Attention entrepreneurs in or near Barcelona, Munich, and Istanbul!

Have you been thinking about applying for e-Residency but so far had no time or resources to pick up your digital identity card in distant capitals?

Well now is your chance…

Apply for e-Residency between 20 January and 15 March 2020 and you can opt to pick up your e-Residency digital identity card and documents at one of the following three temporary pick-up points only within the dates indicated:

  • Barcelona: Tuesday 5 May — Thursday 7 May 2020
  • Munich: Tuesday 12 May — Thursday 14 May 2020
  • Istanbul: Tuesday 19 May — Thursday 21 May 2020

The exact address and possible times of pick-up will be communicated to applicants opting for one of these cities when they are informed their digital identity cards are ready.

Of course, the regular pick-up points at Estonian embassies and representative offices will continue to issue e-Residency digital identity cards as usual.

This activity is part of the Estonian government’s strategy to improve access to e-Residency to entrepreneurs across the globe. Consider it a test run for more similar activities in other locations in the future. This project has been undertaken in cooperation with our Marketplace partner Xolo.

Stay up-to-date with news about other temporary pick-up points in the future here on the blog and on our social media channels: Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

First time hearing about e-Residency? Welcome to the community!

E-Residency is a digital identity and status offered by the Republic of Estonia to people living outside its borders. It provides virtual access to Estonia’s e-governance platform and services and its open and transparent business environment. E-residents can start an EU-based company online, digitally sign and encrypt documents, and run their business low cost and paperless from anywhere in the world. E-Residency does not provide any rights of travel, physical residency or citizenship to Estonia or the EU.
