The NIE (Número de Identificación de Extranjero) is a Spanish tax identification number assigned by the Spanish authorities. The number is unique and personal and is used as a way of tracking an individual's financial and official activities in Spain. It is a legal requirement for all resident and non-resident foreigners with financial, professional or social affairs in Spain - regardless of whether they are EU citizens or from a non-EU country.
The NIE is essential for any fiscal transactions in Spain where money is paid to the Spanish Inland Revenue office. The NIE should be quoted in all dealings with tax authorities. The number appears on all documents issued in Spain and always starts with an ‘X’ followed by seven numbers and a letter. The number is non-transferable and it does not expire.
