Cross-border Gibraltar workers to retain free movement even after Brexit, Spain says

Drivers cross the Gibraltar border from Spain in La Linea de la Concepcion

MADRID (Reuters) – Cross-border workers who commute between Gibraltar and Spain will be exempt from border controls after Brexit even if no separate deal on free movement is reached with Britain, Spanish Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya said on Monday.

People who live in the British territory of Gibraltar on the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula and work in Spain or vice versa, and who had registered their status before Jan. 1, will continue to be allowed to cross the border freely, Gonzalez Laya told a news conference.

Other travellers will require a passport stamp.
