Application for the Foreigner Identity Number (NIE) and other immigration procedures

Some of the most common reasons for requesting it can be the signing of any corporate or real estate investment transaction before a notary, opening a bank account, buying a vehicle or legally obtaining a job (in the case of community members).

This personal number will be the identifier of the foreign person, which must appear on all the documents that are issued or processed, as well as the procedures that are stamped on their identity card or passport. Foreigners can request the NIE from the General Directorate of the Police, directly or through the Consular Offices of Spain abroad, personally or through a representative.

This procedure becomes a slow process due to the difficulty of obtaining appointments to request said document from the police. For this reason, having the services of a specialized agency in immigration matters allows expediting and successfully carrying out this management.
