To get around inside the country
On public transport
Two regular lines connect the parishes and the main stops are on the busiest roads in the urban centres. The tickets can be bought on the bus itself. The services usually run from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
EXPRESS BUS: This is the fastest, most frequent line which connects the urban entres of each parish to the capital. The route crosses the country on side roads to avoid the town and village centres. The express bus is identified by its orange colour, and the stops are located in the outskirts of the towns and villages.
INTERURBAN LINES: The interurban public transport service connects all of the towns on six different lines crossing the urban centres. Each parish has a municipal transport service which connects the small villages not covered on the main routes. You will find the stops in the main streets and avenues of the urban centres.
Unlike other countries of Europe, the taxi service is usually given from the taxi ranks or by booking by telephone. The taxi ranks are generally in the most central streets of the shopping areas.

Documentation and visas:
Andorra does not require visas for any nationality. However, as it is necessary to go either through Spain or France to get to Andorra, all nationals from countries not in the Shengen area must check at home whether they need a multiple entry visa to enter or leave the countries that form part of the Shengen area and be able to get to Andorra. The type of visa will depend on the country of origin of the visitor, although the most common is usually the double or multiple entry visa. The documentation needed for entering the country will basically depend on whether the person is of legal age.
