    Puerto Rican Citizenship info and other

    I been doing research on this matter cause I would like to live in Spain. I was Born in Puerto Rico and currently reside in Mass, USA. The Puerto Rican citizenship certificate is what you will need you have to apply thru the Department of state of PR.
    you will need the following:
    FORM: (cant find it just google it "Puerto Rico CPR001" or "departamento de estado Cpr001").
    Spain actually sees it as a legit document.

    Also call consulate and ask for more information.

    In the event you have a Latin American nationality, you can access dual citizenship after two years´ residency in Spain ( holding a residence permit).

    You indicate you were born in Puerto Rico, but not whether that´s your nationality. It is essential to clarify that fact.

    Hello Anna

    You will only be entitled to request Spanish citizenship after two years of legal residency in Spain, if you previously hold nationality from a Latin American country. Either PUerto Rico or Dominican Republic. Also note that dual nationality between the US and Spain is not allowed.

    Born in Puerto Rico, Dominican Parents


    I was born in Puerto Rico but my parents are from the Dominican Republic. I have US citizenship, but would like Spanish citizenship too. If I get a job teaching English in Spain for two years, can I then apply for dual nationality (US and Spain)? Thanks!

    Hello someoneusa,

    All initial residence permit applications must be applied for via the corresponding Spanish Embassy or Consular Office at your country of legal residence; this means that you would have to go back to the USA to file your residence application form, no matter if Non Lucrative, Salaried work and residence permit or as a self employed individual. It is not possible to apply from Spain while on a valid tourist visa; even less if the visa is expired.

    The only way to apply from Spain is, in the event you remained in Spain for 3 years in an irregular situation, filing an exceptional circumstances residence permit application, by Settlement.

    Hi Patricia-
    I'm Puerto Rican and am trying to move to Spain. I'm looking for information
    and came across your post.

    Can you offer any advice regarding this? Can I just settle in Spain with my
    tourist visa or do I need to do something at home first? I'm in Europe right
    now and wasn't planning on going back to US. I appreciate any info as I'm
    having problems locating info online.

    Thanks so much!
