La Linea clamours for special tax regime to cater for Gibraltar-based companies that are looking to relocate due to Brexit.

After many months of uncertainty caused by the COVID19 pandemic and subsequent global lockdowns, Gibraltarians and EU residents of Gibraltar are now able to cross the frontier into Spain.

Those wishing to cross the frontier will need a Gibraltar ID or residence card to prove residence in Gibraltar.

This has been confirmed by the Government of Gibraltar, who said “following direct contact between the Chief Minister and the Spanish Minister of the Interior, residents of Gibraltar and EU residents of Gibraltar are now able to cross the frontier into Spain.”

Of course, once in Spain, citizens must ensure that they comply with the ongoing requirements of Phase 3, which began on the 8th June, of the Spanish de-escalation rules.

The Chief Minister Fabian Picardo said:

“I am very grateful to Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska for his support and intervention in respect of this matter. I know many people will have been for many weeks now wanting to see loved ones and this decision now permits fluidity to be almost back to normal. I urge people to familiarise themselves with the relevant rules under Spanish law for movement in Spain under Phase 3 of their de-escalation plans before going into Spain, so they do not inadvertently breach the rules.”
