Project Description:
The Republic of Estonia is the first country to offer e-Residency, a transnational digital identity available to anyone in the world interested in administering a location-independent business online. e-Residency also enables secure and convenient digital services that facilitate credibility and trust online. e-Residency does not confer citizenship, tax residency, residence or right of entry to Estonia or to the European Union. But it does create a unique opportunity to create a new set of global services that can be used remotely.
