Currently only available in the country of Estonia, E-residency simplifies online access to numerous government services by providing business owners a digital identity that allows them to set up and manage an enterprise online from anywhere in the world there is an Internet connection.

An Estonian E-resident can access services relating to the country’s banking, taxation, business formation, official documentation, taxation, government reports, and other regulatory compliance needs.

The Global COVID-19 pandemic, and its influence in promoting remote work, will likely accelerate efforts by other countries to remotely offer such services.
