do you know if I can apply for citizenship as soon as I am married? Or do I first have to obtain the permanent residency and then apply for citizenship?
If the court insists that you have a DNI, I believe you would first have to obtain the permanent residency...

Ok thank you! But the permanent residency should be just a matter of a couple of months no? So I should be able to apply for the citizenship three months after the marriage in any case, right?

Hi again,

Thank you in advance!

This page says 2 years residency requirement does not apply if you are getting citizenship by marriage. It does not say that there is any residency requirement in this case.

My understanding is that you apply for citizenship first, then you receive "Carta de Ciudadania"/Naturalization Certificate, then you apply for DNI.
