How to get Spanish NIE number

Gromi will make the application process easy and smooth for you.

What is the NIE number?

The NIE number (Número de Identificación de Extranjero), is the equivalent of a Spanish person’s Número de Identificación Fiscal (NIF).

Each NIE Number is unique to one person and it is neither transferable nor does it expire.

You will need it to open a bank account, buy a property, get a job, etc.

If you are planning on staying for longer than 3 months in Spain you are required to apply for a Spanish residency permit (NIE for EU residents).

What do you need?

Our business lawyers will solve all your doubts and manage the whole process for you. And our accountants will be in charge of your taxes so you can focus on your business while growing.

Reason of applying

You need to provide a proof of why you are applying for the NIE. Job contract, house contract, residency…

How does it work?

We take care of the whole on your behalf, informing you in English during the process.


After you fill the form we send you, you will only need to show up at the appointment.


We will set an appointment for you at the nearest police station.


We send you the right documents already filled so you only need to take them to the police station on the date of the appointment.


We will detail every step of the process so it’s clear for you what you need to take 

When will I get my NIE number?

Normally the process is quick, but there is a struggle with finding appointments in certain provinces. It can take around 2-4 weeks to find an appointment in some of them and in others we can get you booked in less than a week. 

Gromi has partners that can make the process much faster for you. Contact us today so we can start working as soon as possible to get your NIE!
