Services for British nationals and visitors

As Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory, services for British Nationals in Gibraltar are the responsibility of HM Government of Gibraltar. The Civil Status and Registration Office deal with marriage and civil partnerships, passports, Visas, ID cards and Civilian Registration Cards, legalisation of documents, as well as the registration of births and deaths in Gibraltar. For further information, please follow the link below or email csro@gibraltar.gov.gi. Victims of crime should contact the Royal Gibraltar Police.

Although we will do our best to help signpost anyone needing assistance to the most appropriate provider, the Office of the Governor does not provide consular services. Details of online services provided by the UK are available at Gibraltar and the UK.
