Passport multilaterals: Obtaining a Spanish passport through Latin America

How to get the citizenship of Spain in 2 years instead of 10 years?

There is a loophole: Spain allows dual citizenship for citizens of its former colonies in Latin America:

  • Chile
  • Argentine
  • Colombia
  • Peru
  • Paraguay
  • Nicaragua
  • Ecuador
  • Bolivia
  • Guatemala
  • Dominican Republic
  • Costa Rica

For citizens of these states the naturalization period in Spain is reduced to two years, and there is no need to surrender the previous passport. In Argentina and Paraguay - one of the kindest migration laws. You can get a passport after two years in Argentina and three years in Paraguay.

Then we go to Spain, live for two years, get a second citizenship of one of the most desirable countries to move to. That’s some simple math.
