Applying for passport under ordinary procedure

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

Applying for passport under expedited procedure

It will take a maximum of 2 working days to prepare a passport applied for under expedited procedure. The time until the passport is issued starts on the working day after the application is submitted.

Applying for a passport abroad

If you have ordered your passport 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.

There is a fee for changing the place where you wish to claim a passport that has already been sent to the foreign representation you initially specified. For more information, consult the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website.

I will claim my passport myself

To claim your new document, bring your old passport.

I will send a person I have authorized to claim the passport

The document will be issued to your representative only if the application was submitted in a service office or foreign representation of the Republic of Estonia and the authorization was submitted already upon submission of the application for the document. If you have authorized someone else to claim your passport, they must bring with them their own valid Estonian identity document and your old passport.
