Cancelling your NIE Spain appointment is not as easy as it sounds. As we write this guide (9th June 2018) the Spanish CITA website is not working for cancellations.  This exasperates the problem as you can only have one CITA appointment at a time, which means waiting until after your appointment date to book another appointment.

We recommend do NOT attempt to book your own NIE Number Appointment unless you are certain you know how to do it correctly and know how to fill in the paperwork.
