Online consultation of Spanish citizenship by residence applications
What is it?
Online consultation of citizenship applications enables citizens to verify the processing status of their application to the Subdirectorate-General of National and Marital Status (Directorate General of Registers and the Notaries).
The Ministry of Justice offers Spanish citizenship by residence applicants the possibility of consulting, through its web page, the status of their applications being processed by the Subdirectorate-General of Nationality and Marital Status (Subdirección General de Nacionalidad y Estado Civil).
The data obtained through this system is merely for information purposes. It is an information channel that complements the Subdirectorate-General of Nationality and Marital Status' public advice service, which is provided in person or over the phone.
