Quickly open an offshore in Gibraltar in 2022 can be done in two ways. The first is to register a company from scratch. The process takes up to 2 weeks if all the documents are prepared correctly. The second is to buy a shelf company. This is how a registered company is called, which has never worked anywhere, so it has a clean history and does not require special verification. In this case, you can become an offshore owner in 2-3 days.
