Work & Residence Permits in Gibraltar
If you have an EU passport or reside in an EEA member country you will be able to work freely in Gibraltar.
Non-EU nationals must apply for a work permit to work in Gibraltar. To apply for a work permit, non-EU nationals must go through the Employment Training Board (ETB). This can only be processed after a contract of employment is in place.
The ETB’s decision to grant non-EU nationals with a work permit normally relates to whether the position could be filled by an EU national. For this reason, many companies in Gibraltar will only hire non-EU nationals for specialised roles.
Work permits in Gibraltar are issued for 12 months. After this, if a worker is intending to stay in Gibraltar, the permit must be renewed. The ETB determines an individual’s nationality only by their passport and not by any other residency card.
