As of 1 December, all cross-border travellers are required to complete the cross-border traveller’s declaration

Due to the risk of importing the new Omicron variant of coronavirus, anyone who wishes to enter Estonia must complete the cross-border traveller’s declaration as of 1 December. This order will remain in force until 16 December. The declaration can be completed via the Health Board’s self-service environment at: iseteenindus.terviseamet.ee.

The cross-border traveller’s declaration must be completed within three days prior to your arrival in Estonia. Travellers must specify in the declaration all of those countries to which they have been during their trip (including transit countries), and the destination from which they are arriving. The declaration sheet which is being used in Estonia is quick and convenient to complete, as no detailed information is required. The sheet must be filled in electronically, but may be presented in paper format if there is no other option.

The order will remain in force until 16 December 2021. It has been issued for a specified period only, as the characteristics of the Omicron variant of coronavirus and its potential impact within the borders of Estonia for now remain unclear. More detailed information about the new variant of the virus should be received within the next two weeks. If necessary the Health Board will amend the order’s expiry date. Based on the previous order which had remained effective until now, the cross-border traveller’s declaration only had to be completed in the case of arrivals from third countries or red-listed Schengen countries. Those arrivals were also subject to the requirement to self-isolate.

Any information which is collected from the declarations will be retained for a period of ten days for monitoring and supervision requirements. During this period, the information will remain accessible for supervisory purposes. This information allows the Health Board to determine those countries from which coronavirus or a specific variant of the virus was brought into Estonia and how the virus may subsequently be spreading across Estonia. After this period, the information will be archived, remaining accessible to the Health Board’s epidemiologists and employees for a further twenty-day period.
