Reply To: NIE


We have lived in Spain for over 15 years and when we purchsed a new car we had to apply for a new NIE number, and also get all our work contracts etc translated into English, as we work in Gibraltar, perhaps I am wrong but I believe this is a new procedure that has been put in place. It is also the same if you have to apply for a new residencia, the funny thing was we were then given our previous NIE number so it seemed to be a pointless excercise to bring in additional funds.
