See the Government of Gibraltar Technical Notice (https://bit.ly/3iT4n05) which sets out entry requirements in full. Additionally, the official Gibraltar Tourist Board website lists (https://www.visitgibraltar.gi/covid-19) the countries included in the green, amber and red lists, and provides comprehensive information about the requirements in respect of COVID-19 for travelling to Gibraltar, including information on how to book your COVID-19 tests before you arrive. The website also gives information for travellers entering by sea, and crossing the land border into Gibraltar. If you have only been in countries or territories on the green list in the 10 days preceding your arrival in Gibraltar by air and are fully vaccinated, then you must upload your vaccination certificate on the Passenger Locator Form. You must book a COVID-19 lateral flow test before arriving in Gibraltar. This test must take place within 24 hours of arrival.

If you have been to a country on the red list in the previous 10 days, you are not permitted to enter Gibraltar, unless you meet one of the specified exemption categories. The exemption categories are listed in this Government of Gibraltar Technical Notice. If you meet the red list exemption categories to enter Gibraltar by air and you are fully vaccinated, you must upload your vaccination certificate on the Passenger Locator Form.
