I'm going to be moving from Lithuania to Scotland this fall to study finance and was wondering is it possible to apply for and receive a national insurance number from outside of Scotland?
I've heard that it can take up to a month to receive one, and I'd rather not wait so long, since I'll be wanting to find a part-time job immediately while there are still some available during summer.

When you arrive in Scotland you will need to contact your local Social Security Agency. They will give you a temporary number while your application is processed.
