How to obtain a Social Security Number to work legally in Spain?

All of those who are legal in Spain and want to work, will need to obtain a Social Security Number before starting to work*.

Steps to obtain a Social Security Number:

  1. Download fill out the application
  2. Prepare your documents:
  1. Search for the Social Security office closest to you
  2. At the appointment: Present yourself with the required documents in point 1 and 2, take a number, and wait your turn
  3. Obtain your Social Security Number

*If you arrive in Spain on a Student Visa you technically do not have rights to work and hold a paid job. Not unless you specifically apply for a document which gives you permission to work on a student visa.
