This section on official documents should be renamed as the “boring section” because it is; very boring.
However unexciting it is, it is also necessary when you are moving to, working in or living in a new country. There is a raft of necessary documentation that you have to work your way through to be able to function properly. Spain is no exception. In fact, many say its worse here due to the the numerous levels of red tape. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to get a job, buy a car, purchase or rent a house or even get a mobile telephone contract without a NIE number (the foreigner’s identification number).
It is not all bad, as the sense of satisfaction when you have wound your way through this minefield is immense. We help you get to the stage where you can go sit on the beach and drink sangria to your heart´s content. Despite the drudgery, we are here to make your life that little bit easier when obtaining and understanding official Spanish documentation. Much of this you could do yourself as some of the documents themselves are free. Problems arise if you do not have transport, if you don’t have a good level of Spanish, if you don’t know where to go or which line to stand in for five hours. We’ve done it for years and we will do it for you, cheaply and effectively.
