Opening a bank account

Opening a bank account is very simple in Estonia. You can do so at the nearest bank office; all you need is a personal identification document.

In addition to cash, debit and credit cards are accepted in most shops, restaurants and companies. Salary payments are usually made to a person’s bank account. The ATMs of the larger banks can be found in branch offices, petrol stations, larger supermarkets and other frequently visited places. Internet banking is also very common. Cheques are seldom used in Estonia.
