You need 1 test within 24 hours of arrival. IF you stay for longer than a week you also need another test a week later. These tests are free.

For returning to the UK, you need a test before departure, this is a UK requirment.

This must be taken within the immediate days before you fly to the UK.

As you are only in Gibraltar for the weekend, you could potentially get this test done at the same time.

This test costs £30 per person.

I've seen reports of the testing people being happy to use the same swab for both purposes. But you need to pay £30 to get the necessary certificate to let you fly back.

Hope this makes sense.
