This wage will be effective as of 1 January 2022 for any employee over 15 years of age in Andorra and will be subject to the following concepts:
Hourly wage: € 6.68
Daily wage: € 53.44
Monthly wage: € 1,157.87

With this wage increase, the Government of Andorra is moving in the direction of complying with the Council of Europe’s recommendation that the minimum wage in Andorra should reach 60% of the average wage in the Principality.

It consists of the Bill on Measures for the Protection and Flexibilisation of the Housing Rental Market, Affordable Prices and the Improvement of Purchasing Power.
