International Sanctions

International sanctions are a foreign policy tool, which aim to preserve or restore peace, prevent conflicts, strengthen international security, strengthen and support democracy, the rule of law, human rights, and fight against terrorism.

Estonia considers all international sanctions, issued by the European Union and the United Nations Security Council, legally binding and consequently fully enforces them.

More information on different types of restrictive measures, including arms embargoes, asset freezes, restrictions on admission, and economic sanctions, can be found here.

Detailed information about EU and UN restrictive measures (sanctions) in force can be found at the EU Sanctions Map.

For further details of embargoes please visit EU Official Journal and UN Security Council Regulations.

The enforcement of international sanctions by Estonia is regulated by the International Sanctions Act. For a full list of the competent authorities in Estonia, click here.
