    Post Tarjeta Comunitaria - Nacionalidad Espaņola

    Hi Team,

    I am originally from the USA. I am living in Spain for last almost 7 years. My father has received the Spanish nationality and since I was dependent on him, I received the Tarjeta Communitaria (Regimen Communitario) con character Permanente.

    Background: Originally I came to Spain when I was 17 years old. Before having Tarjeta Communitaria, I had Tarjeta Residencia Larga Duracion. I am 24 years Old now.

    My question is - Does having this new card (Tarjeta Communitaria) gives me any benefit in terms of applying for the Spanish nationality? I know that in general, one has to wait 10 years before he or she can apply for the Spanish nationality. But in my case, since my father is Spanish now, and I have this new car, Does this make any difference? Or would I still have to wait for another 3 years before applying for the Spanish nationality?

    Thanks for your help!
    Alex

    Hello Alex

    As you are already over 18 and not dependent on your father, you no longer meet the requirements for Spanish Nationality by option rout. Also if I understood it correctly, your father accessed Spanish Nationality by Residency and not as being Spanish by Origins. This means you need to wait to complete 10 years of legal residence status in Spain before applying for the Spanish Nationality. Holding a regimen comunitario residency status has no effect on the Spanish Nationality eligibility.

    I trust this answer has been of help.

    Hello Amir

    Arraigo Familiar is only applicable to children of Spanish citizens, providing the parent is originally Spanish. That is, your father would have accessed the Spanish citizenship based on Spanish ancestry and not by means of residency.
