The Ferrer consultant offers the possibility to get the NIE Application,( Tax identification number). It´s the first step you should take prior to buying a property, or another kind of economical activity, and during this process we´ll be your legal representation, dealing with any issues which may arise. We deal with immigration resolutions, based on the knowledge and experience of our solicitors.
The NIE is essential in order to start any kind of activity in Spain. This document is quite simple, it is issued on a A4 piece of paper with stamp from the Ministry of Interior, it contains details such as your name, date of birth, and your nationality as well as the assigned number. Nevertheless, the application process can be extremely exhausting for non-Spanish speakers, as most public servants do not speak English and are very impatient when explaining how to fill the form and what type of documentation to provide, besides the long queues to be assigned a date to submit your application.
Some foreigners get frustrated during this application process either because they find themselves lost in translations or because they are obliged to go several times to the National Police Station to submit the NIE, because of missing documents. In Ferrer Agency we offer our client a solution to bypass this nuisance, providing and efficient and fast service, which solves their problems.
