Snowsports Employment

Employment post-Brexit.
The situation for working in Europe is constantly evolving following Brexit. Individual countries recognition of the BASI qualifications is undergoing a period of change as the EU and the UK forge their new relations. For the most up to date information on whether a particular level of the BASI qualification is recognised, it is best to contact the BASI office directly at basi@basi.org.uk or 01479 861 717. For the latest update on the right to work and long-term visas to work in Europe, please visit the government page here.


Qualification Required
  • BASI Level 2 Instructor Qualification

Work Permit​

Although its currency is the Euro, Andorra is not part of the EU, so a work permit is required to be able to work there. A medical check-up is part of the application for a work permit and is carried out by the Andorran immigration service. Ski schools will help with payment and organisation of work permits. In addition the medical check must be repeated every 2 years. 

Other Information

It is also essential to obtain a prosecution history from the police to present with other paperwork. In the UK, this is available from https://www.gov.uk/disclosure-barring-service-check (England & Wales) or www.disclosurescotland.co.uk (Scotland). This information must be no more than 3 months old but may take up to 6 weeks to obtain, so this should be obtained before arriving in Andorra. 

Important Note: In the past there have been problems with paperwork from BASI members going missing in Andorra. Please ensure that you have a personal contact in Andorra to assist with your application process. 

Please Note: Working independently is not permitted as under Andorran law it is illegal to teach outside of a locally recognised ski school.
