There are application requirements to obtain the DNV in Estonia:
- you are able to work fully remotely and perform your duties using technologies;
- you have a contract with a foreign company or work as a freelancer mostly with non-Estonian clients;
- you can prove that your monthly income meets the current threshold of €3504 for six months before applying for DNV.
Matching this, feel free to fill in the DNV application form online on the governmental website
. Then print and sign the application, collect all required documents, and visit the nearest Estonian embassy or consulate personally. You can find the list of documents to provide here
When your application is accepted and your visa is ready, you will be notified by an embassy. During the second visit to the embassy, you'll verify your identity and freely pick your visa up. Also, remember that you can apply for DNV right in Estonia at a local Police and Border Guard office. So if you have no Estonian embassy in your country or it's complicated to visit one, you can apply for DNV from Estonia, using a common tourist visa.
