Estonia Visa FAQs

  • add What is an Estonia Schengen visa?

    An Estonia Schengen visa is a special kind of visa which allows you to travel among all the Schengen countries including Estonia for a maximum period of upto 90 days. This is a traveller’s dream where with one visa you can travel to any of the other 25 Schengen countries along with Estonia.

  • add The Schengen Visa is valid for which countries?

    A Schengen Visa (issued by a consulate or embassy of a Schengen State) is valid for all 26 States of the Schengen Area (including the European territory of Estonia), unless it is marked otherwise on the visa sticker. So you do not need another visa to enter or stay in the European territory of Estonia. However, you must be in possession of documentary evidence for the reasons of your stay and your means of support. Schengen Area comprises of the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

  • add How long can I stay in the Schengen area on the basis of my visa?

    The Schengen Visa is a short stay visa and takes the form of a sticker affixed to your passport. The definition of “short stay” is a stay of "90 days in any 180 days period". This means that the total duration of stay is of maximum 90 days in any period of 180 days. The precise length of validity of your Schengen Visa is indicated on the visa sticker under the heading “Duration of visit”. With a single-entry visa you can enter the Schengen area only once. This is indicated on the visa sticker under the heading "Number of entries" by "1". A two-entry or a multiple-entry visa allows for two or several entries during the validity of the Schengen Visa. This is indicated on the visa sticker by "02" or "MULT" under the heading "Number of entries".

  • add Will all Schengen Visas be granted for 90 days?

    No, not necessarily all Schengen Visas will be granted for 90 days. You may get the Schengen Visa only for the number of days that you present in your travel itinerary and your flight & hotel bookings

  • add Can I apply again for a Schengen Visa if my application has been refused earlier?

    You may appeal against this decision. The decision to refuse a Schengen visa and the reasons for the refusal are notified using a standard form that is handed out by the Member State's consulate that refused the visa. The notification of the refusal must include the reasons, on which the refusal were based, and the procedures and deadlines for submitting an appeal. You are free to re-apply again if your application has been refused earlier. However, it is recommended that you take note of the reasons for the earlier refusal before submitting a new application and make amendments, where necessary.
    The visa fee is not refunded if the visa is refused. The visa fee covers the cost of the examination of the visa application.

  • add What is the Schengen Visa cover letter?

    The Schengen Visa cover letter is a letter which summarizes your intent to travel to a country that is part of the Schengen area. In your cover letter you should explain:

    • the purpose of your trip
    • when and where you intend to travel
    • how your trip is going to be funded
    • day-by-day itinerary for your trip
    • duration of the trip
  • add Is it possible to extend my Schengen Visa while in Estonia?

    You cannot extend your short-stay visa while in Estonia except in special circumstances, and exceeding your permitted period of stay is considered an act of illegality or criminality. Instead, you must return to your home country within the permitted period of stay and apply for another Estonia Visa if necessary.

  • add Can I leave the Schengen area and return again with my Schengen visa?

    Schengen visas may allow for a single-entry or multiple entries. With a single-entry visa you can enter the Schengen area only once. This is indicated on the visa sticker by "01". With a visa allowing for two or multiple entries you may enter twice or several times during the validity of the visa.

  • add If my Estonia short-stay multiple entry Schengen Visa is valid for a year, how long can I remain in the Estonia territory?

    A short-stay Schengen Visa allows you to enter and stay in an Estonia territory for a maximum period of 90 days within a period of six months.

  • add How long before the start of the intended visit should I apply for a Schengen Visa?

    You may only submit your Schengen visa application 90 days before your date of departure. We recommend that you apply at least 20 working days before the date you wish to depart as certain types of travel purpose may take longer than usual to process. For instance, the processing time of your Schengen Visa Application will take between 10-12 working days from your appointment date.

  • add How long does it take to obtain an Estonia Visa?

    Typically, an Estonia Visa (Schengen Visa) takes anywhere from 5 to 15 days to process in the Estonian Embassy/Consulate. The processing time for a Estonia Visa is dependent on several factors and can change without notice at the consulate's discretion.

  • add How can I check the status of my Estonia Visa application?

    Applicants can check the status of Estonia visa application online using the Estonia VFS Reference number and Last Name. Kindly visit the Track Your Application section of the Estonian VFS website.

  • add Will I get my visa at the end of the process?

    The issuance or refusal of an Estonia visa is the sole prerogative of The Embassy/Consulate. The Estonia Visa Application Centre cannot influence this decision in any way.

  • add Is it mandatory for me to take an appointment for an Estonia Visa?

    Yes, an appointment is mandatory for Estonia Visa in order to provide your biometrics and submit your visa documents.

  • add I have a valid long stay visa/residence permit for a country that is part of the Schengen area. Do I need another visa to travel to other Schengen states?

    No. A long stay visa or a residence permit issued by a Schengen State allows you to travel or stay in other Schengen States, while respecting the maximum duration of a “short stay” (a stay of "90 days in any 180 day period")

  • add My family is also applying for a Estonia Visa, how many appointments should we make?

    Every member of the family needs an individual appointment.

  • add I am traveling to multiple Schengen countries. From which Consulate should I apply for my Schengen Visa?

    Schengen Visa must be applied from the Embassy / Consulate of the country where you will be staying for maximum number of days. If your stay has equal number of days in each country then you must apply to the Embassy / Consulate of the country which would serve as the first port of entry.

  • add Can I leave the Schengen area and return again with my Schengen Visa?

    Schengen Visas may allow for a single-entry or multiple entries. With a single-entry visa you can enter the Schengen area only once. This is indicated on the visa sticker by "01". With a visa allowing for two or multiple entries you may enter twice or several times during the validity of the Schengen Visa.

  • add What is the difference between a single-entry Schengen Visa and a multiple-entry Schengen Vis

    According to the EU, a single-entry Schengen Visa allows entry to the Schengen area only once, meaning you are not permitted to re-enter the Schengen Area after leaving, while a multiple-entry Schengen Visa allows multiple entries into the Schengen Area within the visa’s validity period (90 days total within 180-day period).

  • add Do I have to present any other document at the Schengen external borders apart from my travel document with the Schengen Visa?

    The short-stay visa does not automatically entitle you to enter the Schengen area. At the border (or during other controls) you may have to show the visa but also provide additional documentation, for example; sufficient evidence that you have sufficient means to cover the stay and the return trip. It is therefore recommended that you carry with you copies of the documents which you presented when applying for the Schengen visa (e.g. letters of invitation, travel confirmations, other documents stating the purpose of your stay).

  • add Do I have to apply in person for the Schengen Visa?

    Yes, applications by mail will not be accepted. The Schengen visa application should be presented in person because biometrical data must be recorded.

  • add Why is personal appearance mandatory for Estonia Visa?

    As from 2nd November 2015 following the introduction of the Visa Information System (VIS), all Schengen visa applicants in India have to appear in person in order to provide biometric data (fingerprints and digital photography). The photograph can be digitally taken at the time of the application or scanned from an existing one. For subsequent applications within the 5 years the fingerprints can be copied from the previous application file in the VIS. In case of reasonable doubt regarding the identity of the applicant, the consulate will again collect fingerprints within the 5 year period specified above. Furthermore, the applicant may request that they be collected if, at the time when the application is lodged, it cannot be immediately confirmed that the fingerprints were collected within this 5 years period.

  • add What is the role of VFS?

    VFS Global Services Pvt Ltd (VFS) is the Service Delivery Provider for the Embassy of Estonia in New Delhi. The role of VFS is to accept visa applications and to dispatch passports and documents back to clients, on behalf of the Embassy of Estonia. VFS does not play any part in or influence the outcome of your visa application.

  • add Do I need to provide travel insurance for my Visa application?

    Yes. Applicants should prove that they are in possession of adequate and valid travel insurance to cover any expenses which might arise in connection with repatriation for medical reasons, urgent medical attention and/or emergency hospital treatment or death, during their stay(s) on the territory of the Schengen Member States. The insurance should be valid throughout the territory of the Member States and cover the entire period of the person’s intended stay or transit. The minimum coverage must be EUR 30000.

  • add What are the Schengen Visa travel insurance requirements?

    Your travel Insurance plan for a Schengen Visa must meet the following requirements:

    • Minimum coverage of 30,000 Euros (approx. USD $34,000)
    • Coverage for repatriation for medical reasons
    • Coverage for emergency medical treatment
    • Coverage for expenses resulting from your death
    • Coverage for the entire period of your intended stay
    • Valid in all Schengen Area countries
  • add Can you process the Travel Insurance for me?

    Even though Travel Insurance is a mandatory requirement for processing Schengen Visa, you are strongly advised to purchase a health / travel insurance to secure yourself as medical treatment can be very expensive in the Schengen country. Your travel insurance offers protection against unexpected emergencies on international travel such as coverage of medical expenses, flight delay and cancellations, passport and baggage loss or personal accident. For financial safety and security on your international trip we highly recommend you to purchase travel insurance and avail our special offer.

Estonia travel guide

The smallest and arguably most scenic of the three Baltic states (which also includes Latvia and Lithuania), Estonia is a wildly beautiful land of pristine forests, bio diverse wetlands and remote offshore islands; natural assets that offer a spectacular contrast to the brooding, gothic aesthetic of its medieval capital, Tallinn. Read more

The country is packed with picturesque towns and villages, stunning scenery and rich history and culture. Estonia is a popular destination for Russians and Finns, and nowadays more and more Europeans head over to explore this tiny spec of land... The country is very cheap, and with all of the other draws this makes it your perfect next city trip.

Places to visit in Estonia

1. Tallinn

The most popular place to visit in Estonia is Tallinn, the capital and the hub of medieval architecture. The heart of the city is called Toompea, a hill that retains a historic atmosphere thanks to cobblestone streets and 15th century buildings. The area is amazingly preserved and accessible on foot. From the top of Toompea, you can look out over much of the Old City. Some highlights of the Old City include the bustling shops on Viru Street, the 14th century Town Hall and the opulent 19th century Alexander Nevsky Cathedral.

2. Tartu

The city of Tartu is considered the intellectual hub of the country, thanks to the impressive and well-known University of Tartu. Between the university and the fact that Tartu is the oldest city in the nation, this city is clearly an interesting destination. Its handsome centre is lined with classically designed 18th-century buildings, many of which have been put to innovative uses. One of the coolest attractions in Tartu is the soup neighbourhood. In the soup neighbourhood, every street is named after soup ingredients like potatoes, beans and peas. Old wooden houses line these streets, which are just next to the Emajõgi River.

3. Lahemaa National Park

One of the most popular national parks in Estonia is Lahemaa. Since it is just an hour’s drive from the capital, it is the ideal day trip. Viru Raba, or Viru Bog, is a must-see part of the park. Trees poke from the swampy ground, and there is a definite ethereal quality. To make it easy to explore Viru Bog, there is a 5-km (3-mile) boardwalk that is usually dry, keeping you out of the water but close enough to admire the scenery. In the middle of the park is Sagadi Village, a fascinating spot where you can tour Sagadi Manor and learn more about the culture and history of the region.

4. Saaremaa

The largest Estonian island is called Saaremaa, and it is located in the Baltic Sea. The island has an 8,000-year-old history, and was ruled by Danes, Swedes, Germans and Russians in that time. Today, most visitors spend their time in the island’s capital city of Kuressaare. In Kuressaare, you can explore the completely intact medieval castle. You can tour the castle and the grounds, which now serve as home to the Regional Museum of Saaremaa. If you’re interested in hiking, sightseeing, bird watching or photography, then Saaremaa’s Sõrve Peninsula is a spectacularly scenic destination to explore.

5. Parnu

Where the Parnu River meets the Gulf of Riga, you’ll find the coastal resort city of Parnu. Parnu is known as the summer capital, because it is where so many Estonians choose to take their summer vacations. The biggest reason to come to Parnu is the beach, which boasts fine, white sand and gorgeous dunes. The beach promenade runs along the shore and helps to create the traditional coastal resort feel in the city. Even after the sun sets for the day, lighting along the promenade ensures that people are still walking and enjoying the coastal scenery. If a rainy afternoon appears, join the locals at Vee Park, a popular indoor water park in Parnu.

6. Narva Castle

The city of Narva is the easternmost destination in the country, not to mention the entire European Union. The city was heavily bombed during World War II, but thankfully the beautiful and historic Narva Castle still stands. The castle, which is also known as Hermann Castle, was built in the 13th century but the Danes as a residence for the Danish King’s vice-Regent. Inside the castle is the Narva Museum as well as a collection of handicrafts workshops where you can watch and even learn the skills used in medieval times. The castle tower overlooks the Ivangorod castle on the Russian side of the river.

7. Hiiumaa

When most people picture Estonia, they don’t picture islands. However, Hiiumaa is just one of several islands off the coast and in the Baltic Sea. To reach Hiiumaa, you can take a plane from Tallinn or a ferry from multiple coastal cities on the mainland. Equally loved by surfers, sailors, and hikers, Hiiumaa is great place to visit for those looking for peace and quiet. The island also boasts of many interesting lighthouses. The 19th century cast iron Tahkuna Lighthouse is the tallest in the country. The Kõpu Lighthouse, however, is far older. Dating back to the 15th century, Kõpu is one of the oldest lighthouses on the planet.

8. Rakvere Castle

Northern Estonia is home to Rakvere, a city where humans have lived for nearly 1,500 years. The city’s biggest attractions are Rakvere Castle, which was constructed in the 16th century. The castle has become a kind of medieval theme park, and costumed visitors and staff wander the grounds. You can watch knights polishing their armour, see an alchemist’s workshop and tour the ancient wine cellar. In the castle’s Shenkenberg Tavern, you can even dine on classic medieval dishes. Visiting the castle is an unforgettable way to bring history to life.

9. Soomaa National Park

Soomaa National Park is a fascinating destination. Primarily a peat bog formed as a result of glacier melt from more than 10,000 years ago, Soomaa National Park is cut by several beautiful rivers. The best way to explore Soomaa is with a canoe. You rent canoes or join a self-guided tour, and as you paddle you’ll be able to spot deer, elk, boars, beavers, golden eagles and more. Canoeing is especially popular in the spring, or what locals call the fifth season. During this time of year, water levels rise substantially, and boats are sometimes the only way to get around.

10. Viljandi

In Southern Estonia is the small city of Viljandi. The city has a rich history that is nearly 2,600 years old, and plenty of historic architecture still remains. The 16th century ruins of the Viljandi Order Castle, for example, are a major attraction. The biggest reason to visit Viljandi, however, is the annual folk music festival. Every July, the city attracts as many as 20,000 visitors who come specifically for the folk music. Dozens of concerts are held in every venue imaginable, and the event is the largest music festival in the entire country.
