NIE Cita previa
To be able to apply for the NIE in Barcelona (in the main office in Rambla Guipuzcoa, 74) you will first need to schedule the “cita previa“. Cita previa for NIE means the previous appointment in the immigration office in Barcelona.
On their website: https://sede.administracionespublicas.gob.es/icpplus/citar, you can schedule your NIE appointment without many problems if you know some Spanish.
From the fist window choose: Barcelona and from the second one: Certificados UE (if you are EU passport holder).
After filling out your personal and contact information details, dates and times will be given for you to choose. Appointment confirmation will be sent to your e-mail address if you tick the little boxes before the final confirmation.
Because there is a limited amount of appointments available every week, after they are all taken, this message pops up:
“En este momento no hay citas disponibles. En breve, la oficina pondrá a su disposición nuevas citas”
If this happens, the only thing you can do is to wait until the immigration office schedules new dates or if you need your NIE urgently, you can contact us and we will help you to get the cita previa for shortest possible time.
We can also help scheduling another types of appointments like fingerprints “huella”, prorroga, EU family member (familiar comunitario), or autorizacion de regreso.
Please note that at the moment it is very complicated to get the appointment in the immigration office so it can take quite a long time before we are able to get the appointment “cita previa”.
