    Hi all,

    I am coming to work out in Ibiza this summer & I am wondering how important getting an NIE number is to find work?

    Ive read some stuff online and some posts reckon its not the be all & end all as most jobs id be doing out there are cash in hand. How true is this?

    Do I need this or have people done a season without one? Thanks!

    If you want to be a puppet with no rights in the hands of your employer, go without.

    we have had this vicious circle whereby they were asking for proof of a certain amount of savings but you couldn't get a job without one so how would you have an income? and then getting directed to websites to arrange a cita previa appointment and then not getting through. all a bit of a headache. I'm not sure if there is a better way of fast tracking an application? if / when you get one @Connor94 could you let us know how you did it?

    definitely worth getting but not from one of these guys that are charging like 80 quid to do it before you get there. just go to ibiza town police station in your first few days and sort it yourself for like 10 euro's. go in a group with someone that speaks Spanish preferably for filling out the forms incase no'one there helps. i'll be doing it in the first week of May

    If you need a NIE, download the EX-15 application form from this website

    http://www.exteriores.gob.es/Portal...o/InformacionParaExtranjeros/Paginas/NIE.aspx

    There is also an english instructions sheet available.

    Fill out the form and go to the next spanish Consular next to you place, pay a small administration fee and two weeks later you will have the NIE in your inbox.
    There is nothing complicated about it.
    Don't waste your time in Ibiza queuing up at the police station.
