Spanish nationality for descendants of Sephardic Jews

Spanish nationality for descendants of Sephardic Jews

The possibility to get Spanish nationality for descendants of Jewish Sephardic which may obtain them by showing that they are descendants of the Jews expelled by the Catholic Monarchs in the year 1450 has recently been approved.

Last Friday, February 7, 2014 the Mariano Rajoy Council of Ministers approved a proposal from the Minister of Justice, A draft law whereby article 23 of the Civil Code is amended Spanish to expedite the procedure for granting of Spanish nationality for descendants of Jewish Sephardic wishing to do so, by Charter of nature even though they do not have legal residence in Spain.Spanish nationality for descendants of Sephardic Jews

The Minister of Justice, Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón announced that the new amendment to the legislation, which allowed already from more than one year ago that Sephardic Jews could obtain the Passport, soften the requirements for citizenship.

It also adds a very important clause, which in the past drove back thousands of Israelis who had requested it, to allow dual nationality. Now, any Sephardic Jew both Israel and any other country, can retain their previous nationality

Applicants must provide all the required documentation for processing the file:

-a certificate issued by the Secretary general of the Federation of Jewish communities of Spain crediting belonging to Jewish Sephardic.

– a certificate of Rabbinic authority competent.

– will also be valid accreditation of surnames, their family language or any other sign showing their membership to the Sephardic Jewish community.

-the inclusion of the applicant or his direct descent from a person included in the lists of Sephardic families protected by Spain, or bonding or kinship with these people or families.

The Jews of Sephardic origin who were expelled from Spain five centuries ago, spread by several countries of the Mediterranean such as Morocco, Turkey and Greece, even to other countries like Iraq or Syria.
