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


nationals belonging to member states of the European Union and other states subscribing to the Agreement for European Economic Space, are not obliged to request an identity number as a foreigner and may ask to be assigned a Fiscal Identification Number from the Spanish Tax

This has been modified, the aeat website is not updated… since Madrid and London Bombings only Spanish consulates in foreign countries and foreigners offices of the Police in Spain are entitled to issue the NIEs (there, although legal term is 2 days to five weeks to issue it, usually you get it the same day, London Consulate takes an average of five weeks)
