Reply To: can you get NIE number in the UK?


Hi Matchey,

You do have to visit the consulate in person. For the best instructions on how to obtain an NIE number plus forms to download and information on consulates have a look at this page:
If you find that the link to Spanish consulates in the UK and worldwide on this page isn’t working let me know. It wasn’t working when I tried it just now, the reason being that the website of the government department responsible seems to be temporarily down.

I hope that helps.
