Residence-Permit-in-GibraltarCitizens of EU countries may live and work in Gibraltar based on a six-month residence visa followed by a five-year residence permit. Foreign citizens from non-EU countries fall under the regulations of the Immigration Control Ordinance when applying for a Gibraltar residence visa. Those obtaining a residence permit for Gibraltar are not required to live in the country. Foreign citizens holding a Gibraltar work permit are also granted residence permit for variable periods of time depending on the work they render.

Types of Gibraltar residence permits

The Civil Status and Registration Office in Gibraltar issues two types of residence permits for foreign citizens:

  • - the self-sufficiency residence permits,
  • - the category 2 residence permits for high net worth individuals (HNWI).

The category 2 residence permits are designed for individuals earning at least 120,000 GIP per year and having a net worth of 2 million GIP. Foreign citizens holding category 2 residence permits must pay a tax on their worldwide income in Gibraltar. They are also required to rent or purchase a property in Gibraltar which will be qualified by the Gibraltar Finance Center. Foreign citizens with a category 2 residence permit may set up companies in Gibraltar.

Our  company registration agents in Gibraltar will help you set up a business in the country.

Foreign citizens applying for a self-sufficiency residence permit in Gibraltar are not allowed to work or make any other income. However, they are not required to rent or buy a property in Gibraltar.

How to apply for a Gibraltar residence permit

In order to obtain a Gibraltar residence permit, an applicant must submit the following documents:

  • - a passport or ID card for EU citizens,
  • - proof of accommodation,
  • - one photograph,
  • - proof of income, where applicable,
  • - proof of payment of the registration fee,
  • - information about family members,
  • - an application form.

Non-EU citizens will first receive a civil registration for one year, followed by a four-year registration card. The Gibraltar residence permit will be renewed every five years.
