hi carolina you have  first to go to the Mossos  to make a denunciation about the loss or robbed  your NIE. Go to the Mossos near you. But you can go to  other place to put the report or denounce.After the  MossoS you go to get another NIE at the same place where you was  take first NIE Subdelegation or national spain police, that depend of NIE type or your citizenship.

my wallet was also recently stolen.  Fortunately, I was able to stop all my bank cards. I've also applied for a new NIE in these 5 days since it's been stolen.  But then all my cards were returned to me by an anonymous caller..

My question: how do I cancel my NIE application? (Not appointment)

HELLO if I request a new NIE, payment,  filled forms, etc
When you make all process  in the police office deliver the NIE stolen and give the new. You can Change in Police Office the new NIE und get to Police the stolen NIE.
If you have just made ​​an appointment to the police and still has not processed the NIE, you can call or visit the Issue of appointment to cancel.
thats all

This is an old post, you might not get a response. I suggest you start a new post.

Hello, my Nie was stolen last October 22, 2017 and it will expire on January 15 2018. Do I need to ask for duplicate or proceed to renewal? Please help thanks

There is confusion here.

An NIE never expiries and never needs to be renewed.        If it is lost them one can apply to replace the certificate. It is advisable to make a loss report (denuncia) at a National Police or Guardia Civil office (or whatever is the equivalent in Catalunia etc)  as usually that is required when  one makes an application to replace it.

If it is an EU Citizen Registration Certificate or in the case of a non EU citizen a RESIDENCIA,  again it is best to report the loss and then apply at the Extranjería for the replacement  at the office where you obtained it unless you have moved since then,


I see that you are from Philippines, a non-EU citizen ,  so you must be referring to your plastic residencia  ID card

You will need to report it stolen (denuncia) and then go to National Police  Extranjería  (foreigners Dept)  where you live and tell them what has happened and ask what you will require.   

As you know you are required to carry  that card at all times.
