The Spanish Consulate in Cuba receives an avalanche of nationality requests

The Consulate General of Spain in Havana is already receiving appointment requests to process applications for nationality under the new Democratic Memory Law (LMD). They will attend to this procedure from November 21, as reported by the diplomatic headquarters on their networks on Thursday night.

Right there, they attach a link with the procedure for obtaining that appointment, which includes collecting all the necessary documentation according to the assumption that the applicant can take advantage of and sending it by email to the address [email protected].

In the subject, applicants must put “LMD appointments”, and in the body of the email, their personal data as follows: name, first surname, second surname, identity card number, without accents, spaces or any other special character. In addition, they must attach a photo with their card visible in hand.

If everything is in order, the applicant will receive a response from the same address with a username and password to enter another page where they can actually select the date of the appointment.

“We have a very high number of applicants, which causes longer response times”

The Consulate asks not to book the appointment if all the documents are not available and to send a single email. If they receive several messages from the same account, they warn, they can block it. If once they receive the appointment, they require additional documentation from the applicant, they will only have 30 days to deliver it, they report; if this deadline is missed, the application will be denied.

Although the announcement was only a few hours old, and even the instructions page gave an error for a long time this Thursday, the automatic response from the Consulate address included this warning, in capital letters: “We have a very high number of applicants, which causes longer response times. It may take up to a month for you to receive your credentials.”

This Friday, the Embassy of Spain communicated via Twitter that the appointments will be processed in the Consular Civil Registry, located in the Lonja del Comercio, in Old Havana. At the headquarters on Zulueta street corner to Cárcel, this same day people gathered for various procedures.

Although none was there for the LMD, but rather to resolve other matters, some lamented the bureaucratic difficulties in getting an audience at the consular office. “From here the page to make an appointment did not work for me, but I resolved it with a person who offered me that service.” For this, a free procedure by law, charged him 600 dollars.
