General information about the NIE number in Spain:

The NIE number in Spain (Número de Identificación de Extranjero) is  the identification number for everyone who is not a Spanish citizen.

The NIE Number is issued by the National Police of Spain and in accordance to Spanish law is required for the purchase or sale of any real estate property, vehicle, to register a company Spain. There are many other transactions that require the parties involved to possess an NIE Number. The NIE is not a fiscal residency identification; you can have a NIE number and be fiscal resident in another country.

The non-resident NIE  is issued on a standard A4 page, with the recipients full name (as written on the passport used during the application process), their place of birth, their nationality, and the number itself, along with a stamp and signature provided by the National Police.


Required documents:

– The oficial NIE application form

– Passport and the copy of all pages in case of  Non-EU citizens

– Documents certifying the reason for applying for a NIE  (the documents you will need to prepare depend on the type of the NIE  you wish to apply for: Resident or Non-resident)
