What is an N.I.E Number?

N.I.E. is an abbreviation for Número de Identidad de Extranjero, which translates as Identification Number for Foreigners

The NIE is your all-purpose identification and tax number in Spain. You need it for everything that involves a tramite or official process in Spain. For example, you will need an NIE number to buy a property, buy a car, get connected to the utilities and pay your taxes. If you are an EU citizen and spend longer than 3 months in Spain after getting your NIE number, you are required to register and get a government certificate,Residencia, that shows your NIE number.
