NIE clearance in Spain
Surely many of you have heard for the NIE, but few know for decoding and why. In this article we will try to explain all the nuances and course of action for obtaining this document.
NIE (NIE) – is the identification number of the alien, assigned to a citizen for his identification in the tax service.
And he needed to carry out the following operations:
– opening an account in banks;
– obtaining a mortgage;
– purchases, sales of real estate;
– payment of taxes;
– the procedure of registration of real estate;
– property insurance.
The NIE confirms the identity of the alien and will be indicated in all documents. The number is a specific set of letters and numbers, of which 2 letters at the beginning and end, and between them 7 numbers. If you have a residence permit, the number will be indicated on the front of the resident card in the bottom left corner. Otherwise, the number is issued on the certificate of the established sample.
And the process of obtaining is not difficult, it can be received personally, and by proxy to another person. It is possible to apply for NIE registration, as well as in the Spanish Consulate in your country of residence, and in special offices of migration authorities, your legal stay in Spain is the only prerequisite. It is also necessary to remember that when you make a NIE in Spain, you will have to come in the morning, because applications are accepted only before lunch, but you do not need to take a turn in advance, you only need to come with a package of necessary documents. But not in the consulate of Spain, it is better to be safe here and set a reception time for a few days. When submitting documents, you must provide a reasonable reason why you need an identification number.
The procedure for reviewing documents at the Spanish Consulate lasts up to 5 days, from the moment they are filed, in some cases it can last up to a week.
In order to apply for registration, you will need to assemble a package of documents mentioned above, specifically:
– a preliminary agreement, for example, on the purchase of real estate as an official proof of your need to obtain NIE;
– completed application form EX-15;
– international passport with basic photocopies;
– A check with the payment of state duty, amounting to about 10 euros.
It should be said that NIE is valid for three months, after which you need to re-send the request, which will be updated to the number you have already assigned. Yes, and in the case of updating the list of documents remains unchanged, but the only thing that will need to add is a copy of the old certificate.
