The basis of compiling a death entry in the population register is an application previously filled in by an official.
In order to register a death, you need to submit:
- identity documents evidencing the applicant’s person;
- medical death notice;
- in case of a spouse’s death, the marriage certificate if the marriage details have not been entered into the population register of Estonia.
A foreign document (marriage document issued in a foreign country) must be legalised or with a confirmed apostille, unless the international agreement states otherwise.
Document in a foreign language must be translated into Estonian, Russian or English and the translation must be confirmed by a notary, consular officer or sworn translator.
