Hi all. Need advice as moving to area later in September.  How quickly could I open a bank account as intending to long term rent with UK pensions . Is there an income requirement to do so and do banks charge you to run account as they did years ago when we lived in spain.  Do you need Nie to open account.  Any advice gratefully appreciated.

Hi we bank with Sabadell. They have an expansion account where if you put in from memory minimum 750e a month there are no charges. Yes you need nie to open one. Our lawyer done ours for us and it was quick to obtain and open

Many thanks indeed.  How quickly can you get am nie?  Sorry for asking but haven't visited mazarron before. Lived in spain previously but would you say it's a lovely area. Want to be near a small British ex pat community if possible just for social activities etc. Many thanks in advance. Eve.

Hi quite quickly through a lawyer but more expensive than doing it your self. I believe you need to make an appointment at the police station. Check with banks as heard some just need a passport. I know we also needed to supply NI numbers as well. Good luck.

H Eviedoll,

if you lived in Spain before, do you not already have an NIE number?

Yes but this was 20 years ago so don't know how I would even find it or if it is valid.

My understanding was that an NIE number is for life. 

If you really have no idea what it is however ..... ???
