Living in Gibraltar Spain

Gibraltar is a self-governing British overseas territory, overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar, at the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula. The entire country only takes up 6.8 square kilometers (2.6 square miles).  The official language of Gibraltar is English, and is used by the Government and in schools. Most locals are bilingual, also speaking Spanish, due to Gibraltar’s proximity to Spain. The British military traditionally dominated Gibraltar’s economy, with the naval dockyard providing the bulk of economic activity. This however, has diminished over the last twenty years, and is estimated to account for only 7% of the local economy, compared to over 60% in 1984. Today, Gibraltar’s economy is dominated by four main sectors: financial services, internet gaming, shipping and tourism (including retail for visitors).

In the early 2000s, many bookmakers and online gaming operators relocated to Gibraltar to benefit from operating in a regulated jurisdiction with a favourable corporate tax regime. However, this corporate tax regime for non-resident controlled companies was phased out by January 2011 and replaced by an across the board Corporate Tax rate of 10%.

Tourism is also a significant industry. Gibraltar is a popular port for cruise ships and attracts day visitors from resorts in Spain.

The Rock is a popular tourist attraction, particularly among British tourists and residents in the southern coast of Spain.
It is also a popular shopping destination, and all goods and services are VAT free. Many of the large British high street chains have branches or franchises in Gibraltar including Marks & Spencer and Mothercare Branches and franchises of international retailers such as Tommy Hilfiger and Sunglass Hut are also present in Gibraltar, as is the Spanish clothing company Mango.

Within Gibraltar, the main form of transport is the car. Motorbikes are also very popular and there is a good modern bus service. Unlike in other British territories, traffic drives on the right, as the territory shares a land border with Spain. There is a Gibraltar Cable Car  which runs from ground level to the top of the Rock, with an intermediate station at Apes’ Den . Gibraltar maintains regular flight connections to London and Manchester. Budget airline easyJet also flies to Liverpool. Gibraltar Airport is unusual not only due to its proximity to the city centre resulting in the airport terminal being within walking distance of much of Gibraltar but also because the runway intersects Winston Churchill Avenue, the main north-south street, requiring movable barricades to close when aircraft land or depart.

Health care in Gibraltar

All Gibraltarians are entitled to health care in public wards and clinics at the hospital and primary health care centre. All other British citizens are also entitled to free of charge treatment on the Rock on presentation of a valid British passport during stays of up to 30 days. Other EU nationals are equally entitled to treatment on presentation of a valid European Health Insurance Card.


Work Permit/Residence Permit for Gibraltar

Because Gibraltar is a member of the European Union, any other EU nationals are allowed to work and live in Gibraltar. You will initially be granted a six-month visa, and then if you find suitable work or start a business, you will be granted a 5-year renewable work permit. Non-EU members have more restrictions. You can be granted a work permit if it is determined that no native Gibraltarian or EU national can fill your prospective occupation. If you are able to land a job because of your special skills, then you will be granted a residence permit, which lasts as long as your job.

Work permits granted through Gibraltar’s Employment Department. Your prospective employer will have to satisfy the officials in this department that they need to hire a foreigner for the position. The employer does the majority of the work in this process. Work permits are initially granted for up to 12 months. You must apply for a residence permit through the Civil Status and Immigration Department of the Gibraltar government. It is advisable that you obtain an ID card through this department for several administrative services. You should present your work contract to the officials, as well as evidence of your residency, such as a lease contract.
