Estonia’s e-Residency is a major hit with startup entrepreneurs

Estonia is the first country to offer e-Residency, a government-issued digital ID, available to anyone in the world.  Estonia ranks 1st for tax competitiveness and 12th for ease of doing business.

E-Residency is a government-issued digital identity that gives you the freedom to run a global, EU-company online from anywhere in the world.

  • Start an Estonian company 100% online from anywhere in the world
  • Start and manage EU company 100% online. Be the full owner of your company. No local director needed

All e-residents receive background checks from the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board before they are handed their secure government-issued digital identity. Key data about their companies established in Estonia is then publically available in official records, such as taxation and the identity of owners.
