To check the validity of your digital identity document, please go to the validation website of the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board, and enter the number of your e-Residency digital ID-card.
In case your ID-card was issued within the previous 24h, it might not be fully functional yet. It normally takes 1 business day to activate the certificates, but in some cases it can take up to 5 days.
You can also search for a program called "ID-card Utility" from your computer and open it. You’ll see information about:
If your smart card reader can read your ID-card and the card itself is valid
Validity of the authentication certificates
Validity of the signature certificates
The ID-card utility can also be used for changing your PIN1 and PIN2 codes, updating all certificates if requested and installing updates to the program itself.
