I don't think so, but if you do some digging around on the internet you might be able to come up with the citizenship requirements for spain and who knows, you might be surprised! I've looked into getting dual citizenship from Norway or Sweden but so far nothing has come of it.

good luck! That would be totally cool!

I am 100% brazilian, but my great great grandparents are from Portugal. I really didn`t know it until 2 years ago when someone decided to write a book with my family`s story (the story of Nogueira`s family ) and I got shocked when I saw my name there and found out I had family in Portugal! But I know I can`t get my Portuguese citzen... Only if my parents or grandparents were Portuguese. Maybe It`s the same in Spain... I`m not sure.

like the irish say, Fook. 35 hour work weeks, 2 hour lunches (siestas), 4 week vacation every year, architecture, turbulent history, great food, art, live life like its meant to be lived, the ladies hehe, im jealous, oh to dream. lets start a revolution maybe we can get them to loosen up the laws a little bit grrrr. its wierd to me that both spain and portugal border each other and are different in so many ways. if youre in western europe you can travel just 100 miles and be shocked by a different language, culture, food, etc. i am 100% Mexican and very proud of my spanish heritage. Bgirl, it shows some guts to post your last name on a forum on the net. anyhow, here is a question for the proud and the brave. what is your last name?

One of my ancestors was a French dude who moved from France to Mexico to open up a store, and ended up being contracted by the US government to steal horses from the nearby ranches and supply them to the US military during the Mexican American War. He was caught and thrown into a Mexican jail, but eventually was able to move to the US. I like to think that he wasn't so much a horse theif for hire as he was an American patriot before even becoming a citizen. My great grandparents came from Denmark, but I doubt that holds any sway as far as getting Danish citizenship goes.

I think you can only go back as far a you parents or grandparents, if the rules are anything like Canada.

My Grandmother was born in Newfoundland, and Newfoundland became the tenth province of Canada on March 31, 1949. Before that it was a British Colony.
My sister tried to get her British passport that way to be with her husband (Boyfriend then) but no luck.

Still may be worth looking into though! Contact the embassy to find out for sure!
