Spanish citizenship by marriage: See the detailed step by step how to request your.June 21, 2017
In this post we will explain how to apply for Spanish citizenship being married(a) with Spanish(a), only for you to understand this process because I did (Chris) I have Spanish citizenship and Pri my wife, there is not. So we will count as our process for this request.
This step by step we will describe is the last step to get citizenship, so if you got this text but does not yet know much about it, you can read some previous texts we have made and explain the step by step of each document, follow the links below:
- Register Brazilian wedding in Spain;
- Withand empadronar in Spain?;
- How to make on DAYS (The identity card, equivalent to RG Brazil)?;
- As request the NIE (Alien registration document)?;
- As to prove the CCSE?;
- As to prove the DELE A2?
Once you have done all of the above documents, you must wait a year counting since you did empadronamento, to apply for citizenship, because one of the rules to apply for citizenship, when married(a) with Spanish(a) is that you should live one year in Spain legally.
Since the 2nd half of 2015 the process request has to be made exclusively by internet, via telematics, before it could be made by the civil registry of the city you lived in Spain, Another thing that has changed is that before was not required to take the tests of the CCSE and DELE A2, nowadays is required, proof DELE A2 is mandatory only for non-native speakers of Spanish.
Now that you have all these documents, you are already able to apply for citizenship.
