As of 1 March 2019, the Principality of Andorra and the Vatican City State / the Holy See will be part of the geographical scope of the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) schemes.

From that date onwards, all existing scheme participants should be able to send or to receive Credit Transfer (SCT), SEPA Instant Credit Transfer (SCT Inst) and SEPA Direct Debit (SDD) transactions to and from SCT, SCT Inst, SDD  scheme participants from the Principality of Andorra and the Vatican City State / the Holy See as and when their financial institutions join these schemes.

As of 1 March 2019, the geographical scope of the SEPA schemes will consist of the following 36 countries: the 28 EU Member States plus Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Monaco, San Marino, the Principality of Andorra and the Vatican City State / the Holy See.
