The land-locked state of Andorra in Europe is one of the 38 countries that are eligible for the United States' Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Rather than having to apply for a regular travel visa for the United States, citizens of Andorra can use the ESTA system (Electronic System for Travel Authorization) for travel under the VWP.
Andorra joined the Visa Waiver Program in 1991 and has been an active member ever since. The VWP allows travelers from Andorra to visit the US for a period of 90 days without a visa. Travelers must arrive by air or sea, must have an electronic and machine-readable passport, and must be traveling to the United States for a period of 90 days or less. Their reasons for travel must fall under one of the following categories: tourism, business, medical, or transit purposes.
The United States and Andorra have had diplomatic relations in place since 21 February 1995, just two years after Andorra established themselves as a sovereign parliamentary democracy. Since then, Andorra and the US have had a friendly relationship, despite not having much trade or investment interest in each other.
Culturally, Andorra and the United States are connected through the U.S Fullbright Exchange Program; an exchange set up to allow both nations to share cultures and to improve relations further.
Andorra has an embassy in place in New York City. While the United States does not have an embassy in Andorra itself, it is accredited to Andorra from its embassy in Madrid, Spain.
