Our legal services include the following matters:
The NIE (“Número de Identificación de Extranjeros”) is the tax identification number for foreigners in Spain. This document is issued by the Police (although the NIE application can be also submitted at some Spanish Consulates).
The requirements to obtain the NIE number vary depending on whether the applicant is an EU citizen or a non-EU citizen, and also depends on the police station where the application is submitted.
At MT LEGAL Marbella Solicitors, we will assist you with your NIE application. Please contact us for more information.
SPANISH NATIONALITY APPLICATION
Spanish citizenship can be obtained following different routes, but mainly by residing legally and continuously in Spain for 10 years (citizens married to Spanish nationals can apply for Spanish citizenship after 1 year, as well as those who were born in Spain; citizens from former Spanish colonies, Portugal and Brazil, 2 years).
Applicants must prove they are integrated in Spain by passing a Spanish socio-cultural test, and a Spanish language test.
In addition, the applicant must not have a criminal record, and must have financial resources to live in Spain. The Spanish nationality process currently takes about 15-24 months. At MT Legal Lawyers, we will be pleased to assist you in your Spanish nationality application process. For more information, please contact us.
The Non-Lucrative residence permit allows people to live but not work in Spain, also involving the obligation of residing at least 183 days in Spain.
The Non-Lucrative residence permit application is granted for an initial period of one year, and is renewable for subsequent periods of 2 years. After the second renewal, the residence permit is considered a long-term residence permit which has to be renewed every 5 years.
The Non-Lucrative residence permit application is submitted at the Spanish Consulate with jurisdiction at the place of residence of the applicant.
Should you wish to know if you qualify for the Non-Lucrative residence permit, at MT LEGAL SOLICITORS Marbella we can prepare a preliminary study of your case for a reasonable fee. Please contact us for more information.
