I know the Spanish Legion stopped accepting non-citizen foreigners in 1987. But in this decade they have begun to accept, along with the rest of the Spanish army, recruits with citizenship in Latin American countries, and even foreigners who have acquired Spanish residency status, which is not extremely difficult to acquire. I have dual Costa Rican/American citizenship, this is why the Spanish legion is attractive to me, as there is no language barrier for me.
I heard the Spanish Legion is more brutal than the FFL. The lifestyle is said to be harder. The pay is said to be worse than the FFL's pay?
