About

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.

Digital nomads and remote workers have long faced ambiguity when working while they travel, often skirting the law by working while visiting a country with a tourist visa. But as of August 1, 2020, eligible location-independent workers can apply for the chance to come to Estonia to live for up to a year with peace of mind that they can legally work.

Estonia has already transformed the way a country serves people beyond its borders through programs such as e-Residency. Now with the Digital Nomad Visa, Estonia is transforming how people in the world choose to work.

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.
