Ordering documents

Official documents (eg. birth, marriage, death, divorce, name change certificates and other documents) issued in the Republic of Estonia can be ordered through the Embassy.

Please be advised that certificates and documents are issued only to the persons in whose name the document has been registered in the registry office, or to that person’s representative. A death certificate is issued only to the decedent’s widow/widower.

Ordering documents from Estonia requires the completion of a document order form and an application (according to the type of document ordered):

  • for ordering an archive document
  • for ordering a certificate from Estonian Police and Border Guard Board that the person has not applied for Estonian citizenship
  • for ordering an apostille

Please note that a state fee must be paid for the ordering service and, if necessary, a fee for issuing the document (the amount of the fee depends on the document).
