E-residency most popular among Finns and Russians

As of mid-January, Estonia had issued e-residency to 463 of the 650 applicants. The number of e-residents should be above 500 by now.

Estonian interior minister Hanno Pevkur said that the largest number of new e-residents came from Finland (239), followed by Russia (118), Latvia (39), the US (36) and the UK (24).

“We have also received applications from Venezuela, Sri Lanka and Mexico. It has gone rather well. Once we start to issue the digital ID cards in embassies, the number should increase much faster,” he said.

People who wish to apply for e-residency must currently travel to Estonia for a short period of time.
