Pick-up locations

Before you can start using the Estonian digital signature and establish a company you need to apply to become e-resident and then pick up an e-Residency kit from one of the pickup locations listed below.

Scheduling your travel to the pickup point

  • After your application has been approved, it can take 2-5 weeks for your e-Residency kit to arrive at your pickup location. Once it has arrived, your pickup location will send instructions related to scheduling your pick up. We recommend you wait to plan any travel until this time. 
  • You will need to collect your document in person as your fingerprints are required. 
  • If you do not have a pickup location in your country, you can arrange to collect your e-Residency kit in another country. More information in the FAQ.

FAQ about e-Residency card pickup

What if there is no pickup location in my country?
You will need to choose a pickup location in another country. Please keep in mind, once your e-Residency kit has arrived at your pickup location, you will need to collect it within 6 months. In many cases, your e-Residency kit is available for collection 6-8 weeks after you have submitted your application.
Can someone else pick up my card?
No. You will need to collect your document in person as your fingerprints are required. It is not possible to give someone else the power of attorney to collect your document. It is also not possible to give your fingerprints at another time.
Can you send my e-Residency kit by mail?
No. You will need to physically collect your document from one of the available pickup locations. Part of the collection process is the identification of the user of the document. Your document is given to you with PIN codes and you should never give your e-Residency card or PIN codes to third parties.
Can honorary consuls issue my e-Residency kit?
No. E-Residency digital ID cards can only be issued by the official embassies and pickup locations listed on the application. Honorary consuls or other embassies representing Estonia can not issue e-Residency cards.
Can I change the pickup location?

In most cases, though this is not encouraged. Additional time will be needed to re-route your document to the new location. Additionally, a change fee will need to be paid. This will not be a solution to prolong the 6 months timeframe for collection. For the pricing, please check the following information.

E-Residency was granted but I haven't heard anything since
Pickup locations send email notifications when the document has arrived (in general within 2-5 weeks after e-Residency has been granted). Sometimes these notifications go into spam mailbox, please check. You can also contact the pickup location directly. For pickup location contact information, please see this list.
