Default NIE, bank accounts etc for offshore workers

Hi all,

Not posted for a wee while, been a bit busy. However managed to squeeze a week in Spain in last week. Found a place and signed a 11 month rental so now starts all the paperwork fun.

So far I have discovered I need to get a NIE number which is through form EX14 NIE. I have got copies etc of this form so between google translate and a wee bit outside help I will get this filled in. I am due back to work this week and then out to Spain mid-february so will hopefully get the wheels in motion for everything.

There is also a form EX16 Residencia form which I am led to believe has to be filled in, however does this form only need to be filled in for a stay that equals 90 consequtive days or more? Because I work offshore I will only ever be in Spain for max 28 days at a time before heading back to work.

With regards to bank accounts I am aware of setting up a temporary bank account and then once I get the NIE number can transfer it, however have heard some horror stories about Spanish banks, this is something I will have to look into with a bit more detail.

I am sure there will be more questions along the way and while in Spain caught up with 1 of the members of the forum who was very helpful so big thanks there :-)

Thanks

Grant

your info is a bit out of date

you need the EX15 for a NIE - & if you're not going to be here 90 days at a time then you don't have to sign as resident, so don't worry about that one

have a look at this - lots more info & you can download the forms there too

You can set up a bank account with your passport details, I use Caixa and BBVA both have been very good.

Had no problems whatsoever setting up account with Solbank, first temporary account, then permanent. You should be able to find plenty posts about this.
