Everyone arriving at Gibraltar has to clear Customs. There are two different channels available red or green.

You should use the red channel if you have any goods to declare or the green channel if you do not.

Customs carry out selective checks in both channels for the following prohibited or restricted goods: drugs, firearms, ammunition, offensive weapons, (eg. flick knives etc), explosives, fireworks, indecent or obscene material, raw and worked ivory, tobacco (cigarettes) in commercial quantities.

When you enter Gibraltar you will pass through Customs and must declare everything in excess of the duty free allowances obtained outside Gibraltar. There are allowances for goods that can be imported free of duty by persons entering Gibraltar and who have not been in Gibraltar for at least 24 hours immediately preceding the time of such entry and not more than once in any calendar month:
