Yes, you need to get Residency for him aswell, the process is exactly the same as for adults. When I got it for my daughter they did here NIE number at the same time for no extra charge. A Child's NIE numbe starts with a " Y " as opposed to an " X " and will appear on teh Residency Documentation itself. She was never issued an official NIE number and certificate seperately as I don't believe that they do this for minors, but this may now have changed.
