Now that you’re here, the first order of business is to apply for your Estonian personal identification number. Your Estonian ID code is a unique 11 digit number that is used for identification and will allow you to access Estonia’s social services. This includes health care, free language courses, and free public transport (Tallinn only).
- Visit a local government services office in Tallinn or Tartu. You can also visit the International House of Estonia but an appointment is required.
- Prepare the application form and be sure to bring your passport along.
- The appointment will take approximately 30 minutes and you’ll receive your code immediately.
