Guide to the NIE number in Spain

The NIE (Número de Identificación de Extranjero) is the identification number in Spain for everyone who is not a Spanish citizen. Both EU citizens and non-EU citizens get issued a NIE. The NIE is not a fiscal residency identification; you can have a NIE and be fiscal resident in another country.

How do I get my NIE number in Spain

Follow these steps to obtain a NIE number:

Fill out the NIE application form (EX-15), and print. You can also obtain this form at any NIE office. You must fill out the form in Spanish, but for help in filling out this form, see the English version and French version, or our filled out version. The marital status abbreviations are single/Married/Widowed/Divorced/Separated (in that order).

If you're in Spain, go to the police station or Oficina de Extranjeros. Outside of Spain, go to the nearest Spanish Consulate (the "Consulate dept legalizaciones", not the Embassy).

You must bring:

  • The filled-out form
  • A copy of your passport (all pages)
  • A passport photo
  • Approx. 9.64€ to pay Tax Form 790. 

Note: The Spanish government revised the NIE application process in April, 2012.
