If you are travelling to Estonia for a short trip of up to 90 days, you will need an Estonian Schengen Visa. European countries that have abolished border controls between each other are known as Schengen Member States.

A Schengen Visa is an official travel document. It allows a person to travel to any country in the Schengen Area. For stays of up to 90 days for tourism or business purposes.
The Schengen area consists of 26 European countries which includes Estonia. The area mostly acts as a single jurisdiction for international travel with a common visa policy.
Nationals of some countries, which have not yet reached a liberalization agreement will need to obtain this travel authorization before arrival in Estonia or any other part of Europe.
Please select one of the following options when applying for your Visa To Estonia:
You must apply for a residency permit or national D-Visa, rather than a Estonia Schengen Visa if you plan to stay in Estonia for more than 90 days.
Your long-stay visa must be for a period of three months to one year, regardless of the length of your anticipated stay. You must apply for a residence permit at a prefecture in order to prolong your stay beyond the duration of your visa.
The long-stay visa is comparable to a Schengen visa throughout its validity term, allowing you to travel and remain in the Schengen area outside of Estonia for up to 90 days in any 180-day period, under the same circumstances as if you had a Schengen visa.
If you are a citizen of a country that can visit the Schengen zone without a visa, then you may travel visa-free and apply for your national visa / residence permit from within the country you wish to stay in long-term.

A Estonia Schengen visa enables a foreign person to go to a Schengen port-of-entry (usually an airport) and request to be granted permission to enter the country. We can ensure that Visa Applications go smoothly, however, entrance to the Schengen zone is not guaranteed by an approved visa.
A Visa is required for any third national wishing to enter Estonia or any other Schengen country. It could be a short-stay Schengen C-visa for stays of up to 90 days or a national D-visa / residence permit for longer stays in the country.
Schengen visas are utilised by business persons, tourists, speciality workers, and students who want to stay in Estonia for a limited time for specific travel purposes. Those who apply for a Schengen visa must show the visa Applications Centre that they intend to leave the Schengen Zone at the end of their temporary stay.
