Estonia is creating a borderless digital society for global citizens as the first country to offer e-Residency.E-Residency is a transnational digital identity that anyone in the world can apply for to obtain access to a platform built on inclusion, legitimacy and transparency. E-residents then have access to the EU business environment and can use public e-services through their digital identity. The primary reason e-residents are joining this community is to run a trusted location-independent EU business online with all the tools needed to conduct business globally.


e-Residents can:

  • Establish and manage a location-independent company online from anywhere in the world
  • Establish a trusted EU company online in one day
  • Manage the resulting company fully online
  • Apply for a business bank account and credit card, and conduct secure e-banking
  • Access international payment service providers (Paypal, Braintree, etc.)
  • Digitally sign and transmit documents
  • Declare Estonian taxes online
