    You do not need to have SSN. Use your tax id from your country.

    All of these tax id's are free, you just need to send your application / documents to the IRS. There are some companies out there doing this whole process for you.

    As far as I know, as a non us resident you're only eligible for an ITIN.

    Anyway, as a foreigner, you are exempt of taxes and you don't need any tax id. Just submit W8.
