And Gibraltar's border is sorted
An agreement in principle has been reached between the UK and Spain over Gibraltar’s future relationship with the European Union.

The Chief minister says the agreement allows Gibraltar to avert the worst effects of a Hard Brexit. He says no aspect of the agreement transgress Sovereignty, Jurisdiction and Control.

Fabian Picardo says the new proposed agreement will allow Gibraltar to re-set its relationship with Spain.

The agreement will allow for maximised and unrestricted access to the Schengen area, for people and Goods.

A new proposed framework would govern all relationships between Gibraltar and the EU.

Spain as the member state will be responsible for implementing Schengen, which would see the European border Agency Frontex control entry and access points in Gibraltar for an initial period of 4 years.

When asked by GBC, Mr Picardo said people should not be concerned, about Guardia Civil agents controlling Gibraltar’s entry and exit points after the initial 4 year period.

With negotiations having gone to the wire, the Chief Minister says a few lose threads remain and that these will be sorted out over the next few weeks.


A bit more about GHIC and EHIC:

A European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) gives you the right to access state-provided healthcare during a temporary stay in the EU.
Your UK EHIC continues to be valid in the EU.
You can get a provisional replacement certificate (PRC) if you need treatment and do not have a card.
We will soon be replacing the EHIC with a new UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). These pages and the application portal will still refer to EHIC.
Your EHIC is valid in the EU until it expires. You do not need to apply for a GHIC if you already have an EHIC. Once your EHIC has expired, you’ll be able to replace it with a GHIC.
Beware of unofficial websites, which may charge if you apply through them. An EHIC or GHIC is free of charge.
Not everyone can apply online. Please read the Who's eligible section below for more information.

Apply for your GHIC now

GHICs only cover you in EU countries. They do not cover you in Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland.
If you were already visiting Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland before 1 January 2021, your UK EHIC entitlements will continue until you leave that country.
