Thread: Spanish Citizenship or Residance Permit for child born in Spain

  1. #61

    Default

    Hello RobParikh,

    The baby can get the Spanish Nationality as Colombia is not recognizing children born abroad to Colombian citizens, but the US does, so if you register his birth, the authorities may consider the child is an US citizen. Anyway, the Civil registry studies each case in particular and may as well grant the Spanish Nationality. It is worth a try.

    Regards,

    Hi Patricia,

    Thanks so much for your reply. BTW.. we are unwed so I'm not sure if that has an impact on registration. If possible, I would prefer to have the baby acquire Spanish nationality based on his Colombian mother but I would also like to confer him (already know the sex of the baby!) US Citizenship as well by registering him with a local consular office.

    Since we are unwed, can she simply claim him as her child so that Spanish nationality can be conferred to him automatically? And then later after this is completed, register his birth under my name and nationality as well?

    How long does it take from the point of birth to the point is receiving a Spanish Passport for the baby?

    Can we as parents subsequently be entitled to permanent residence in Spain? Subsequently, can my Colombian fiancee then apply on a fast track for Spanish citizenship? If so, how long does that take/

    Thanks so much for your assistance.

    BTW.. do you assist with all of the above if we need assistance with registrations etc. while in Spain?

    Hello Rob

    You may proceed how you mention and then see how it goes; as I mentioned, they study each particular case. I recommend to register his birth indicating the names of both his parents from the beginning.

    Regarding how ling it takes, I canīt quite a number; it depends in each CR.

    Any parent of a Spanish child can apply for a Family settlement residence permit. This procedure does not take long to be processed.

    Please feel free to contact us by email to discuss the case further and determine whether we can offer legal assistance.

    Hi Patricia,

    After reading so many answers to same questions I still have a doubt. My wife and I are Colombians-canadians I know in that case if a baby is born he will be automatically Canadian and he won’t be given the Spanish citizenship, given this 2 scenerios which will be best.

    1. We as a couple will be on a working holiday visa which is granted for only a year, if the baby is born during this time, will the working holiday visas be cancelled or the baby will be able to get legal residency during this time?

    2. We as a couple will be irregular living in Spain after having the baby which are the options to optain legal residency and give the baby that year of legal residence so he can apply for Spanish citizenship?

    Thanks!

    Question Spanish citizenship for child born in Spain recovery

    Dear Patricia, and to whom it may concern:

    My name is Cris:
    -I was born in Spain
    -I have my Spanish citizenship
    -my parents are not Spanish citizen
    -I have a Spanish ID but not a Spanish passport (my passport, not my ID, was taken from me when I traveled back to my parents country Lebanon, does it mean I lost my Spanish Citizenship?)
    -my age is 25 and I am currently in Lebanon for 24 years
    -I have all the necessary doc where I was born and lived in Spain

    Question is can I recover my Spanish citizenship if it is canceled, and do Spanish allow dual citizenship (Spanish and Lebanese) or do I have to discard my Lebanese passport or citizenship?

    best regards
    Cris

    Hello Cris,

    If you have been able to keep your Spanish ID ( and renew it ), thereīs no reason why you would be unable to apply for your Spanish passport. We would need to understand that bit of information where you mention the passport was taken from you. You may have lost your citizenship due to the lack of use of it, as you have lived 24 years out of 25 in Lebanon and not used your Spanish citizenship. Therefore, this is a question that has to be made to the Civil Registry so they check their records. There are situations that allow the applicant recover the Spanish nationality but that depends on the cause of the loss, and as we still donīt have this information, I canīt advise now.

    Dual citizenship is not allowed for Lebanese citizens. it is only allowed for nationals from Portugal, Navarra, Philippines, Equatorial Guinea, Latin American countries and basically Spanish former colonies.


    If you wish, drop us an email and explain your case in detail so we can advise further.
