NIE stands for Numero de Identificacion de Extranjerosor Foreigners Identity Number.


As a resident you need this number for the purpose of paying taxes. As a non-resident you need this number if you wish to buy anything of value – a property or a car for example.


It has got a little more complicated to apply for the NIE. Firstly you must request online an appointment at a designated Police Station and you will be given a date to return to hand in the application form along with a photocopy of your passport and a passport-sized photograph of yourself. Sometimes, this date is a few months away.
Naturally, as part of our service to the buyer we assist you in applying for the NIE.
