Jenni Posted January 28 Share Posted January 28 After 7.5 years of being a permanent resident in Spain, I'm aiming to get my Spanish citizenship after a total of 10 years of residency. I am currently considering an extended trip to Thailand, ranging from three to twelve months. To the best of my knowledge, obtaining citizenship in Spain requires 10 years of uninterrupted residence. From my understanding, that entails being in Spain for at least three months over a six-month period. However, I plan to keep paying my social security and autonomo fee while I'm away (I work online). Will the government know that I am not physically in Spain even though I'm still paying taxes? Is it matter for getting my citizenship? I'd appreciate any advice you may have! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
