The emergency situation in Estonia, introduced to combat the spread COVID-19 (Coronavirus), ended on Sunday, May 17.
The Embassy will continue with alternative working arrangements until further notice. For Irish citizens requiring assistance or advice in a genuine consular emergency, the Embassy Duty Officer can be contacted on +372 5690 8340. We will continue to deal with all other queries via email.
The Government of Ireland continues to advise against all non-essential travel overseas. You can find detailed and up to date information on the Overview Tab on the Travel Advice page of our website.
We encourage citizens to download our Travel Wise App which helps Irish citizens to stay safe and informed while travelling.
In addition, you can register your contact details on Citizens’ Registration, which allows us to contact you and provide assistance in the event of an unforeseen crisis or family emergency while you are overseas: https://www.dfa.ie/travel/citizens-registration
We advise all Irish citizens when travelling abroad to remain vigilant and follow the instructions and advice from the local authorities.
From June 1, the Estonian government reopened the borders to passengers (with no symptoms) arriving from the EU/EEA, Schengen and the UK. However, anyone arriving from countries that have a coronavirus infection rate above 15 will be subject to compulsory quarantine for 14 days. Information on countries and quarantine requirements is updated every Friday and can be found here.
Given the current situation caused by the escalation of the COVID-19 crisis in Ireland please be aware that only applications for visas for essential travel to Ireland will be considered at the moment.
We look forward to returning to normal services as soon as we can.
