The NIE (“Número de Identificación de Extranjeros“) is the Foreigner’s Identity Number that the Spanish Police grants to foreigners in Spain.
This number has different purposes, but it is mostly a tax or fiscal number, that you will need for buying a property or a vehicle, paying taxes and, in general, to identify yourself before the Spanish authorities and public bodies: Tax Office, Town Hall, Traffic Department, Land Registry, etc.
Our fees for applying for 1 NIE are 250,00 + IVA (302,50 Euros). In case of a couple, and as long as we can apply for both of them at the same time, our fees would be 350,00+ IVA in total (423,50)
We will need you to sign a Power of Attorney before a Notary, to enable us to do this on your behalf, avoiding the hassle of having to attend to the Police Station in person. We could organise this to be executed in a Notary very close to our office in Fuengirola, and will act as interpreter without any charge. The Notary fees for this would be approx 80,00 Euros.
There is also a tax of 9,74 Euros for each application.
So you can expect a total cost of approx. 395 Euros for one NIE, all inclusive.
If you are not in Spain, we can help you to execute the Power of Attorney before a Notary in your Country, providing you with a draft in a bilingual format (English/Spanish) that you can use with the local Notary of your election, without any extra cost..
If you were already assigned a NIE but your NIE Certificate has expired (during some time these certificates were issued with an expiration date) or you have lost your certificate, the procedure to obtain a new one is exactly the same as described above for a new one, with the only difference that the tax is 7,24 Euros instead of 9,74.

Important Note: If you stay more than 3 months in Spain, you must apply for a Registration Certificate as an EU Resident (“Certificado de Registro de Ciudadano de la Unión Europea” in Spanish). If you are British, you need to apply for the T.I.E.
