NIE in 1 Day are based on the Costa Blanca in Alicante and have been offering a no fuss, stress free NIE service to foreigners for more than seven years. The main service offered is assistance in obtaining NIE numbers and Certificado/residencia to both EU and non-EU residents although we also offer help to those wishing to complete a car ownership transfer, car plate change, social security registration, register a NIE for tax payments as a non resident and more.
There have been many changes in the application procedure for NIEs and certificados over the last few years, not least of which is that the main Police Station in Alicante for applying for NIEs has moved four times! Another difficulty which many of our customers have is not speaking the language. In the majority of National Police Stations (where you need to go to make NIE applications) the only language spoken is Spanish making the process even more stressful and all of the application paperwork is written in Spanish.
Another frustrating factor to consider is that none of the police stations operate the same system for applying. Some insist on a prior appointment being made (cita previa) whilst at others you need to be in the queue outside the station early in the morning waiting for the police to give out the tickets. Only a small number of tickets are issued each day and anyone who is unsuccessful will be asked to return the following day. The paperwork required also varies office to office as do collection procedures. At some offices you may be waiting up to a month in peak times to get your original NIE certificate or Residencia card.
As we at NIE in 1 Day are regular visitors to most of the police stations on the Costa Blanca we are able to stay up to date with the requirements for NIEs and Residencias thus ensuring that our clients are prepared with everything that they need to make a successful application and that they do not waste time having to make several trips to the police station to get it right.
NIEs are now issued with a three month validity date on them. This is because after three months of living here the police want you to apply for your residencia. Once you have your NIE number however this is your number for life, even if you do go ahead and obtain your residencia.
The requirements for residencia for EU applicants have changed a great deal in 2012 with applicants now being expected to be able to prove that they have the income to support themselves through their pension, private income or wages, as well as private health care if necessary. It will very much depend on your individual circumstances as to what supporting documentation you will require and we can advise you on this also.
Our service includes preparing all of the paperwork beforehand, obtaining the appointment with the police for the NIE number application, ensuring the relevant taxes are paid as well as dealing with the police on your behalf and collecting the certificates when ready. Obtaining your NIE number with us will only require about an hour of your time and you can safely leave all of the organizing to us, knowing you are in good hands.
