NIE Number booking form Questions and Answers:
Q: Why do you need so many personal details for me to get my NIE Number/Social security Number?
A: The NIE Number paperwork we will fill out for you asks all the questions in our online form above. Once we have filled out your NIE Number forms (EX15 AND 790) your details are erased from our system normally within 24hrs. We take the security of your personal information seriously.
Q: I made a mistake when filling in the online NIE Number form, can you make changes after I have been sent my confirmation?
A: Please ensure the name on your Passport matches that on our Fast NIE Number booking form above. Please also double check your passport number as this is vitally important. Other details such as address, parents names, phone numbers can be changed at any time but your name and passport number must be correct. Your passport must have at least 6 months before it expires.
Q: Why have I got a strange email from the Spanish Police? I think its about my NIE Number appointment but Its all in Spanish and I cant read it.
A: While we are booking your appointment at the Police station to obtain your NIE Number the Spanish police will automatically send you an email confirming your appointment time and date. Keep this email aside, you will shortly receive an email from us in English explaining what you need to do next and what forms you need to print.
Q: I’m not in Spain yet, can you get my NIE Number appointment booked for when I arrive?
A: Yes, this is possible. We call this a Fly-In NIE Number appointment. There’s normally a short wait before your appointment date anyway but let us know the date you arrive in Spain and we will do our best to book you in after that date (pending appointments being available)
Q: Why do I need to give my Parents name for my NIE Number appointment??
A: The Spanish NIE Number forms require both your Mother and Fathers Name (please ensure you insert both first and surname, middle names are not required). Unfortunately there is no way around this. If you are unable to provide the names please contact us to discuss further.
Q: Why can I not book via the Telephone?
A: Currently we do not accept telephone bookings for NIE Number appointments. We prefer to use our Secure online NIE Number booking form so we make sure we have all the right details we need for booking your appointment with the CITA PRIVA and completing your paperwork.
Q: My passport still states my Married name, but I now use my Maiden name. Can I make my NIE Number application in my Maiden name?
A: You application MUST be in the name on your passport. The Spanish police will not accept any other names. If we submit forms in the incorrect name you will be refused a NIE Number.
Q: I don’t have a Spanish Address to use? What can I do?
A: The address section of our online NIE Number form should be an address in Spain. This does not have to be your home, many people use the address of a hotel or local café. If you do not have access to a Spanish address don’t worry leave this section blank and our advisors will sort this out for you. You can easily change the address once you have your NIE Number certificate.
Q: I don’t have a Spanish Telephone Number to use on my NIE Number application form. Can I use my UK mobile number?
A: Ideally a Spanish telephone number is required for your NIE Number application form. If you don’t have a number yet please feel free to use your UK telephone number.
Q: My Passport is about to expire. Can I still get my NIE Number?
A: We recommend you have at least 6 months remaining on your passport when you apply for a NIE Number. If you have less than 6 months until you need to renew your passport please contact us to discuss further. Click here to renew your British Passport.
Q: Can I get my Spanish Social Security Number before I have a NIE Number
A: You need to have your NIE Number certificate BEFORE you can collect a Spanish Social security Number. Once you have your NIE Number enter it into the blank section of the form we send you and take it to your Nearest Social security Office.
Q: A friend in an online forum is telling me I don’t need to book an appointment to get a NIE Number in Spain and I can walk into any police station and demand one? Is this right?
A: Advice given in Online forums and outdated information on the internet causes us problems every day… Since 2016 it has NOT been possible to obtain a NIE Number without a CITA PRIVA appointment and the correct forms completed. We have a wealth of knowledge on the NIE Number system and keep up to date with changes in the law with regards to this area.
**If you do manage to find a Police station that will issue a NIE Number certificate without an appointment please let us know 🙂
Q: My friend down the pub (The Sun Burnt Arms) said if I give the Spanish Police a few Euros they will get me a NIE Number appointment sooner. Is this Right?
A: No, Just No! Although information given by locals in the pub is sometimes helpful this is Absolutely not the case with Spanish NIE Numbers…… NIE Number certificates are normally issued from main central police stations. We would strongly recommend NOT trying this.. (we have heard of people who have tried and run into problems with the law) Also avoid using a fake NIE Number.
Q: I submitted my NIE Number form but haven’t heard anything back?
A: Once you press the submit button on our online NIE Number booking form it is almost instantly received by us. We then link it to a payment and our representative will call you. If we have not received payment confirmation from PayPal we can not start processing your booking. If, in the very unlikely case you have made payment and still have not heard from us please let us know using the contact us form. This is very, very unlikely but computer glitches/human error do occasionally happen.
Q: Do I need a NIE Number for my Children?
A: Children of any age can get a NIE Number if they need one. Some events such as out of school sports lessons require your child to have a NIE Number. If we are processing an application for a child please let us know in the extra notes section of the form. Read more about NIE Numbers and children here.
Q: I met the man in the pub again last night. He said my NIE Number will expire after 3 months. Is this right?
A: The man at the pub strikes again! Before 2016 the Spanish Police did used to Issue Temporary NIE Numbers for 3 months. The rules have now changed and your NIE Number is the same number for life. Click here to read more about ‘do NIE Numbers Expire’.

Q: I want to fill in the forms my self but need them Translated into English. Can you send me a translated version?
A: Unless you are well read in Spanish and have a good grasp of the Spanish booking system we do not recommend attempting to either book or fill in the Spanish NIE Number forms your self.

Q: The waiting time for an appointment is crazy. I think your company is just slow at booking appointments. What do you say to that?
A: Our main priority is to get you booked in to a NIE Number appointment at the Police station and to have your NIE Number certificate in your hand as soon as possible. Within a few hours of receiving your application one of our staff is tasked with booking your appointment. It is not in our interests to delay your appointment time.
We understand that sometimes waiting for a cancellation appointment can be stressful, especially if you are waiting to start a job, buy a property or have some other urgent need for a NIE Number.
Unfortunately the Spanish booking system is what it is. The Spanish police will release the appointments as and when they decide to. We can only work with what the Spanish system will give us. If you arrive in busy parts of Spain in peak tourist Season you will very likely have some sort of waiting time until your appointment.
We kindly ask that you speak to our hardworking staff in a Polite manor, as you would expect from us at all times. We reserve the right to cancel any persons appointment and refund their payment if we feel this mutual respect is not adhered to.
Q: I’ve lost my NIE Number certificate, can you order me a new one?
A: Unfortunatly the system around getting a replacement NIE Number certificate is the same as applying for a new number. We will need all your information again and need to make you a new appointment at the Police station. Click here to read about Lost NIE Numbers.
Q: If I get my NIE Number now will it still be Valid after Brexit?
A: Yes your new Spanish NIE Number will be be valid post Brexit. We have a page on our blog discussing NIE Numbers and Brexit. The law on obtaining NIE Numbers is likely to change after Brexit. We will update our blog when we know the changes.

Q: Why have some sections of the NIE Number forms been left blank?
A: Some sections of your NIE Number forms have been intentionally left blank. This is because most sections are inapplicable to your application. We may leave other sections blank due to regional differences in how the form should be completed. We recommend taking a Black ball point pen with you (must be black, must be ballpoint) in case any additional information is required in your region on the NIE Number forms.
Q: I don’t know which type of Proof to take to my NIE Number appointment. Can you help me?
A: Once we have received your details and made your CITA PRIVIA online NIE Number appointment our staff we let you know what documents you need to take based on your own personal circumstances and reason for needing a NIE Number. It is your responsibility to provide the correct proof for your NIE Number application.
Q: If I am not successful on obtaining a NIE Number on my first visit to the police station will you rebook me another appointment?
A: We will book your first NIE Number appointment for you when you place your order. If for any reason you can not make that date, or due to reasonable circumstances you miss that appointment we will make one more appointment for you.
