What is the main difference between a person that has a Spanish citizenship and a person without a Spanish citizenship? It’s the degree of coolness and awesomeness!
Now that you’ve tasted a little bit of our SuiteLife inside humour, it’s time to get to the serious business. Becoming a Spanish citizen is definitely a big deal, as you will basically be one of the King’s ‘subjects’ from now on!
Having a Spanish citizenship will allow you to enjoy the same rights as Spanish people and EU citizens. You will be able to work without restrictions. You will also have freedom of movement around European cities.
But you also have to renounce to your actual nationality unless you’re from a Spanish-American country.
Here you will find the guide for How to get Spanish citizenship that you need to undertake in order for you to actually get the Spanish citizenship.
However, there are also some exceptions:
In order to fill in the documentation, you will have to go to your Residence Civil Registry.
Note – not to the Ministry of Justice!
In Barcelona, you can find the exact location with this link.
The address is Plaça Duc de Medinaceli, 2, 08071, Phone: (+34) 934120474.
You will have to fill in the application form.
You can find it right here.
Note that during the process you need to prove that your are a “good citizen”. And also show your integration in the Spanish society; for example the basic questions are about your Spanish level and your engagement in social activities to show you are part of Spanish society.
Once you have filled out all the paperwork required of you in the registry, this will be in charge of sending the case to the General Department of Nationality and Civil Status Directorate General of Registries and Notaries. When your file is received you will be notified in writing.
Once informed, where appropriate, the granting of Spanish nationality must perform the subsequent steps in the Civil Registry where you applied.
