  1. David, this is done after one has residency and TIE in one’s hand? So, a TIE or NIE is needed in order to establish the digital signature certificate? As a brand new resident can the digital signature be requested at the same time? Thanks and apologies for my ignorance.


      1. Can I get a digit signiture from the UK . I have an NIE already. I understand that I have to get my identity verified can it be done here in the UK.
