Imagine two scenarios: 🌍

Martin does not have an e-Residency card. He needs to travel to a notary public in Tallinn in order to incorporate an Estonian company as a holding company. He needs to visit the SWEDBANK branch and spend a lot of money on flights and accommodation. Robert is an e-Resident card holder. He can incorporate the company wholly online, remotely from home, and file statutory documents such as accounts, VAT returns, and others. It is essential to apply for an e-Residency card earlier due to waiting for approval by Police Border Guard. The statutory period for accepting your application is approximately 30 business days. ⏳ Martin will apply for a Trademark Registration soon.
