DELE is now for native Spanish speakers too.

Since November 7, any person, without criteria, could choose to take any level of the DELE exam anywhere in the world where there is a recognized DELE exam center.

The scope of the DELE regulated by Royal Decree 1004/2015 of November 6 (http://www.boe.es/boe/dias/2015/11/07/pdfs/BOE-A-2015-12047.pdf) has been universally increased. The Royal Decree states:

“Diplomas of Spanish as a foreign language (DELE) can be obtained by candidates who have passed the tests included in the established exam.”

This specifically modifies article 2 (“Scope”) of the Royal Decree 1137/2002 of October 31, which regulates DELE diplomas.

This change has significant consequences on an administrative level among other things: the declaración jurada E/L2 (sworn statement E/L2) has disappeared now that a national of any country where Spanish is the official language can also take the exam to obtain the DELE at any level if he or she so chooses.
