Spanish citizenship to grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Spaniards

February 18, 2019 15 By Christian Gutierrez and Priscilla Gutierrez

The dream of the Spanish of grandchildren and great grandchildren to have Spanish citizenship is getting closer, because there are only a few days for it to be approved the new Spanish nationality law to grandchildren. The forecast is that the law is approved at the beginning of March 2019. With the anticipation of the Spanish election for president on 28 of April, the proposed law was not approved, and now it depends on the new government that will assume the presidency of Spain return to transact the bill.

A Spanish for Spanish citizenship to grandchildren today is only valid if the grandson of Spanish is less than 18 years, for example, his grandfather or grandmother were born in Spain and his father or his mother just like you were born in Brazil or any other country, you will only have the right to Spanish citizenship if you are under 18 years, with the new law being passed the age limit will no longer exist.

As the case of Spanish citizenship to Spanish great-grandchildren, the case is more difficult, but also possible with this new law, Here I comment on the case of my family, my sisters and I are grandchildren of Spanish, in 2009 we take our citizenship because between the years 2009 a 2011 the law was that the grandchildren over 18 years could get citizenship, my sisters have children and they are great-grandchildren of Spanish and still managed to get citizenship, they had less than 18 years, Another important thing is that the whole family has citizenship, first did my father take his citizenship, then immediately made my and, after my sisters did them and of my nephews, this is due for citizenship from father to son.
