So I just got back from the consulate and my visa was approved. My NIE eligibility, on the other hand, got severely scrutinized but in the end I received a small paper (just a few lines on a blank piece of paper) saying my NIE is approved. The consular officer did however say that it is subject to further investigation and may ultimately be denied. This got me quite confused. Anyone else that has had the same? Can I still be denied at the border?

Great to hear you got your visa and NIE! May I ask: (1) which consulate? (2) when did you book the appointment? (3) which visa are you on?
