YOU CAN APPLY FOR SPANISH NATIONALITY THROUGH THIS LAW IF YOU...
Were born outside of Spain to a father/mother, grandfather/grandmother, who were originally Spanish.
It is not required to prove that they emigrated in a specific period, nor does it affect the country where they settled (i.e. valid for all of Latin America, the Caribbean, USA, etc.).
Were born outside of Spain to a father/mother, grandfather/grandmother, who were originally Spanish and who, as a result of having suffered exile for political, ideological or religious reasons or for reasons of sexual orientation and identity, have lost or renounced to their Spanish Nationality.
Are sons/daughters of Spanish women who lost their nationality because they married foreigners before the Spanish Constitution came into force (28/12/1978).
For example, a woman from Galicia who lost her Spanish Nationality because she married a Venezuelan in 1960.
Are sons/daughters who could not naturalise as Spanish as you were of legal age at the time when the Spanish parent obtained Spanish Nationality of origin by the Law of Historical Memory (Law 52/2007).
For example, there are many cases of younger siblings who were able to become Spanish but not the older ones, with this new law, this situation is corrected and the older siblings have every right to become Spanish in this way.
Any child of Spanish parents who obtained the Spanish Nationality of origin through the previous Law of Historical Memory (Law 52/2007).
You obtained Spanish Nationality by option as children of parents who were originally Spanish (Law 36/2002).
STEPS TO OBTAIN SPANISH NATIONALITY THROUGH THE NEW LAW ON GRANDCHILDREN
The deadline to apply for Spanish Nationality through the new Law on Grandchildren is 24 months from the 20th of October 2022, i.e. 20/10/24.
General elections will be called in December 2023 in Spain. If the current government does not remain in power, the opposition parties have already clearly stated that they will repeal this law. So, if this happens, we would be talking about a deadline of April or May 2024 at the latest.
WHERE SHOULD I SUBMIT MY APPLICATION?
The application must be submitted at the Spanish Consulate of the city of residence of the interested parties in the corresponding country.
PREPARATION OF THE FILE
We recommend that you engage the services of specialised lawyers and avoid so-called "consultants" who are neither registered nor professionally regulated.
It is essential to submit a perfect and complete dossier to avoid being required for 30 days to correct possible defects. If this happens, your file may be archived and your hopes of becoming Spanish may be dashed.
REGISTRATION OF YOUR FILE
We help you to make an appointment with the corresponding consulate and advise you on the day you have to go to the Spanish Consulate in person.
GRANTING AND FORMALISATION OF NATIONALITY
Once the Spanish Nationality has been granted, we assist you in the process of the Swearing in as well as the inscription in the Civil Registry and the procedure to obtain the Spanish National Identity Card and the corresponding Spanish passport.
SPANISH NATIONALITY FOR MY FAMILY
If you have children, once you have applied for Spanish Nationality, we can start the naturalisation process for them, as some consulates are allowing applications to be submitted depending on the parents' file without theirs having been resolved, which saves a lot of time.
BENEFITS OF OBTAINING SPANISH NATIONALITY
Nationality of origin is granted (as if you were born in Spain), i.e., once you have obtained citizenship, you can pass it on to your children and grandchildren.
You do not need to be resident in Spain to obtain it.
Obtaining nationality does not oblige you to pay taxes in Spain (unless you decide to reside in Spain permanently).
Obtaining Spanish nationality does not oblige you to renounce your original nationality (they are compatible).
It grants you not only Spanish citizenship, but also European citizenship, which allows you to travel and work freely throughout Europe.
The Spanish passport is the third most powerful passport in the world (after Japan and Singapore) and allows you to travel to more than 190 countries without needing to apply for any kind of visa.
