the fulfilment of which must justify a posteriori, carry out investments in assets located in Andorra for a minimum amount of 400,000 euros. The purpose of this requirement, which does not replace the need to maintain a guarantee deposit to the INAF for an amount of 50,000 euros, is the need to restrict access to the residence without lucrative activity in an accurate and determined commitment to permanent links with the country, which would be undoubtedly guaranteed through the requirement of investment in these assets of Andorran base. At this point, moreover, the Andorran regulation happens to align with any of the major foreign jurisdictions in which similar kinds of regimes are established, with respect to the requirements, both quantitative as well as qualitative, conditions of access to the corresponding immigration permits in the respective countries.

With regard to the content, this law tries to respect in all that has been made possible the structure of the current immigration law until now has limited modifications to the strictly necessary to achieve the objectives targeted already.

The titles and (from the scope of application of the law), II (of the competent bodies in the field of immigration and of their powers) and III (of the Central Register of immigration), which have been maintained with minimal alterations in the contents, regulate general aspects concerning the application of the law and the determination of the bodies with competence in the area of immigration, both with regard to the definition of the corresponding policies as to the management of records, and delimit the General aspects of the functioning of the Central Register of immigration, the detailed regulation of which refers to the statutory regulations.


The titles IV (out of the entry in the Principality of Andorra) and V (tourist scheme), which also coincide with regard to content with the regulations in force so far, are concerned, with regard to the first, to regulate certain matters of general matters that concern the conditions for the entry into the territory of Andorra to foreign persons and, with regard to the second, the principles conditions and limitations that have to observe foreign access to Andorran territory in tourism.

Title VI (of the immigration permits and their initial concession) is to regulate the granting of the authorisations of immigration and to establish the General principles to be followed, the economic and social criteria that should guide government policy on the matter, the types of permissions that exist, the criteria for granting the authorisations and Finally, that related to the denial of the permit. In particular, the third chapter of this title VI, which delimit the various types of immigration permits, is what has been the subject of a deeper review, aimed at giving them entry to the new categories of permissions that this law incorporates, in addition to consecrate the new designations of which have undergone a change of heading.

The title VII (Of the renovation of the immigration permits) and VIII (Of the cancellation and expiry of the immigration permits) of this law have been the subject of minimal technical modifications aimed to ensure the fit with the remaining provisions of the law that have been reviewed and, in particular, with the newly-created categories. The first of the two titles establishes the criteria of both General noun as formal or procedural, which must verify the resident to access the renewal of its authorization, as well as a number of specific provisions on the matter for certain specific categories of permissions. The title VIII governs the grounds, procedures and effects of the cancellation of the permits, with or without a transcript, as well as everything that is related to the event of the expiry of authorisations and their regularization.

The title IX (the immigration permits of residence without work ") is a novelty with respect to the previous regulations in this law. It gives specific and separate check-in, such as a section within the general rule governing immigration, to the regime of the so-called immigration permits of residence without work, which comprise, on the one hand, the formerly known as passive residences, nursing homes currently without lucrative activity and, on the other hand, the new residences for professionals with international projection and residences for reasons of scientific interest sports, cultural and, already mentioned. The regulation contained in this title, with respect to which the remaining provisions of the law are rules of subsidiary application, aims to establish the specific requirements that you will need to observe the alien who intend to obtain the licences.

The title X (of the family regrouping), which has undergone minor modifications, considered the General principles applicable with respect to the people who request the Andorran residence for reasons of family regrouping, and takes care of setting up the catalogue of persons who are authorised to access, the necessary requirements for the purpose and the rules applicable to the initial grant and the denial of the corresponding authorizations.

The title XI (Of the irregular situation in the area of immigration) anticipated the consequences resulting in Andorran territory of foreigners who, for not having the mandatory authorization of immigration in force, are in an irregular situation. For its part, the title XII (administrative police measures to cease an irregular situation and its procedures) provides for the mechanisms that have law enforcement authorities of the Principality of Andorra to put an end to the irregular situations in the area of immigration in which it could find a foreign person, and are included in this effect the figures of the denial of access , and the ousting of the administrative expulsion.

Title XIII (Of the obligations of the employer or of the beneficiary of the provision of services) refers to the obligations of the employer or of the beneficiary of the provision of services, in connection with the situation in the area of immigration of the foreign person who has contracted in the framework of a provision of services, whether in the labour regime, either as a self-employed worker. These obligations extend from the moment of the contract up to the time of maturity of the relationship, as well as its duration. This title has only been subject to minor technical tweaks to adapt it technically more important modifications incorporated into the law.

Title XIV (infringements and sanctions) is divided into three chapters, which have the object, respectively, the definition of the types of infringements in the area of immigration, the establishment of penalties associated with each offender and, finally, the procedure that must be followed to impose these sanctions. Leaving aside the precise changes required to include within that sanctioning the new residency cases incorporated in this law include the reform of the disciplinary procedure undertaken by the law, which has resulted in the modification of articles 150 and 151.

The rates applicable to the delivery of the various categories of permits, certificates and duplicates, the regulation of which handles the title XV (fees in the area of immigration), have been the subject of review with regard to the amount and that it was necessary to accommodate the new types of permits with this law.


Finally, the Title XVI (special procedure abbreviated in matter of immigration) aims to regulate the procedure to be followed in matters of immigration, which is applicable in all that affects this specific matter of relations between the Administration and the administered, with the exception of the appeal against the aforementioned rates, which shall be governed by the General rules of administrative procedure. This title, which has experienced a minimal alterations in this law, establishes the administrative appeals that may be lodged against acts of the Administration in the field of immigration, as well as the procedure to be applied in the first and in the second instance.
