Spanish nationality applies to members of the national Spanish community. There are different types of Spanish nationality acquisition forms collected by our legal system.
The following are conisiderd to be Spanish nationals according to the Spanish law:
- Children born either inside or outside of Spain to a Spanish mother or father.
- Children born in Spain to foreign parents but with at least one parent born in Spain.
- Children born to foreign parents who lack Spanish nationality or applicable legislation that attributes the child´s nationality to that of their own. (This is to avoid statelessness.)
- Abandoned children, or those whose parentage has not been determined. In these cases we must add the acquisition of Spanish nationality by adoption.
