Opening bank account without NIE

Postby power » Fri Aug 05, 2016 12:35 pm

Hi all,

I currently in progress to get my NIE number. The main police station is too busy and gave me an appointment in the middle of September.

I have spotted a few known banks here in Malaga, but is there any banks willing to open an account to receive foreign money without the NIE number?

Thanks

We found Sabadell to be very helpful when you explain the problem.

Super, thanks a lot for the fast replies. I will arrange a meeting with them at Monday.

Is there any specific requirements, minimum balance, and opening fees I should be aware of?

Hi power,
Checkout Sabadell's Fees for various transactions.........I was a customer (via the Halifax-> Lloyd's -> Sabadell fiasco) but for a non-resident found them expensive compared to my other Bank in the Caja Rural Group.

Also have a Bank Branch close to where you're going to live. Although Sabadell is a large long established Bank branches are thin on the ground in certain areas......provincia de Jaén for one..... :(

Once you have NIE get that on Bank records as Passport Numbers change on renewal.

Hi Enrique,

Do you have any reference to the bank fees? Unfortunately, I don't know Spanish yet so couldn't find any information about it.
