Estonian Banks

The two most popular banks for e-residents in Estonia are LHV and Swedbank.

LHV is an Estonian banking and financial services company headquartered in Tallinn, while Swedbank is a Nordic-Baltic banking group based in Stockholm, Sweden with a significant presence in Estonia.

E-residents can easily and securely manage their accounts with either bank by logging in with their e-Residency digi-ID from anywhere in the world. The interfaces are easy to navigate, all communication is in English (and various other languages) and their accounts integrate with other international payment providers and e-commerce solutions that they need to run their business.

In order to apply for a bank account with either of them, a personal visit to their office in Estonia is required. We recommend consulting a business service provider prior to scheduling your trip to Estonia to ensure you have all necessary documentation with you for the visit. List of the business service providers is available on our site https://e-resident.gov.ee/run-a-company/
