Service Details

NIE Application

This service is available across Spain

Who Is This Service For?

  • Anyone who wishes to carry out any one of many transactions in Spain will likely need to obtain a Spanish NIE number
  • For example, if you wish to rent, buy or inherit a property in Spain will need to arrange an NIE (Número Identidad Extranjero – Foreigner’s Identity Number). 
  • An NIE will also be necessary for arranging many personal activities such as arranging utilities, getting a mobile phone, registering with local authorities or health-centres etc 
  • While the NIE number is the same number as that which appears on a TIE (foreigner's identity card), the NIE is merely a fiscal number, and it should not be confused with a right to residency. An NIE can be arranged on your behalf by a legal representative appropriately empowered via a power of attorney.
