Advice for travellers to and from Gibraltar

Advice for travellers to and from Gibraltar
/ SUR
  • British Airways is still running flights between Gibraltar and the UK but strict border controls are in place

British Airways is still running flights into Gibraltar from UK but the government is warning British travellers not to try to enter Spain across the land border from Gibraltar unless they are legally resident and have documentation to prove it.

Only Spanish citizens or people who are legally resident are permitted to enter the country, and the Spanish authorities are also forbidding entry to visit a holiday home which is not a person's habitual residence.

The advice also says that people crossing into Gibraltar from Spain to take a flight must present evidence of a confirmed flight booking, together with valid travel documents, to both the Spanish and Gibraltarian immigration officers. They must also go immediately to the airport terminal.
