We’re happy to announce that Estonia has launched a new Digital Nomad Visa that allows remote workers to live in Estonia and legally work for their employer or their own company registered abroad.
Interact with other people planning to move to Estonia.
This section will contain all sorts of other information. If you don't see something that you think should be mentioned, please reach out to me and I'll add it.
You can apply for the digital nomad visa if you meet the following requirements
If you are already legally in Estonia and would like to extend your stay, you can also apply for this visa at a Police and Border Guard Board office. If you choose to apply in Estonia, make sure you have enough time for the application processing period.
You can apply for an Estonian long-stay visa (D-visa) or a short-stay visa to Estonia (C-visa), depending on the planned period of stay.
In addition to the general visa application procedure and rules, you’ll need to provide documents proving that you meet the eligibility requirements of being a location-independent employee or digital nomad.
No person is automatically eligible for a visa and their background is checked as carefully as for other visa applicants.
Due to the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Estonia’s borders are currently open to people travelling from a limited group of approved countries outside the EU, Schengen Zone, or the UK. Only people coming from these approved countries can apply for a Digital Nomad Visa. The Digital Nomad Visa does not provide people coming from countries not in this approved list with an exemption to travel to Estonia. For the latest information including the list of approved countries, please visit the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website.
The Estonian Government has not delegated to any private visa agent or representative the right or ability to handle DNV applications. The only official way to apply for a DNV is directly through an Estonian Representation that handles visa applications or a Police and Border Guard office.”
