Business, bank accounts, legal residence, and e-residence in Estonia

When opening a bank account in Estonia, you obtain an opportunity to enjoy banking services of the quality found in Switzerland but at lower costs and with lower required security balance. The banks in Estonia that we recommend to you are as good as Latvian banks but much fewer people know about the Estonian banking opportunities.

The Estonian taxation system is one of the most valuable assets that the country offers but everything is perfectly neat from the legal point of view. Thus, Estonia is not an offshore jurisdiction.

Just like in Latvia, you can acquire legal residence in Estonia by investment but only by investment into business. Just like in Lithuania, there is a business immigration opportunity in Estonia but you cannot acquire legal residency in the country by simply purchasing real estate there or depositing money in a local bank. It is possible to acquire legal residency in Estonia but there are yearly quotas and you have to follow all the rules precisely if you want to retain the residence permit. Losing it is rather easy as the control over foreign residents is automatized in Estonia.

By the way, Estonians are multilingual: apart from Estonian, they speak English, Russian, and many of them learn Scandinavian languages too.
