Nationality is the legal bond between the person with the condition and has the dual role of being a fundamental right and establish the legal status of persons. For this relationship, the individual enjoys rights that may require the state organization to which it belongs and, in return, can impose compliance with a series of obligations and duties.

Spanish nationality is acquired, retained and lost in accordance with the provisions of the law.

One way of obtaining citizenship is residence, which requires the person’s residence in Spain for ten years of legal, continuous and immediately prior to the application form. There are cases in which a period of residence is reduced; these are:

Five years: to grant Spanish citizenship to those who have obtained refugee status
