The answer to your question is no. A child born in Spain of foreign parents will acquire the nationality of his/her parents. The only situation where this child could be considered Spanish is if the country of origin of the parents does not grant the nationality to this child born out of their country. This is the case of certain countries such as: Argentina, Bolivia, Brasil, Cape Verde, Cuba, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal and Uruguay amongst others. In order to know what the law of each country states with regards to a child born out of the parent's home country, is to request this information at the corresponding consulate in Spain.

Hello;
I am a Bolivian mother of a US citizen who was born in Tarragona, Spain. I would like to know if I could process paperwork to legalize my daughter as a Spanish Citizen.

Hello,

Your daughter would be able to request Spanish citizenship after having legally resided in Spain for one year. This would be due to the fact that she was born in Spain.

Dear Marta,
Would you please tell me where I can find the original low for this issue?
one of my friend told me that recently all babies born in Spain can acquire the Spanish nationality after one year.
Regards.
Amir.

Dear Amir,

This law can be found in the Código Civil. Libro I. Titulo 1. If the baby has not been granted any specific nationality then he /she will acquire Spanish citizenship.

Dear Marta,

I have read the Código Civil. Libro I. Titulo 1 and you are right but I found the following link also and here they generally say that for who was born in spain it is possible to apply for the citizenship after one year.
there is no comment about the origin country of parents.
appreciate your help.

Hi Amir,

This is also correct. A child born in Spain will be able to acquire Spanish citizenship through residence after having legally resided in Spain for one year. This residence must be legal and immediate to the citizenship request.

Hi Marta,
Thanks for your reply.

With the word legally residence in spain you mean the baby must have a kind of visa? If it is , then the baby must have a passport from the country of his parents and must apply for a visa to stay at least one year in the spain, is my undrestanding right or not?

Regards,
Amir

Dear Forum users,

Me myself am a Dutch 21 year man, living in Spain, within other people there house.
I moved to spain one year ago, and met a beautifull girl here of 19 years of age,
After moving in with eachother, she turned out to be pregnant, and sorting out a abortion didn't seem so easy in Spain.
Now were are almost trough the pregnancy, but seriously we have not been able to settle anything.
She herself is a british citizen, and she is not here longer then ten years so she doesnt have the right on a spanish nationality..

The baby (Girl BTW) Is going to be due in August, and we don't know anything to sort out right now,
Weve lost our old house together, and are basiclly living on the streets at this point, Although we managed to move in with a aqquintance of my Girlfriend, he is already 70 years by age, and cannot have US with a baby living with him obviously.
My pure question is: what are the social benefits (if there are in our case) We should be able to sort out?
And i do not have my N I E sorted out yet, so basiclly that would mean i wouldnt be able to register the baby,
Also with is a problem, that we do both have padrons , but no SIP...
In Holland where i come from ( but not can go back to) There are options of for example salvation army, or other instantions that are willing to help in these kind of situations...

I am willing to do anything to just sustain a stable, loving home for the baby AND mum,
But right now i feel pushed with my back against the wall,,
Weve been to ayuntamiento, weve visited www.Mjustica.es, we've spoken to advisors, policeman, translators, and and even some justice advisors,... But yet no one said they could help us one step further... Why?

I do not have a Job, i live on a income that still comes from holland,
BUT i will not be able to FIND myself a Job WITHOUT an N.I.E...
And to sort myself out with a house, i need a job contract to show i am able to pay for the bills..



Can someone please advice me, or tell me what me and my girlfriend should do...

Were from provence Alicante - Catral, and so it's their justice system we have to go alongside with..

upfront i want to thank the people who at least took the effort to think along with our'e problems..


So HErebye, Thankyou from the bottoms of our'e hearts...

Hello

My child will be born here in Spain - I am British, and my husband is Italian. We both are registered here.

Does this mean that after 1 year my child will be able to apply for a Spanish passport? If we apply for a British passport just after the birth, will this mean she will need to renounce it in order to get a Spanish passport when she is 1 year old?

Thanks!
