Fiscal Identification Number for Foreigners (N.I.E.)

Foreigners that, due to their financial, professional or social interests, are related to Spain, shall have for their identification, a personal, unique and exclusive number, of sequential character.

The afore mentioned number shall be used to identify the foreigner, and should figure on every document that is issued to the person, such as diligences that are stamped on the passport or analogue document.

This number issued automatically by the General Police Direction, shall not habilitate the person to reside in Spain, but shall be necessary in order to put in to effect any transaction in Spain, this being, purchase of cars, property, open a bank account, establish a company, payment of taxes, etc...
