Hello to Spain. I am an American with rights to obtain dual citizenship with Spain and get a Spanish passport. I have written the Justice Dept in Spain but I have yet to receive any answers. Can anyone tell me how to apply in English for a passport? Thanks.

Foreign nationals that acquire the Spanish nationality lose their previous nationality, unless they were natural born citizens of an Iberoamerican country, Andorra, the Philippines, Equatorial Guinea or Portugal, which are considered as Spanish Communities outside Spain and part of the original territory of the Spanish State in the 1812 constitution.Of course you can simply retain your previous passport/nationality,but as far as Spain is concerned you are solely Spanish.There are tens of thousands of North Africans who have obtained Spanish passports but still retain their passport of country of birth.

hannahlma posted Juvenile unemployment in Spain on the Spain forum on April 12, 2014:
Hello everyone :) I come from Denmark and I'm doing a project about the situation in Spain. I'm focusing on the juvenile unemployment but also religion. I would be very happy if you would answer these questions and therefore help me with my project. Thank you!! :) How old are you? Are you religious? If not: what is your opinion about religions? Have you ever thought of being a part of a religion? What about your family? Are they religious? How many of the young in Spain do you think are religious? Has the youngster’s opinion on religion changed compared to 50 years ago or maybe 100 years ago? Social studies. Do you have a job? Have you heard about the financial problems in Spain? Many young in Spain have problems finding a job, once they have an education. Have you had any trouble finding a job? Do you have any idea of how to prevent juvenile unemployment? What is your opinion to the European Union?

Hey all, what are some options for a place to live in Spain the coast would be great but I would have a limited fixed income to live on until i can get residence. I also have a medical condition with my right knee now due to accident two years ago and a dry warm climate could work wonders. Any recommendations on affordable places i should look into?
sdamazo replied on April 07, 2014 with:
Hi, Murcia is a great place to live and you can find very good properties with low prices either for rent or buy. I traveled widely in Spain looking for the best place and missed this side of the country at the time. I just found out when came to Valencia end of year and it is different from other parts. Can send you links I got from one of the places found /r/ Shirley

Hi, I understand your concern but did you read the link from US consulate in Barcelona? It doesn't say that you have to give up one of them.

While waiting to board my flight at Malaga airport recently, I was approached by an English lady and asked to complete a questionnaire.Some kind of prize draw was involved,the company logo on her t-shirt said something or other "resorts" I think,and the only stipulation was that I was resident in the UK.Does anyone know the name of the company which runs the questionnaire and/or anything about them? No complaints at all about them,I just need to contact the individual concerned,I had the details and promptly lost them! Thanks!!

christine2 replied to the thread Anyone living in Gandia or thereabouts? on the Spain forum:
Teacher22 initially posted:
I am thinking of going to Spain, Gandia. In order to become a resident I understand that you need the NIE, what about the empadronizamiento? Do you have to do that? In order to do anything from renting to buying a car or looking for a job, do you need to be a resident? Can anyone give me the procedure? What happens if you decide to move cities after you have registered in one? Anyone wanting to rent out a property in Gandia, please let me know. PM me, also, I am looking for work there. Does anyone have the names of language schools? Thank you
christine2 replied most recently with:
Hello, I just thought of a site called Spainwise.net they have info and usually listing of schools looking for teachers. Good luck!
christine2 replied most recently with:
Your welcome. I say October and February are when a lot of language schools get busy at least where I was in Malaga. I say go in person with you CV and shop around-make connections. Your a native English speaker fluent in French and Spanish as well as a EU Citizen... I say go for it!

army45 replied to the thread Healthcare in Spain on the Spain forum:
Teacher22 initially posted:
I understand that if you have paid enough NI contributions in the UK, and if you are a pensioner, and if you are working, you can have access to the Spanish healthcare. If you don't fall into any of these three categories, do you have to have private medical insurance? What happens if whilst you are looking for a job you become ill, being a resident without a job, and not old enough to be a pensioner, what happens? What if you can't find a job? I read somewhere that if you are a resident and have less than 100,000, you can access the health care? Could anyone explain to me how it works please. Thank you
