The nationality by residence is granted to those who have been residing for:

  • 10 years in Spain.
  • 5 years in the case of refugees
  • 2 years in the case of nationals of Ibero-American countries, Andorra, the Philippines, Equatorial Guinea, Portugal or people of Sephardic origin
  • 1 year and if they were born on Spanish territory:
    • Those who did not exercise their right to acquire the nationality by option
    • Those who have been legally subject to Spanish guardianship or foster care.
    • Those who have been married to a Spanish citizen for a year
    • widowers and those born outside Spain and that have ancestors of Spanish origin.
This form of acquiring nationality is ex gratia and is not subject to the general rules of administrative procedure.

The nationality by naturaization is granted, discretionally, through a Royal Decree by the Government, after examining the concurrence of exceptional circumstances.

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

-Swear or promise loyalty to the King and obedience to the Constitution and the laws.

The Spanish Nationality will be entitled to those who have owned and used the Spanish nationality during  an uninterrupted  period of 10 years, in good faith, based on a Civil Registry Record.

The person concerned must have maintained an active attitude regarding said possession and use of the Spanish nationality, which means that he or she must have behaved himself/herself as a Spaniard, both in exercising his/her rights and fulfilling his/her duties as regards the authorities of Spain.
