Digital ID

Application by email

After your application has been accepted, it will take a maximum of 30 days to prepare your digital ID under ordinary procedure.

If you have ordered your digital ID to be received abroad, factor in a longer time, as transport of documents to a foreign representation of the Republic of Estonia takes more time.

In matters pertaining to the document reaching the foreign representation and claiming the document, contact the foreign representation to which you ordered the document.

Check the current status of your digital ID application.

Application form

Fill in the application form on a computer.

On the form, specify the service office or Estonian foreign representation where you wish to receive the document.
