Help, my bank account has been frozen!

Written on February 24, 2011 by Joël McConnell in Bank Accounts | Cuentas bancarias

If your Caja Madrid bank account has been temporarily frozen because you still have not provided your NIE number, then ask the branch about the prepaid debit card option as a bridge solution.  We understand that you are not able to do anything but wait until your appointment with the government offices that issue the NIE, however Bank of Spain regulations are very strict on the requirement of having a NIE number for all account holders at Spanish financial institutions.  For more information, please contact Financial Aid at

Si su cuenta bancaria de Caja Madrid ha sido temporalmente bloqueada porque todavía no ha facilitado su número de NIE, por favor pida su tarjeta de débito de prepago como solución alternativa. Entendemos que no puede hacer otra cosa que esperar hasta la cita con las oficinas de gobierno que emitan el NIE, pero las normativas del Banco de España son muy estrictas y exigen tener un NIE para todos los titulares de cuentas en entidades financieras españolas.
