Thanks to the Estonian e-Residency, non-Estonian citizens can obtain a digital identity.
e-Residency is an innovative tool to foster entrepreneurship in the Baltic republic, making life easier for foreigners. Estonia is now a country without borders.
How Estonian e-residency works
Those who are accepted for e-Residency will be sent a smart card, a USB reader and software to their residential address.
The smart card contains all the information about the owner, stored in the integrated microprocessor. The smart card holders can access many online services and manage their business activities for themselves.

A case study
Marc is a British professional translator. Although he’s satisfied with his business he was worried about the consequences of Brexit. In light of this, he decided to incorporate a new company in Europe but didn’t want to waste time and money.
