Registration of a company in Gibraltar

gibraltar.jpgRocky Gibraltar peninsula is situated in the southern part of the Iberian Peninsula, which is connected with Gibraltar by the isthmus of 1.5 m. Being located in Europe, the territory of Gibraltar is geographically very close to Africa. Such location is strategic, because the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea encounter near the peninsula.

The total area of Gibraltar is about 7 km2. For such small territory there is small population which equals to only 300 000 inhabitants. It should be taken into account that the category of workers in Gibraltar is mainly formed by visitors from Spain.
