My son was born in Majorca 21 years ago. Does this mean I have the right to live in Spain? We currently live in the UK. I am British.

No because being born in Spain does not automatically confer Spanish citizenship. It would depend on the nationality of the parents.

Have a look on Citizens advice bureau & send them a message. I'm not sure but I think he can apply for nationality in Spain. Best of luck.

That wasn't the question. The question was could his parents have the right to live in Spain.

I'm 99% sure your son can live legally here as a Spanish citizen.

You don't have that right. You will have to apply for a residency status.

Shouldn't be a problem though.
