Estonia: Digital Nomad Visa

Remote workers, self-employed people, and freelancers can spend 1 year in Estonia with the Digital Nomad Visa.



During your year in Estonia, you can explore its unique Baltic culture, gourmet food scene, and expansive forests untouched by mass tourism, as well as Tallinn’s well-preserved medieval architecture. 

Estonia is sometimes called the most online society due to its broad acceptance of digital technology in day-to-day life, such as its burgeoning tech scene, widespread Wi-Fi, extensive online portals for business and government services, and eResidency for digital identities and business. This makes it an ideal environment to work online or start a business.

With its straightforward application, Estonia’s Digital Nomad Visa may be the easiest way for remote workers to spend a year in Europe.
