Over the weekend...in Spain?...more chance of England winning the world cup!! Why do you need it so urgently?

You can apply at the local police station, just not sure if they will do it at the weekend.

Basically, no.  You need to go to the Playa Flamenca town hall and report to the extranjeros (foreigners) room.  They have a poster telling you what documentation you need (passport, photos, deeds etc) and then you fill in a form and hand in all your documentation.  From experience, be prepared for a long wait (all morning) just to get the ball rolling.  If everything is in order, they will ask you to come back in 4 or 5 weeks to collect the NIE papers.  You can get them done quicker (same day) by going to the Alicante office but this will completely ruin your holiday.  Oh, and you'll be lucky to find them open in the week, let alone at a weekend.  Check the opening hours on the office door (not the town hall opening hours but the extranjero office opening hours which are different.)  And the girl in there knocks off for a break at 10:30 regardless of how many people are waiting.  You collect a number (like Tesco meat counter) from the window on the right when you go in.  Then settle down with a good book until your number comes up.

Best of luck.

 or..........pay someone 125€ to go to Alicante for you and get it in one day.......you can sit on the beach and wait for them.............well worth it in my opinion.

 We managed to get our NIE no.s very quickly. Our solicitor organised everything for us. His secretary drove us to Alicante, someone was already holding a place for us in the queue and we were all and back at our solicitors office by 11 am.  I think we paid a 100 Euros well worthwhile. Kevin

100 euro is very reasonable considering how time you've saved but some lawyers charge a riduculous amount as high as 165 euro.  Luckily my lawyer charged me 125 euro.  

Is it true that when you apply for NIE, you also get the residencia? I read in another forum that NIE & residencia are together in 1 form.

If not, where do you go to apply for residencia?

I've the impression that NIE & residencia can be applied together using EX16 form. When I asked my lawyer to fill in the EX16 form as I want both, he told me that residencia is applied later after the NIE. There's no way I want to pay another 125 euro esp after paying 375 euros for 3 NIEs. It looks like I need to apply residencia in person later on.  So confusing with all these rules!
