Gibraltar is situated at the southernmost point of the Iberian Peninsula where Europe is closest to Africa. Often called ‘the rock’, Gibraltar is just 5km long and 1400 feet above sea level. It’s closest neighbour is Spain to the north, with Morocco 26 km across the sea. It has a population of about 30,000 people and is a very popular destination for British expats. The official language is English, although Spanish is often spoken along with a curious mix of both Spanish and English. Gibraltar is home to a British Royal Navy base and cruise ships frequently stop for passengers to take advantage of the tax-free shopping.

The process of buying a property in Gibraltar is fairly similar to buying in the UK. There are no restrictions on foreign nationals making a purchase, although anyone without a residency permits or work permits will need to go through an application process with the Gibraltar government. You should expect property to be quite expensive as space is at a premium. Recently there have been several developments, which have been built in conjunction with the government, in order to create more affordable housing.
