NIE applications

The NIE (“Número de Identificación de Extranjeros“) is the Foreigner’s Identity Number that the Spanish Police grants to foreigners in Spain.

Primarily serving as a tax or fiscal identification, this number is essential for various transactions such as property or vehicle purchases, inheritance procedures, tax payments, and general interactions with Spanish authorities and public institutions like the Tax Office, Town Hall, Traffic Department, Land Registry, and others.

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 90,00 Euros.

There is also a tax of 9,84 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 (except the Notary fees).

If you were previously issued a NIE, but your NIE Certificate has expired (as some certificates were issued with expiration dates) or if it has been lost, the process to obtain a new one remains identical to the procedure described above for obtaining a new NIE.

Important Note: If you are a national of an EU country and 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).
