Health Board conditions for the submission of traveller declarations

Üllar Lanno, director-general of the Health Board, has signed an order which specifies the conditions under which traveller declarations can be submitted by anyone who is travelling to Estonia. The declaration has two purposes: preventing the spread of COVID-19 and notifying people of their rights and obligations. Analysis of journeys by individuals who are entering Estonia - along with details from their tests - is necessary in order to be able to identify potential new, mutated strains of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and to be able to determine the origins of any such new strains. More specific declarations will help to improve the reliability and quality of the collected information.

When crossing the state border, travellers are required to submit to the Health Board their personal details and contact information, the details of any minors who are travelling with them, and details regarding their journeys. Among other things, they are required to specify the country from which they have travelled to reach Estonia, details regarding their arrival, and a list of countries which they have visited during the course of their trip, including any layover countries.

The declaration can be submitted either on paper or electronically. The Health Board’s self-service environment is available at: iseteenindus.terviseamet.ee. Printable declaration forms can be found at: www.kriis.ee. Those individuals who have already had COVID-19 or who have been vaccinated, or any other individuals who are not subject to restrictions on their freedom of movement pursuant to the respective order by the government of the republic of Estonia are not required to submit the declaration if they are able to provide proof of the grounds for their exemption.

If an individual who is required to submit a declaration refuses to do so, a penalty payment may be levied. The Health Board hopes that all travellers who are required to submit the declaration will observe this obligation. Otherwise the Health Board will not be able to do its best to ensure the safety and security of all.

The order will enter into force on 5 April 2021 and will remain valid until the end of the current state of emergency.
