In this article, we explain what the “Pick-up locations” of the e-Residency kit are. We also provide you with a list of cities where you can find them and some tips for the delivery process.
What are the Pick-up locations for the e-Residency pack
They are the official points where you will receive your e-Resident kit. Most of them are Estonian embassies or consulates, but not all embassies or consulates can act as Pick-up locations, only those included in the list below.
When applying in the e-Residency program you will have to choose one of these locations, that will be “your official Pick-up location”.

How is the delivery process at those locations?
Once your e-Residency application has been approved, it can take 2 to 5 weeks for the kit to reach your official delivery point.
Once the e-Residency kit reaches your Pick-up location, you will receive an email with instructions on how to pick it up.
We recommend that you don’t call the embassy to schedule your visit until you have received this email. Please check all of your mailboxes (including the “spam” box) to make sure it does not get lost.
Before going there, call or send them an email to make an appointment and make sure they are expecting you.
You have a period of 6 months to make the appointment and have your kit delivered.
Due to travel restrictions around the world, Estonia allows you to extend the delivery period beyond 6 months. To do this, get in touch with your official Pick-up location, explain your situation to them, and they will extend this period.
If you want to change the Pick-up location to a different one, you must contact the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs by email. The email address is the following: firstname.lastname@example.org
