Frequently Asked Questions

It can prove very difficult to get a NIE number in Spain for several reasons. The website where individuals book their appointment is all in Spanish, so if you do not speak the language this can prove difficult. Only a few appointments become available online every day, and they go very quickly. All of the paperwork is also in Spanish. Furthermore, in most areas of Spain you will not be able to find a person who speaks English in the Police Station when you go for your appointment.

For these reasons, clients choose to use our services to get an NIE number.

If you would like us to complete the entire process of obtaining your NIE number for you, we will need a notarised power of attorney document and certified copy of your passport. Document evidence of why you need a NIE number might also be required. These documents can include private property purchase agreement, a job contract or a letter from a mortgage company.

If you are moving to Spain, you will need a NIE number to do just about everything.
