Upon arrival in Estonia all foreign travel documents must meet the following requirements:

Persons who submit a passport to an Estonian foreign representation for obtaining a visa must take into account that:

  • the passport has to be recognized by Estonia for traveling to Estonia (please refer to the list of recognized documents by countries)
  • the passport must be valid at least three months after the expiration of the requested visa period
  • the passport must contain at least two blank pages
  • persons 15 years and older must possess their own travel document with photo
  • children 7 to 15 years of age, if entered into a parent's passport, must have his/her photo in the parent's passport. Children under the age of 7, if entered into a parent's passport, need not have a photo in the parent's passport.

Failure to meet these requirements will result in the visa application being considered incomplete and it will not be processed.

Persons not requiring a visa shall present a passport at the border crossing upon entry into Estonia. A child 7-15 years old, if entered into a parent's passport, must have their photo in the parent's passport.

A visa application for a child travelling without his or her parent must be accompanied by the parents' notarised letter of consent confirming that the child may travel alone or accompanied by a specified person.
