Please see my post on the 'Opening a Cafe' thread. It attempts to explain the reality of life in Spain.
No-one has as yet mentioned that you one need to prove an income of around 650 per person plus 6000 in the bank plus proof of medical insurance before you can come to live in Spain.

You don't need to prove, you NEED to have actually to can live. Don't confuse him.

For NIE you need to prove, I did my papers about one year ago and they asked me to prove that I have that money for me and my wife, and the medical insurance.

Just make a simple computation and you need per 2 peoples 1000+ euro per month to can live ( Rent+Food+ many many more).

You mean 'residencia' - you need NO proof for just the NIE.

If they are intending to come to work then yes, they will need to prove that income.
No confusion...how can anyone legally work in Spain without an NIE?

Imo two people need a bit more than 1000 per month to,live well..exist, maybe.
Rent of a decent flat, utilities, transport,various insurances, repairs, clothing...that's before you eat and never mind the occasional night out.

Well, when I moved to Spain, because I did not come to work, they asked me to prove the money and insurance to can get NIE. Probable if you have a work contract they do not ask you that.

But the OPs don't have a work contract and aren't likely to get one.

I don't necessarily take it as negativity, rather honesty! I didn't realise the autonomo went up to 500 a month. That seems excessive! No wonder so many fail! God. Thanks again.

There's demand in Madrid for native English teachers/carers at nursery level. Perhaps in the long run opening an English speaking nursery would be an option - many Spanish parents are bending over backwards to get their kids into those places, waiting lists are long.

no..... that's to register as resident - NOT to get a NIE number - you don't even have to live here or even COME to Spain for a NIE number - so they will NEVER ask for proof of anything just for a NIE number (except perhaps proof of WHY you need it)

if when you went for your NIE you told them that you were living here & that's why you needed it, you would have then been required to register as resident - THEN & ONLY THEN do you have to show proof of funds/income & healthcare provision

In the long run...but meanwhile..?

It's difficult enough these days starting such an establishment in the UK so I should imagine it's even more complex in Spain. There probably is as you say a need for nurseries in big cities but one in our village has recently closed its doors.

It seems that Madrid, Barcelona and other big cities are the only places where these even a slight chance of work for foreigners these days.
If it were that simple to start a business I wonder why so many Spaniards are leaving Spain to look for work in other EU countries....
