What is e-Residency?
Estonia is the first country to offer e-Residency, a government-issued digital identity and status that provides access to Estonia’s e-services and transparent business environment. With an e-Residency digital identity card, anyone can establish and manage an EU company entirely online and sign all documents digitally.

Change the pickup location of the e-Residency digital identity card
When granted e-Residency, you will be notified by the pickup location when the e-Residency kit is ready for collection. If you wish to change the pickup location from an Estonian foreign representation to another official pickup location after you have received the aforementioned notification, you need to contact:
- the foreign representation of the Republic of Estonia you chose as a pickup location during applying and
- the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
to submit an application to change the pickup location.
You have originally requested the e-Residency digital identity card to be delivered to the Estonian Embassy in London but have meanwhile decided to receive the document in another country or in Estonia.
Changing the pickup location is a paid service and will take additional time. State fee must be paid (and received) before the change of pickup location will be initiated.
The state fee can be paid at the embassy or by bank transfer. Requisite information of the payment of state fee is as follows:
