The Estonian ID Card
To obtain the Estonian ID card, go to the Police and Border Guard Board office in person within a month after registering your place of residence.
Your ID card will function as an identification document. It’s also your a gateway to simplicity: you can use it for many e-services and for online authentication.
What to bring with you when applying for an ID card?
- An application form – you can complete it on screen or print it out and fill it in.
- A document proving your identity
- One colour photo measuring 40×50 mm. Most offices have a booth where you can take a photo for free (apart from the Otepää and Elva offices)

The ID card is issued within 30 days after the application is received.
