France & Spain agree to provide dual citizenship to each other’s country  


Citizens of Spain and France got the opportunity to acquire dual citizenship in each other’s countries, which means citizens of France of desire to attain second citizenship of Spain will soon be able to obtain it without losing their current citizenship. 

Simultaneously, Spanish people who aspire to acquire second citizenship of France without having to renounce Spanish citizenship will be able to qualify soon.   


The dual citizenship programme came into effect on April 1, 2022, and both governments signed the Agreement in March 2021. 

The Spanish government shared the information by issuing a press release that “France is the first country outside Latin America with which Spain has signed such an agreement.”  

The Spanish General Directorate of Legal Security and Public Faith, on March 3, 2021, shared the report with the Ministry of Justice that the Spanish government has established the criteria for a dual citizenship application for French Citizens, which has been publicized on the Official State Gazette of the country (BOE).      

The directives will affect all Spanish and French citizens who will henceforth acquire citizenship in another country and those who have had to renounce their previous Spanish or French citizenship to become citizens of France or Spain.

The latter can now apply to regain their previous citizenship and enjoy their dual nationality from when they apply for it.

The Instruction approves the application guidelines and registry procedures that allow the implementation of the nationality agreement between Spain and France, applicable in all Civil Registry Offices and Notaries that may be affected, both in Spanish territory and in Consular Offices,” the press release further explains.


Now, Spain’s current Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, José Manuel Albers, and the French Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian have welcomed the entry into force of the Spanish-French nationality agreement during a meeting. The eve of the third General Assembly of the Sahel Alliance was held in Madrid on Monday.
