Default Dual nationality

Morning ex- pats Do Spain accept dual nationality? my daughter was born in Spain, and has lived in Spain for 17 years, has a permenant residency certificate but has British citizenship can she apply for Dual nationality in Spain, OR will she need to apply through UK. She will be 18 next year and can then get a 10 year passport.
I don't think there's any real advantages to having dual but I know she'll more then likely want to, I don't want her to give up her British nationality though either. Any answers appreciated

Spain doesnt accept dual nationality, but I dont think they actually demand that you hand over your British passport, either, if you get my drift..........

It's my understanding that Spain does not accept/allow/comprehend dual nationality.

To that end, if someone wished to become a Spanish national (for work, for example), then they would have to renounce any other nationality.

There is no dual nationality treaty between UK and Spain but this doesn't mean you can't have both nationalities. It just means that each country only recognises their own nationality. My children were born here and their dad is Spanish but when they were born I registered their births at the British Embassy and later applied for a British passport. Here thay have Spanish DNI cards.

If your daughter was born in Spain and her birth was registered here, why don't you go to the Registro Civil where her birth was registered and ask for a birth certificate for the purpose of obtaining a DNI? They issue a special birth certificate for this purpose, if they issue it, you just have to take it to the National police with two photos and get it. If they say she can't have one, i.e. is not entitled to Spanish nationality, ask for the requirements for obtaining this.
