  1. Sorry I’m still confused. I’m moving over from the UK Before Brexit. If I get my NIE Number now will I need to get health insurance after Brexit?

    1. Hi Rose. Thank you for your comment on our NIE Number Blog. Pre-Brexit you will not need to provide proof of health insurance. However, after Brexit we are still unsure. If you would like us to book your NIE Number appointment please use our easy NIE Number booking form. Many Thanks, Lisa

  2. My son has gone to Spain on a working holiday! He flew out the 1st June. Its now obvious that not only does he need an NIE number but because of Brexit he also needs a permit of residence to live there for the season before he can even get a job. He is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Any suggestions before he chucks in the towel and comes home? He went out there to fulfil a dream of DJing. Unfortunately Brexit and COVID have scuppered his plans and we are desperate to give him some hope. The company he went out there with did not tell him this information beforehand.
