The land frontier between Gibraltar and Spain is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week both for vehicles and pedestrians. There is no limit on the number of frontier crossings you can make.

By car you take the A-7 and turn off at San Roque for La Línea. The route to the border is well sign-posted. Unfortunately, lengthy queues can form for cars wishing to go onto and leave the Rock. It is often better to park your car in La Línea and walk across the frontier.

To check queues (exiting Gibraltar) at the border call Frontier Queue Information - Tel: +350 20042777.
