Post Marriage..........

I have lived in Spain for 14 years and I am about to marry my fiance....not in Spain but in Gibraltar.......... she is not British or Spanish but she emirates from Malaysia..... we met in California ...she is a heart transplant coordinator........

She has obtained visas for Spain and a short term visa for Gibraltar.....what I want to know is, once we are married.....will she be able to live with me permanently in Spain and what have I to do to as far as reporting the wedding to Spanish authorities to void her visa so that she can remain in Spain and make everything legal............. I live in Mazarron, Murcia.......

The marriage will be registered in Gibraltar under British law..........................

I assume you are British?
What nationality is she now?
She will need to apply for a British passport. She is not automatically granted citizenship on marriage to a British citizen.

She has two passports.....one Malaysian and one Peruvian.....She has let het Malay passport expire so will be using her Peruvian passport.....I am British and will marry in Gibraltar under British law.....the registration of the marriage will be in Gib.Because I have lived in Spain for over ten years, she could once married apply for Spanish citizenship and passport provided she can pass the strict exam....but unfortunately, she cannot speak fluent Spanish which is one of the requisites........ there must be a way other than that to be able to remain in Spain,..........................

AFIK, if she is not an EU citizen she must have a visa to remain in Spain.


I would suggest you contact the Consulate

She can apply for residency as the wife of an EU citizen. You will need to have your residencia and you will need to be able show that you have the means to support yourselves and have health insurance etc.
