  2. Ive just moved to Estepona with my family. We all need NIE Numbers. Can you help us. What is the difference3 between a green nie and a white one and does the white nie expire

    1. Hi robin

      Thanks for your message. Yes we can help you get your NIE Numbers in Estepona no problem. Please use our online NIE Number booking form and we will get you booked into Estepona Police station as soon as possible.

      The little green card known as the green nie is actually your residency card. once you have your NIE Number, a fixed address, plus either a work contract, or private health insurance plus proof of funds in a Spanish bank account then we can get you booked in for residency also.

      I hope this helps?
