The following information was received from an official with the Embassy of Spain in Ottawa on 19 September 1991.

 Those who apply for refugee status in Spain can list relatives on their application forms. Once granted status, those relatives are then entitled to live in Spain as well. Certain events during the course of the refugee dertermination process could change this. For instance, if an applicant and his or her spouse divorce, then the latter would not have an immediate right to live in Spain once the applicant receives status.
