e-Residency Company badge

A trusted business environment

E-Residency offers an open and transparent EU business environment for global entrepreneurs. This trust can improve the ease of doing business with customers, partners, and investors, as well as provide greater access to the financial tools required to grow a company.

All e-residents are assessed before they receive their secure government-issued digital identity. Key data about their companies established in Estonia are then publically available
in official records, such as taxation and the identity of owners.

As a result, companies established by e-residents in Estonia are allowed to display the Trusted e-Residency Company badge.

How to use the Trusted e-Residency Company badge

As an e-resident, you have the freedom to establish a trusted company because Estonia offers an open and transparent EU business environment and all e-residents are subject to background checks from the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board.

It’s understandable that you may want to display this trust to customers, partners and investors. That’s why companies established through e-Residency are allowed to use the Trusted e-Residency Company badge on their website or offline materials.

You can download the logos at the end of this page, but please first read carefully through the guidelines on who can use it and how.

Who can use the badge?

This badge can only be used by:

  • A limited company (OÜ) registered in Estonia with at least one e-resident on the management board.
  • A social enterprise (MTU) registered in Estonia with at least one e-resident on the management board.

Please note that badge is not intended for companies who only provide products and services to e-residents if they do not fulfil the criteria above. However, e-Residency business service providers are welcome to show the badge to their clients (including on their websites) when explaining the advantages of starting a company through e-Residency.

Talking about e-Residency

In addition to using the badge, your company is welcome to provide more information about e-Residency and how it supports your business. This could include material on your website, media content, or when speaking at events or meetings offline.

You are welcome to contact the e-Residency programme at e-resident@gov.ee should you need any guidance, support or further materials.

When talking about e-Residency, always do this:

  • Emphasise that e-Residency provides access to a borderless digital nation, powered by the Republic of Estonia.
  • Write ‘e-Residency’ or ‘e-residents’. Also, use a capital E for both of these words when they are written at the start of a sentence.
  • If useful, provide a link to e-resident.gov.ee.

But don’t do this:

  • State or imply that your company is partnering or working with e-Residency (or the Estonian government), unless agreed in writing with the e-Residency programme.

You are welcome to use the badge in conjunction with your own company logo. If so, ensure both logos have clear space between them and your own logo is the same height as either the text (if using the transparent badge) or the rectangular box around it (if using a solid colour badge).

When displaying the badge, always do this:

  • Display the badge where it is clearly visible and well contrasted against your own background.

  • Scale the logo proportionately when needed.
  • Ensure the badge is clickable to this link: [Insert link again.]

But don’t do this:

  • Modify, distort or use a low resolution version of the logo.

How can the badge be used offline?

If so, please ensure that any staff members who may be questioned about the logo are familiar with e-Residency and why it provides the company with a trusted business environment to operate within.
