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.

Despite the prevalent use of Spanish, the official language is English. And this is not surprising at all, because Gibraltar has long been a colony of Great Britain. Therefore, along with the Gibraltar pound, there is the currency of the United Kingdom, as well as pesetas (Spanish currency).

Being the peninsula located in the Mediterranean Sea, Gibraltar is characterized by dry summers and humid and cool winters. Therefore, tourists consider late summer and spring to be the most comfortable seasons for visiting the peninsula.
