ID card. Applying, renewing and changing its PIN numbers

ID-cards do not contain fingerprint images and therefore can be renewed through the self-service portal (requires a valid ID-card and PIN-codes) or by post.

NB! If you have access to e-services (ID-card, Mobile-ID or Smart-ID), then the most low-cost and easiest way to renew your documents is through the self-service portal.

When applied by post, the application should be sent directly to the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board. Please prepare and complete the following:

  • A filled-out application form (in English, in Estonianin Russian). Instructions can be found here.
  • A DIGITAL photo (physical/printed photos are not accepted). Please e-mail the digital photo to ppa@politsei.ee, with the applicant’s name and the personal ID code/date of birth (photo requirements).
  • Pay the state fee to the Ministry of Finance (the state fees when applied by post can be found HERE).
  • Send the filled-out application form and the receipt of the state fee payment by post to the following address:

Police and Border Guard Board
Pärnu mnt 139
15060 Tallinn

If you are not able to renew the documents through the self-service portal or by post, please book an appointment here to submit your application at the embassy.

New PIN-codes for an ID-card with valid certificates can only be issued at the embassy during a booked appointment.

If you need new pin-codes for your currently valid ID-card, please first e-mail the embassy at Consul.London@mfa.ee. In the e-mail please confirm your full name, your personal ID code and the ID-card document number. Please note that there is a state fee to be paid for this service.

Should you have any questions, please call our consular phone line 020 7838 5388 (Mon – Fri 10am – 1pm) or send us an email at Consul.London@mfa.ee.
