An asymptomatic person may travel to Estonia from third countries without self-isolation if they are arriving from a country with an infection rate that is equal to or less than 75 per 100,000 inhabitants.

It is possible to travel to Estonia from the following countries, based on the list of countries included in the EU Council recommendation from which vaccinated people can travel to the European Union for any purpose:

  • Albania
  • Australia
  • Hong Kong
  • Israel
  • Japan
  • Lebanon
  • Macau
  • New Zealand
  • Rwanda

Vaccine and testing certificates

From June 10, Estonia is using three types of EU Digital COVID Certificates that are in line with common EU standards: the EU Digital COVID Vaccination Certificate, EU Digital COVID Recovery Certificate and EU Digital COVID Test Certificate.

Compared to the previous certificate, the new certificates contain QR-codes that are readable only with a special application.

In view of this, please be aware that when crossing the border, it is strongly advised to download a new certificate from your Patient Portal account. Old certificates may not be accepted on the border.
