To attract entrepreneurs, startups and digital nomads, Estonia launched several incentives, for example, the program e-Residency, there digital nomad visa y there startup visa. The e-Residency of Estonia is a program that allows non-Estonians to have access to Estonian services, such as incorporation of companies, processing of payments and taxes. The program offers the e-resident an identity card that can be used to sign documents digitally. The program is aimed at entrepreneurs who do not depend on location. However, it is important to note that this incentive does not offer the right to travel or live in Estonia.

The digital nomad visa allows remote workers to live in Estonia and who work legally for their contractor or for their own company registered abroad.

In addition, the Estonian startup visa helps EU founders expand their startup in Estonia and facilitates the process for startups in Estonia to hire talent from outside the EU. We are going to deal with these three incentives in more detail and in the next publications.
