e-Governance

In Estonia, 99 percent of public services are available online 24 hours a day. E-services are only impossible for marriages and divorces  – you still have to get out of the house for those.

Thanks to a safe, convenient, and flexible digital ecosystem, Estonia has reached an unprecedented level of transparency in governance and built broad trust in its digital society. As a result, Estonia saves over 1400 years of working time annually and has become a hassle-free environment for business and entrepreneurship.

e-Services & registries

In Estonia, all databases are responsible for describing their kept information in the catalogue of interoperability resources (RIHA). Following the once-only principle, collecting the same data in separate databases is not allowed. RIHA serves as the national registry of systems, components, services, data models, semantic assets, and more. The purpose of RIHA is to guarantee the transparent, balanced, and efficient management of public sector information systems. Registration with RIHA for public databases and information systems is mandatory and enforced by law.

Among some of the most popular digital services in Estonia are: the Tax and Customs Board, the Patient Portal, e-File, and the e-Business Register.
