IT specialists and YouTubers typically work as freelancers and in most cases are providing their services over distance to their clients. This gives you a certain flexibility to choose where you are based and you may choose your country of residence based on your personal preferences rather than where your client is based. Andorra offers unique advantages to YouTubers and IT specialists that decide to set up their home in Andorra. Fast fiber optics internet, low living costs and a beautiful mountain environment for those that enjoy an active lifestyle. All this within 2.5h reach from Barcelona, one of Europe's most cosmopolitan cities.
Many freelancers do not operate through a legal entity, but are invoicing for their services under their own name. Unfortunately Andorra does not facilitate entry to freelancers only unless they are associated to specific professions that typically operate a professionals (doctors, scientists, architects etc.). Therefore we recommend the creation of a company in Andorra that formalizes your activity under a properly established entity. Based on the participation in a company and being one of the directors you may then formally request your residency in Andorra.
To meet with the local immigration requirements you may claim residency if you are participating in a company with at least 10% and work as active board member or director for the company. Therefore the first step for your project in Andorra is the set-up of a company.
