Please note that an 'Individual Questionnaire' or a 'Notifiable Document' MUST be accompanied by a Royal Gibraltar Police Vetting Application Form in accordance with Section 30C of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2015. The form must be submitted to the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission, who will liaise with the RGP in order to make the relevant enquiries.
For any applicant that is not a Gibraltarian, or has not lived in Gibraltar for the last 10 years, in addition to the RGP vetting form, he/she must also provide the GFSC with a report of their criminal record from the relevant authority in the jurisdiction/s in which they have been ordinarily resident for the last 10 years and/or from any other jurisdiction where the applicant has spent a considerable amount of years resident in the past. If the report is not in English, this must be accompanied by a translation from a certified Translator.

1. The RGP Vetting Form must be completed by the applicant in full. Should any section be incomplete, this cannot be accepted.
