Estonian e-Resident In Japan

“I was looking for European business expansion through the Estonian e-Residency program. Namely, I founded my company online, bypassing the need to be physically in Estonia (living in Tokyo), which was especially useful during the pandemic-related travel disruptions. In my experience, Estonia stands out precisely because of its efficiency, cost-effectiveness and user-friendly digital approach, eliminating paperwork and language barriers to make the experience smooth, unlike possible challenges in other regions.”

e-resident of Estonia
