The N.I.E (ID number for foreigners) is a personal, unique and exclusive sequential number granted by the immigration Office, for identification purposes. This number does not enable you to live in Spain, but it will be necessary for any financial transaction like buying a property, starting a business, buying a car, etc.
The N.I.E. can be obtained at the immigration Office in Spain, or at the Spanish Consulate in your country of residence. This procedure can be done personally or through a duly accredited representative, so if you wish Terrasun Group could get it on your behalf through a power of attorney.

- Application EX15 (Grupo Terrasun will help you filling in it)
- Original and copy of the whole passport
- 2 photos
- Proof of the economic, professional or social interests justifying the application.
