We have published a Practical Guide with the keys to processing residence and work permits for minors under guardianship and young migrants who were formerly under guardianship.

The reform of the Immigration Regulation of November 2021, with the entry into effect of Royal Decree 903/2021, has marked a turning point in the legal regulation of young people migrant alone to Spain. The previous regulations set out requirements that most young people were not able to meet, having to face numerous obstacles that prevented them from continuing with their future plans and achieving their dreams. Instead, we now have more flexible regulatory framework that is better adapted to the particularities of unaccompanied migrant minors and young people in detention. 

With the publication of this guide we seek to offer to all the people who work on a daily basis with children and youth migrant and the young foreigners themselves some keys so that they can carry out the necessary procedures to maintain of obtain a residence and work authorization that will help them on their way to autonomy and social and labor insertion. It includes the aspects to be taken into account from their arrival in Spanish territory for their regularization once they reach the age of majority, as well as the renewal of these authorizations. 

We seek to provide a practical approach, sharing the steps to follow and the necessary documentation to present to prevent these young people from falling into a situation of supervening irregularity, and to participate in the promotion of good practices that lighten the bureaucratic processes and focus on what is most important: the accompaniment and inclusion of all young people who are in Spain.
