Obtaining your NIE or Residencia
An NIE (Numero Identidad Extranjeros) is a Spanish tax identification number assigned by the National Police to all foreigners with fiscal obligations. It is a legal requirement prior to working in Spain, opening a bank account, purchasing a property, obtaining a mortgage, etc.
It is a very important step forward, so being your representatives in Spain, this is one of the first things that we have to take care of.
The procedure to apply for your NIE without speaking the language can be difficult and stressful. To begin with, it is very important that we have all the documents and information required by the authorities, as well as filling out the complex application forms and paying the government fees. We can either accompany you to the appointment or we can apply for your NIE number on your behalf using Power of Attorney as your legal representatives.
The NIE document itself is issued on a standard A4 page, with the recipient’s full name, their place of birth, their nationality, and the number itself, along with a stamp and signature provided by the National Police.
