These are some of the most frequently asked questions and their corresponding answers.
Yes, it is possible to open a Spanish bank account from abroad. However, the requirements and procedures may vary depending on the bank and the type of account you want to open.
Some banks may require you to physically visit a branch in Spain to open an account, while others may allow you to open an account online or via mail. Additionally, you may need to provide certain documents, such as identification, proof of address, and proof of income. This is important because while they might allow you to open your bank account with a passport number you might need to have a Spanish phone number in place to receive any security code details.
It’s best to check with the specific bank you’re interested in to determine their requirements and procedures for opening an account from abroad. Some popular Spanish banks that allow non-residents to open accounts include BBVA, Santander, and CaixaBank.
A NIE is a tax ID not an Identity Number…
The NIE is a commonly used term for the green card issued to EU passport holders. If you are an EU/EEA citizen and would like to stay longer than 90 days in Spain, then you will have to register with the authorities to get a NIE “residence card”. The correct legal term to call it is “Certificado de Registro EU” -EU residency certificate aka NIE green card. This is a green paper card that cannot be laminated. It contains your name, date of birth and location of birth, address in Spain and date of application. NIE stands for Número de Identificación de Extranjero (identification number for foreigners) and is for everyone who isn’t a Spanish citizen. The NIE is always one letter followed by 7 numbers, and then another letter- e.g. X-7654567-C. It’s a number that identifies you as a foreigner in Spain. This number is required for any legal and financial work in filing taxes, buying property, establishing a business, opening a bank account, and for almost all other forms you fill out. You need a NIE to make any kind of transaction or payment that might involve the Spanish Tax Offic
In sum, all foreigners need a NIE number, regardless of their nationality. Then, if you want be a resident, non-EU nationals can get a document called TIE, while EU-nationals should get a “Certificado de Registro de la EU”.
No, this is counterproductive and we definitely do not recommend you do that.
