Residency in Gibraltar

Gibraltar offers special residency regimes that are specifically designed to attract HNWIs (Category 2) and High Executives Possessing Specialist Skills (HEPSS). These make Gibraltar a very attractive home for entrepreneurs, for retirees and for suitably qualified individuals and their dependants that wish to enjoy the Mediterranean climate and lifestyle while living in an international finance centre with a favourable tax regime.

Sovereign Fiscalis, now rebranded and trading as Sovereign Tax Services, is a Gibraltar-based tax compliance and advisory firm, specialising in Gibraltar tax and residency. We can manage the entire residency application process, as well as providing introductions to professional service providers, such as legal, real estate and relocation firms. As part of the Sovereign Group, we can also utilise its local and international tax and structuring expertise to advise on international arrangements across multiple jurisdictions.

Individuals applying for Gibraltar residency under the ‘Category 2’ residency regime are required to hold private medical insurance (PMI). Through Gibraltar-based Sovereign Insurance Services (SIS), we can further assist with securing competitive PMI, as well as all types of general or life insurance to meet the individual’s insurance needs in Gibraltar.
