OBTAINING SPANISH NATIONALITY THROUGH THE "DEMOCRATIC MEMORY LAW"
POSSIBILITY OF ACQUIRING SPANISH NATIONALITY...
At long last, the Spanish Government is promoting the long-awaited and well-known "Democratic Memory Law" (through the preliminary draft of the Historical Memory Law), wherein an Additional Provision of this Law establishes the possibility of acquiring Spanish nationality for all those born outside of Spain to a father or mother, grandfather or grandmother, who had originally been Spanish, and who, as a consequence of having suffered exile for political, ideological or belief reasons, renounced Spanish nationality, and therefore, their relatives may now opt for said nationality – the purpose of article 20 of the Civil Code, i.e., any descendant of a Spanish grandfather or grandmother.
This declaration must be formalised within two years from this law entering into force.
“Historic Opportunity for Spanish Descendants”
...AND ALSO GAINING THE STATUS OF AN EUROPEAN CITIZEN
It appears that the Regulation is going to be approved in July of this year by the Spanish Parliament, according to official sources and Spanish newspapers; It is a unique opportunity, but subject to a short term of 2 years, and an avalanche of applications is expected, so it is essential to be very agile when applying if you want to obtain it with due guarantees.
The Law is not yet final, and may undergo some changes, but it seems that this is going to be the “spirit” of the law, allowing so many descendants of Spaniards throughout the world to be able to obtain nationality, and therefore, to obtain the advantages of being a Spanish citizen and at the same time attaining the status of an European citizen, travelling or working freely throughout Europe.

04/07/2022 - THE CONGRESS CONSTITUTIONAL COMMITTEE HAS APPROVED THE DEMOCRATIC MEMORY LAW
This Monday, 4th July, the Constitutional Commission of Congress has approved the draft Democratic Memory Law, with the intention that it reaches the Senate during this same month of July and the entire parliamentary process can be completed in the autumn. The rule must still be approved in the plenary session of the Congress of Deputies. The Government already has a majority tied up in its favour; so, if there are no surprises, the so-called Democratic Memory Law could come into force in October of this year, 2022, allowing valid candidates to apply for Spanish nationality by all descendants of Spaniards who lost that entitlement, which is a historic opportunity.
