The ways to acquire this nationality are

Nationality by Option is a benefit that is granted to foreigners who meet certain requirements in order for them to acquire the Spanish nationality.

They will have the right to acquire Spanish nationality in this manner:

– Those people who are or have been subject to the parental authority of a Spaniard.

– Those people whose father or mother had been Spanish nationals and had been born in Spain.

– Those persons whose birth in Spain or whose establishment of parentage (meaning establishing who are the parents of a person) occurs after the age of eighteen.

– In this case, the period to apply for nationality is two years from the date when the filiation or birth is determined.

– Those persons whose adoption by Spaniards occurs after the age of eighteen. In this case, the right to opt exists until the expiration of two years from the date of adoption.

Nationality by residence is granted to those who have been in Spain during:

  • 10 years legally residing
  • 5 years in the case of refugees
  • 2 years for nationals of Ibero-American countries, Andorra, the Philippines, Equatorial Guinea, Portugal or people of Sephardic origin
  • 1 year for those born in Spanish territory
    • Those who did not exercise their right of option
    • The legal subjects to Spanish guardianship, guardianship or fostering
    • Those who have been married to a Spanish citizen for a year
    • widowers and those born outside Spain with ancestors of Spanish origin.

This form of nationality acquisition is of an extendable nature and is not subject to the general regulations of the administrative procedure.

It will be granted at the discretion of the Government by Royal Decree, after assessing the concurrence of exceptional circumstances.

In the event that you have acquired Spanish nationality by naturalisation card, you must:

– Swearing or pledging allegiance to the King and obedience to the Constitution and laws.

– Declare that you renounce your previous nationality, except if you are a person holding the nationality of an Ibero-American country, Andorra, the Philippines, Equatorial Guinea or Portugal.

Those who have owned and used the Spanish nationality for 10 years, in a continuous manner, in good faith, based on a title registered at the Civil Registry, will have the right to Spanish nationality.

The interested party must have maintained an active attitude in said possession and use of the Spanish nationality. This means that he or she must have behaved himself as a Spanish person, both in the enjoyment of his rights and in the fulfilment of his duties in relation to the Spanish State bodies.

In order to obtain the Spanish nationality, it is mandatory to pass the following tests:

– The exam for obtaining the DELE (Spanish as a Foreign Language Diploma) at level A2or higher. This exam is mandatory only for non-Spanish-speaking candidates.
