Visa regulations

Estonia is a member of the Schengen Agreement and all the rules apply. A visa granted for any Schengen member is valid in all other Schengen countries.

To enter the Republic of Estonia, EU/EEA citizens need only a valid identity card, whereas citizens of many, but not all, countries need a valid passport. Information about the visa requirements may be found on the web page of the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the topic: Who does not need a visa to visit Estonia?

Participants should contact the nearest Estonian Embassy or Consulate for details or questions regarding current passport and visa requirements.
