Is this background check regarded with the e-residency program?

To clarify, this is not a background check related to obtaining an Estonian e-residency.

E-residency is a transnational digital identity designed to facilitate location-independent business administration. It provides access to secure and convenient digital services that enhance credibility and trust online. Please note that e-residency does not confer citizenship, tax residency, residence, or right of entry to Estonia or the European Union. It is not a visa or residence permit, and the e-resident digital-ID card does not function as a physical identification or travel document.

Applicants for e-residency are subject to a state fee. Depending on the selected pick-up location, additional fees may apply. If an office in Estonia is chosen as the pick-up location, there is no additional fee. If a foreign representation of Estonia is selected, an additional fee of 20 euros will be charged upon application. If the pick-up location in Seoul, South Korea; Tokyo, Japan; or San Francisco, USA, an additional service fee will apply, which must be paid directly to the service provider upon collecting the document.

Please note that the Police and Border Guard Board conducts background checks on all e-residency applicants. More detailed information about applicable fees for each location is displayed upon selecting a specific pick-up location. The laws and regulations governing e-residency applications can be found in the Identity Documents Act and the State Fees Act. The terms and conditions for the use of personal identification documents of the Republic of Estonia can be accessed here.
