Civil Partnership

A civil partnership is essentially the union of two people regardless of gender or sexual orientation. The Civil Partnership Act recognizes civil partnerships between two people, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, ratified by a binding contract through the signing of an official register. This means that both same sex couples and opposite sex couples have the option of entering into a civil partnership so long as they are eligible to do so. Under its provisions it is possible, by means of a Special Licence granted under Section 12 of the Act, for residents and non-residents alike to enter into a civil partnership in Gibraltar.

It also enables a civil partnership ceremony to be conducted at approved locations outside the Registry outside working hours and at weekends. Non residents wishing to enter into a civil partnership in Gibraltar must provide the Registrar with documentary evidence that they will either be staying in Gibraltar at least one night immediately prior to, or immediately following the ceremony.
