VENEZOLANS MAY PROCESS AUTHORIZATIONS AND RESIDENCE AND NATIONALITY PERMISSIONS IN SPAIN WITH THE
Spain will accept the expired passports of Venezuelan nationals so that they can process authorizations and permits provided for in the law of aliens, as well as the issuance and delivery of the foreigner’s identity card.
THIS IS RECORDED IN AN INSTRUCTION THAT WAS APPROVED ON MARCH 15, 2019.
The instruction specifically refers to the impossibility currently faced by Venezuelan nationals to access these procedures because they cannot renew their passport, once their validity has expired, through the services consular services in Spain. This, as the instruction details, “would require them to have to go back to their country and, once there, proceed to their renewal.”
Against this backdrop, taking into account UNHCR’s recommendation, it urged states to guarantee Venezuelans the mechanisms of labour migration mechanisms so that they are not forced to return to Venezuela.
These arguments give the instruction, after which all passports that are not in force will be accepted when the foreign proceedings are requested in favour of Venezuelan nationals.
Thus, the criterion maintained to date is changed, since the Spanish alien law requires, among the various documents to be provided, the passport as a form of personal identification and, in some cases, it must be in force and, in certain cases, it is requires a minimum validity.
