Any foreigner wishing to carry out activities in Spain, either for social, professional or economic interests, must have, for identification purposes, a personal, unique and exclusive number. This number is known as a Foreigner Identification Number, or more commonly, N.I.E.
This number will identify the foreign individual, as does the ID (DNI) for citizens of Spanish nationality, and must appear on all documents.
This NIE number, whatever the main reason of request is, can be inquired in different ways; either in Spanish territory by the same applicant, through a representative or before a Spanish consulate located in the country of residence of the applicant.
Not to be confused, despite being a very common matter, a NIE number, which must be given in a DIN A-4 document; with a certificate of citizenship of the European Union or a residence permit for non-EU citizens.
If you are from abroad and want to make some kind of management in Spain, either purchase a property, open a bank account, hire a health insurance, or any other procedure, contact professionals DAEMI ZABALZA & ASSOCIATES, who will obtain this number in your name, simplifying this task for you.
