How to obtain Spanish citizenship


There are several pathways to obtaining Spanish nationality, each catering to different circumstances. Firstly, the most common method is through residency. To qualify, one must have legally resided in Spain for ten consecutive years. However, there are exceptions: citizens from Ibero-American countries, Andorra, the Philippines, Equatorial Guinea, and Portugal need only two years, while refugees require five years. Furthermore, individuals who marry a Spanish citizen can apply for nationality after one year of residency.

Another route is through descent, where individuals born to Spanish parents automatically acquire nationality, even if born abroad. Additionally, children born in Spain to foreign parents may also be eligible if the parents’ home countries do not automatically confer nationality.

Adoption is another path, granting immediate Spanish nationality to children under 18 adopted by Spanish citizens. Naturalization, granted by royal decree, is a discretionary process typically reserved for individuals with exceptional ties to Spain.

Finally, Sephardic Jews with connections to Spain can apply for nationality without the residency requirement, provided they demonstrate their heritage and a special relationship with Spain.

Each of these pathways underscores Spain’s commitment to recognizing diverse routes to nationality, reflecting its historical, cultural, and social connections globally. For more detailed guidance, consulting with legal experts or the Spanish consulate is advisable.

Our Pay For Success Payment Method Explained

As an alternative to the traditional payment method, we offer our customers a payment method that provides them with more security and a more convenient payment structure. We have named this payment method “Pay For Success” and it offers the following advantages:

It is a split payment method

An advantage of this payment method is that the entire fee does not have to be paid in a single payment. It is an instalment payment method, which is preferred by many of our clients. Since the implementation of this payment method, it has gained great popularity due to the guarantee it provides to our clients.

Reduced risk by transferring much of it to Nodisea

The Pay for Success payment method has been designed so that our customers do not have to bear the full risk of the process. We want to share this burden with you and therefore only 40% of the fees will be paid upfront. In addition, the second instalment will only be due if we obtain a favourable resolution in the process.
