Registering Your Place of Residence
You will not have access to Estonian health insurance, social support and the right to use many other public services without having your data in the register. So, when moving, always update your address in the register as well.
Things to bring when registering your place of residence:
- A residence notice (available in Estonian and English) – you can fill it beforehand or on the spot.
- Your personal ID or a photocopy of the ID if the documents are sent by mail.
- A copy of a document proving your residence and the right to use these premises (your tenancy agreement, for example). If the property you register to live at, belongs to multiple owners, you must have every owners written consent.
If you own an Estonian ID card, you can register your place of residence online via the citizen portal eesti.ee.
Read more about registering your place of residence on the website of the Estonian Ministry of the Interior.
