What do e-⁠residents think?

"I just need my laptop and Wi-Fi, and I am connected. Everything can be done with digital signing, with basically no papers at all. I didn’t print or sign one paper for years."

"E-Residency, with their partners, provided me over the years with unparalleled services and support, so I was able to focus on my work."
