Please keep your residence data up to date in the population register, otherwise you may lose local services linked to your place of residence (such as free public transport and kindergarten places) or state services (such as the extension of their driver’s license).

Updating your residence data is easy. It can be done in the self service portal rahvastikuregister.ee, or by sending a notice of residence to the city district government by regular mail or by e-mail with a digital signature.

Residence data can also be updated at the city district government of your residence, at the Tallinn City Office Service Bureau, or at the Tallinn Vital Statistics Department.

The current Population Register Act also states that each person shall ensure their own and their children’s correct residence data in the population register.

If a person cannot submit their residence data with the notice of residence on their own (e.g. there is no lease agreement, or the dwelling owner does not agree to it), then the person can turn to the district administration for assistance.
