At Castelo Solicitors, our Spanish Lawyers can act on behalf of clients with regards to any Spanish-British legal services that a client may require done at any Spanish Consulate in the UK.

Our Spanish legal team consists of Spanish lawyers practising in the jurisdiction of Spain, and as such, amongst the various services that you can instruct our Spanish lawyers to do on your behalf is applying for your Spanish N.I.E. number.

Our Spanish Lawyers in the UK can obtain your NIE number at the Spanish Consulate in London and Manchester.

Non Spanish nationals (people that do not hold Spanish nationality) who, due to their economic, professional or social interests, wish to do certain transactions in Spain, can apply for the N.I.E. number, which is a personal, unique and exclusive sequential number, needed for identification purposes.

The NIE however, does not give you legal “residence” as such in Spain, in any event. For this, you will need to seek legal advice from Spanish Lawyers, which you can do at Castelo Solicitors.
