Apply for a Foreigners Identification Number (NIE) when purchasing a house.

The N.I.E. is the “alien identification number” or Número de Identificación de Extranjeros. This number is essential in all transactions and operations (purchase of real estate, opening of a bank account, telephone subscription, water, electricity, purchase of a vehicle, etc.). Your lawyer can request this number if he has power of attorney or you can request it yourself by appointment at the immigration office in Almería.

As a buyer, once the NIE has been obtained, you will need to open a bank account in Spain.

The bank account is necessary for the accreditation of the buyer's means of payment when purchasing the property, as well as for the payment of subsequent expenses and taxes. When you open a bank account in Spain, the bank will ask you for the NIE, a valid passport, proof of income and your tax identification number from the country of origin.

Once you have these 2 things, you are ready to start your adventure and you can purchase a house in Almeria.
