What are the requirements for the EU Family Permit ?
Who is considered a family member of an EU citizen?
For the purposes of obtaining an EU family permit in Spain, the family members of Spaniards or EU citizens are:
- Current spouses or registered domestic partners (unless separated) who are economically dependent on the EU citizen spouse;
- Your dependent minor children (yours or those of your spouse or registered domestic partner);
- Dependent parents (yours or those of your spouse or registered domestic partner).
The Spanish or EU citizen family member you’re basing your application on must meet some financial criteria and provide documentation.
If a marriage certificate is used as proof of family relationship, the Spanish authorities may insist that it is only valid if issued within the last 90 days. If the applicant’s marriage certificate is older, it may be possible for them to confirm its validity via the embassy or consulate of the issuing country.
The permit is good for up to five years. If after that time you still live in Spain with your family member, you can get another one or opt for permanent residence.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS TO GET THE EU FAMILY PERMIT ?
Application should be made for a EU Family Permit (Tarjeta de residencia de familiar de ciudadano de la Unión) within 3 months of arrival at the Foreigner’s Office (Oficina de Extranjeros) or local police station in the province of intended residence.

In accordance with EU law, you should get your residence card within six months from the day you turn in all your paperwork, but you must make an appointment to do so. Depending on the region and how busy they are, the next available appointment may be a few days or a few months in the future.
