    I'm not a British citizen (we can apply next January) and turned 16 last month. I was under the impression that citizens were sent a national insurance number before their 16th birthday automatically, and that I would need one to work in most places.

    I've searched around the government websites, which say to ring them and get it done if you need one, but they don't mention anything specific to my circumstances, so I was just wondering if anyone could confirm that this is what I need to do.

    I'm really just double-checking, thanks

    Yes just ring. When I came back to the UK with my Kiwi husband that's what he did, and he got an NI number by return.
