    Hi Sezy,

    Your child will be able to opt for Spanish Citizenship after having resided legally in Spain for one year. In order obtain his parent's nationalities, you must register your son at the corresponding Consulate in Spain. This would the Moroccan or the British Consulates.

    Hi Sezy,

    I am afraid so. A child born in Spain is not granted Spanish citizenship automatically.
