History[edit]

Andorran Minister of External Affairs Xavier Espot Miro with President Barack Obama; 2009.

Andorra and the United States enjoy friendly relations. Diplomatic relations between both nations were established on 21 February 1995 after Andorra adopted a constitution establishing itself as a sovereign parliamentary democracy.[1][2] Since 2000, Andorra has participated in the U.S. Fulbright Exchange Program and works together with the United States on sharing of confiscated proceeds and instrumentalities of crimes.[2]

There are no significant trade or investments between the two nations. Andorra participates in the American Visa Waiver Program; the United States ambassador to Spain is accredited to Andorra, however, the American consul-general in Barcelona carries out the day-to-day relations with Andorra. Andorra is accredited to the United States from its Permanent Mission to the United Nations based in New York City.[2]
