E-Residency Pilot Program Proves Popular In USA, Finland and Canada ({{commentsTotal}})


Although the e-residency project, which offers non-residents access to all digital services in Estonia, will not become active for another few months, the test registration launched on Monday amassed more than 5,600 new potential "e-residents" in its first 24 hours.

More than one-third of those who have registered so far are based in the United States, reports Eesti Päevaleht.

"All EU citizens and people from third countries, who are not residing in Estonia, can apply for e-residency from December onward," said Margit Ratnik from the Police and Border Guard Board (PPA).
