Last updated: April 16, 2024

In order to use Xolo Leap, you need to become an e-resident.

e-Residency is generally available online to applicants aged 18 years or older, who’ve never been convicted of a criminal felony, and at the sole discretion of the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board.

The e-resident digital-ID can be issued to a foreigner who has links with the country of Estonia or a reasonable interest in using public e-services in Estonia, and who:

  • Is not a foreigner currently residing in Estonia with a residence permit or the right of residence;

  • Is not a foreigner currently staying in Estonia under the International Military Cooperation Act, and holding an identity card or residence card issued by the Police and Border Guard Board.

The application consists of the following:

  • Your name and personal information

  • A scanned passport photo.

  • A scanned copy of your government-issued ID.

  • A minimum of one paragraph describing your interest and motivations behind applying for e-Residency.

  • Payment of the state fee of €120 via Visa or Mastercard.

  • Your desired pickup location: one of 38 Estonian embassies and consulates around the world, or an Estonian Police and Border Guard Board station. See more about pickup locations here

Visit the Estonian e-Residency site and start your application.
