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.

Justice & public safety

Justice procedures are the cornerstones of any economy. Estonia has helped numerous countries build their digital justice systems based on three main components: the e-File central information system, the court information system, and a public portal for citizens and other parties.

The e-File is the heart of the Estonian judicial system. It provides data to our court information system as well as to the information systems of the police, jails, prosecutors and criminal case management. Since data is digitally entered only once, the e-File saves time and money. All communication between parties is electronic — including workflow, creating and sending summons, minutes of hearings, and decisions — and all parties can electronically follow proceedings. Signing the decisions is possible both electronically and physically.
