The NIE isn’t a ‘card’, it’s an A4 piece of paper.

The NIE number is needed before you can buy items that need to have government tax paid on them. This includes property and vehicles. It’s also easier to do things like open a bank account and sign-up for utilities if you have an NIE.

Probably easier and quicker to get one issued in the UK at the moment.

In many cases it's not even a piece of paper - just an email you have to print.

Get it as soon as you wish, and it's much easier done in the UK.

You can apply for an NIE number as an non resident
