Choose your bank

  1. E-residents can bank with LHV, SEB, and Swedbank; more banking partners will be added soon. 
  1. Visit the bank office in person and apply for a bank account. The bank will want to know how you are connected to Estonia and how you plan to use the account. You will need to bring your e-residency card along.

Starting from the beginning of 2017 it will be possible to open up a bank account online with an e-residency card.

    Hello, I'm in possession of an e-resident card, I would like to open a bank account in Estonia but unfortunately I cannot go to Estonia at the moment. You said that it was soon possible to open a bank account from abroad (Autumn), but it turns out that the winter is fast approaching ... Could you tell me the exact date of the launch please ? If necessary keep me running...
    Thank you very much,

    Hey guys, 

    Apologies for the late response.

    The bank account opening will be possible in the beginning of 2017, can't give you an exact date just yet, it has unfortunately been delayed by software developments by the banks.

    Tried to open the bank account at SEB.

    Received an email that I need to visit the bank personally with documents that prove my connection with Estonia (work, family, study etc). And even after this bank will be deciding to open me an account or not for 10 days.


    I thought e-Residency card will do things simpler. Seems not.
