Principles of entry in Estonia from 17 March 2020

Estonia can be entered by Estonian citizens and residents, including people with the temporary residence permit or right of residence:

•       Estonian citizens who are holders of Estonian passport;
•       Estonian citizens who are holders of Estonian ID card;
•       Citizens of the EU who are holders of the Estonian ID card;
•       People who are holders of the Estonian alien’s passport (so-called grey passport);
•       Foreign citizens who have the Estonian residence card. For instance, people:

  1.      1.  who study at an Estonian vocational or higher education institution
  2.      2.  who work in Estonia
  3.      3.  who are married to an Estonian citizen or resident
  4.      4.  who have a company in Estonia.

Estonia cannot be entered by people who:

•       come to Estonia visa-free, with a Schengen visa or Estonian visa:

  1.      1.  for short-time work;
  2.      2.  for a tourist trip, for instance, to see the Old Town in Tallinn;
  3.      3.  to visit relatives or acquaintances.

Estonia may be entered only by foreigners without symptoms who:

•       are directly related with the transport of goods and raw materials, for instance, drivers and loaders;

  1.      1.  provide healthcare services and other services needed for the solution of the emergency situation;
  2.      2.  are employees of foreign diplomatic representations and consular posts or their family members or foreigners who come to Estonia in connection with international military cooperation.

As an exception, the Police and Border Guard Board may allow foreigners without symptoms into Estonia:

•       who are direct descendants (i.e. children and their children) or ascendants (parents and their parents) or the spouse of an Estonian citizen or a person who is a holder of an Estonian ID card or residence card;
•       in case the entry into the state is justified on account of exceptional circumstances, for instance, in case a mother with a visa and her child are located in different countries.

 

The Police and Border Guard Board asks people to consider possible delays at border crossing, as everybody is asked to provide information regarding their travel journey and possible contacts with people infected.

People entering Estonia will be asked to provide information about their travel journey, travel companions, possible contacts with the potential infected and whether they have any symptoms that might indicate a viral infection. 

Data is collected from people entering Estonia through checkpoints on the eastern border in Narva, Koidula and Luhamaa, as well as Tallinn airport, harbours and border crossing points on the Estonian-Latvian border in Valga and Ikla. People will be asked to fill in a form, and if necessary, to provide additional information.

Additional checks may prolong the process of crossing the border, however, they are necessary in order to protect people from the virus.

Police and Border Guard Board asks people who travel across the border often to avoid doing that where possible. This will help reduce the risk of the virus spreading and help reduce queues in border points.

Data is only collected from people entering Estonia. In order to save time, forms can be printed and filled in before crossing the border.

Partners from the Estonian Tax and Customs Board and Estonian Defence League are involved in the activities.

 

As of May 20, 2019, it is no longer possible to pay by credit card when using the call center's services.

We remind you that in order pay for the services by phone, the call has to be made using an Estonian phone number and to have enough payment limit. It is still possible to make a reservation and pay by credit card as before, via the Internet and at the border crossing area.

 

ROAD TOLL WILL BE IMPLEMENTED IN ESTONIA AS OF 1.01.2018.

From 1 January 2018 Estonia will introduce a road toll, similarly to other member states of the European Union. The road toll will be time-based, enabling drivers to use the network of public roads within a fixed period of time. Road toll is not dependent on the number of kilometres driven.

The toll rate depends on the total weight of the heavy goods vehicle (category N2 and N3) and its trailer, the number of axles, and the emission class of the heavy goods vehicle. The charges will be levied on trucks registered both in Estonia and abroad. The toll rate will depend on the gross weight and the number of axles of the truck and its trailer, as well as on the emission class of the vehicle.

Road toll should be paid before proceeding to the road. Payments can be conducted 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. The right to use the road will be valid after making the payment. Road toll can be paid via webpage www.roadtoll.ee/eng from 20 December 2017.

ROAD TOLL SUPERVISION

If the road toll has not been paid, the supervisory authority has the right to fine both the driver and the owner of the heavy goods vehicle.

The driver is not allowed to continue driving unless the road toll has been paid for the heavy goods vehicle.
