Obviously, the coronavirus pandemic is still front of mind for all of us, and as of July 4, 2020, the current COVID-19 risk assessments mean that Estonia is no longer affected by the FCO’s advice against all non-essential international travel.
But while you can now freely travel between the UK and Estonia, you’ll have to self-isolate in both countries for 14 days upon your arrival into each.
Crime levels in Estonia are relatively low, but you will have to be vigilant in bars, night clubs, hotels and in Tallinn’s Old Town where pick pocketing can be an issue.
If you’re planning on driving in Estonia, be aware that the the law stipulates that headlights of vehicles must be on at all times, including during daylight hours and winter tyres must be fitted from December 1 to March 1. And if you have an alcoholic drink in Estonia, you’ll not be able drive as the legal limit is zero. If you’re found guilty of drink driving, you will be fined and could be imprisoned.
If you have a UK passport, this means you won’t need a visa to enter Estonia, and your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay. But be aware that the rules on travel will change on December 31, 2020.
