DNI, NIE and Passport

A National Identity Document (DNI) is the document that proves the identity, personal details and Spanish nationality of a Spanish citizen in Spain. The General Directorate of Police (Ministry of Home Affairs) issues the document for all Spanish citizens.

The Foreigner’s Identification Number (NIE) is the document that proves the identity, personal details and nationality of a foreign citizen in Spain. Therefore the Foreign Office of the General Directorate of Police issues it to foreigners who are authorised to stay in Spain. It is compulsory to carry it at all times.

A passport is a document with international validity that identifies the holder and allows them to exit or enter a country.
