Acquiring Estonian ID card
Estonian ID card is related and connected with famous Estonian e-residency
Estonian ID card can be used as a national ID card for legal travel within the EU but from a business perspective more important is that it can be used for digital signing. As a digital signature equals a notarized signature, it gives you a possibility to communicate with government institutions and also sign documents without being in Estonia.
In order to apply for an ID card, one has to have a permanent address in Estonia.
We can help with that.

- After the background check has been completed, you will be notified by email whether your application is approved
- If you are granted e-Residency, you will be invited to pick up your digital ID card from your chosen location
E-Residency is not tax residency (as well as not being citizenship or the right to physically reside in Estonia or the EU).
Not all e-residents contribute taxes to Estonia, but when they do it is based on what e-Residency has enabled them to do (by creating a company that is legitimately tax resident here under international rules) and not just because they are an e-resident.
E-Residency is also definitely not a way to avoid paying taxes.
Estonian tax authorities (government) have a contact e-mail, but be careful to send Your too open questions there :), email is firstname.lastname@example.org
