LEY DE NIETOS – GRANDCHILDREN LAW
This new law allows children and grandchildren of Spaniards to obtain Spanish nationality directly, without the need to live in Spain for any minimum period of time!
The new Ley de Nietos or Grandchildren law effectively expands the list of relatives eligible for Spanish citizenship by descent, meaning that now the children and grandchildren of ancestors who lost or renounced their citizenship will be able to obtain Spanish nationality.
