  • How I finally got my N.I.E.

    Monday, 21 October 2013

    The N.I.E. is the Número de Identidad Extranjero - Foreign Identity Number to you and me. I was aware I would have to get something like this in order to do things like open a bank account, and to legally be here for more than 90 days. The problem is, it seems that every avenue of finding out about the process of it is absolutely shambolic - it infuriated me that nobody seemed to know exactly what needed to be done, despite telling me things as if they did. I will write how I got mine, and hopefully it will be of a more reliable source for those of you who need to get it and haven't, having actually done the process yesterday.
