Estonian Visa and Residency Information

Estonia is a party to the Schengen Agreement, which eliminates all internal border controls between the 25 member countries.  In general, U.S. citizens can visit the Schengen zone for tourism or business for 90 days within a six month period.  For a comprehensive review of the Schengen zone requirements, please visit the Department of State’s Schengen Fact Sheet.

Residency permits are issued by the Estonian Citizenship and Migration Board, which is a part of the Police. 

Please note that the Estonian government has made changes in resident permit applications and renewals. Stricter rules are now in place before your application is approved. Make sure you check the below Migration board web-site carefully well in advance of the expiration of the current permit, if you are applying for renewal.

Unfortunately, the U.S. Embassy cannot contact the Board on behalf of American citizens.
