Family Reunification

Family Reunification is a procedure that enables a foreign nation, for example a recognized refugee or a beneficiary of subsidiary protection to bring certain members of her/his family to Spain under certain conditions. Under Spanish law right to asylum or subsidiary protection covers the spouse or partner of any beneficiary of international protection, children under majority age and parents, providing the latter have proof of dependency and the same nationality. It may also be granted to other families where there is proof of dependency and previous co-habitation in their country of origin. Family unification applications are processed by the Immigration Department.
