Document List

An ETIAS authorisation will be required for every Australian citizen for short-stay period in Estonia starting from 2021.


A valid passport is required to enter Estonia. All tourists entering Estonian territory from another (Schengen country) are exempted from presenting their passports to Estonian authorities. In this case, a national identity card is the only document needed.
The passport and other travel documents accepted for entry must be valid for a minimum of 3 months beyond the period of intended stay. All the Passports (or equivalent travel documents) issued more than ten years before the date of travel, may not be accepted.

A Schengen visa is mandatory for all nationals of Australia who stay in the country for a period greater than 90 days.
For short stay visits (less than 90 days within a period of 180 days), the visitors are exempted from obtaining a valid Schengen visa.
An ETIAS authorisation will become a mandatory requirement for every Australian citizen starting from 2021.
ETIAS will have a validity of five years, and it can be used for an unlimited number of entries.

Custom Regulations
Travelers, arriving into Estonia by road may bring at the first and second entry within a calendar month, the following quantities of products:

  • Tobacco: Cigarettes (40), cigarillos (100), cigars (20), smoking tobacco (50g).
  • Alcohol: Wine (4L) (except sparkling wine, liqueur wine), beer (16L), spirits with alcohol content up to 22% (2L), strong alcoholic beverages (1L)

Currency Restriction
Money Amounts of over €10,000 (or equivalent in foreign currencies) in cash or travelers' cheques must be declared at the point of entry or exit of the EU. Visitors entering Estonia with a one-way ticket and not having sufficient funds to purchase a return ticket might be refused to enter.

Children between seven and fifteen years must have their own passport (or a photo of the child must be included in the parent's passport).

Australia and Estonia
Of the more than 70,000 Estonians who fled to the West between 1940 and 1944, to escape Soviet and German occupations, many settled in Australia. Australia encouraged the withdrawal of Russian troops from Estonia after being among the first countries to recognise Estonia’s independence in 1991. The sixth-largest expatriate Estonian community calls Australia home, and over 9,500 Australians are identified as having Estonian ancestry.
Australia and Estonia have a Working Holiday Maker arrangement as well as a bilateral Social Security Agreement which provides improved social security protection to those who live or work in both Australia and Estonia. Merchandise trade between the countries is valued at $83.9 million. Australia’s exports to Estonia consist of gold coin and legal tender, and prepared additives for mineral oils.
Estonia’s exports to Australia include wood, telecom equipment and parts, computers, and measuring and analysing instruments.
Education links and student exchange arrangements between Australian and Estonian institutions are under development, with Melbourne’s Monash University already in an exchange agreement with the Estonian Business School in Tallinn.
