Foreigners Identification Number (Numero de Identidad de Extranjero – NIE)
for this card will be necessary for us, if we want to find legal
employment in Spain. The fees are very small, from 5 to 7 euro, the
fee changes almost every year and the students can get discount. The
institution we need to go to get N.I.E. is Oficina de extranjería,
of which we can find on the website www.policia.es,
and if we does not know spanish, it is easier to just put in the
de extranjería (name
of the city)"
need to take with us filled application form (we can find it on the
internet or at the police station), our ID card/passport + its copy,
confirmation of payment (very easy to get, you just go to any bank,
says that want to pay for N.I.E. and after the transaction you will
be printed the confirmation of payment).
we wait a few daysa and return to the office to receive our N.I.E.
why it is so important to have this number? Except of legal
employment, we also are recieving the same benefits as the citizens
of Spain, in the areas of work conditions, minimum wage, payment
conditions, insurance etc. The only restrictions in this are
connected with working in public institutions.
