Relocating to Gibraltar

Individuals relocating to work in Gibraltar have two options: live in Gibraltar or across the border in Spain.

There is a strong market for rental properties in Gibraltar, and renters are presented with plenty of options. Rental prices vary significantly based on location and can be high here so many people choose to work in Gibraltar and live across the border in Spain. There are a number of Spanish towns near the border that are easily commutable including Sotogrande and Duquesa where you'll be paying far less for an apartment than here in Gibraltar.

If you do choose to buy, properties in Gibraltar are a great investment and there are a number of new developments in construction. Purchasing property in Gibraltar follows a similar process to the UK.

Depending on how far from the border you live, Gibraltar can also be accessed from Spain by a short walk or some people choose to park across the border and take the short walk or bus into the centre to work.

Language can also be an influencing factor when choosing to relocate.

Gibraltarians also often use Llanito, which is an eclectic mix of English and Andalusian Spanish. While knowing some Spanish is not essential for living and working in Gibraltar, it will be very helpful.
