First time hearing about e-Residency? Welcome to the community!

E-Residency is a digital identity and status offered by the Republic of Estonia to people living outside its borders. It provides virtual access to Estonia’s e-governance platform and services and its open and transparent business environment. E-residents can start an EU-based company online, digitally sign and encrypt documents, and run their business low cost and paperless from anywhere in the world. E-Residency does not provide any rights of travel, physical residency or citizenship to Estonia or the EU.
