E-Estonia

Estonia is the world’s first country to also function as a digital service.

Our unique approach is to offer a variety of state services to people outside of Estonia. Register a company online, digitally sign and exchange encrypted documents, conduct secure online bank transfers, and make tax declarations electronically. All these are available and accessible to non-residents.

Since 2014, more than 45,000 people from 154 different countries have been granted Estonian e-residency. Get in touch to join our transnational digital community!
