The first e-Residency center will open in South-Korea

1. E-Residency center in South Korea

Estonia is the first country to offer e-Residency, a government-issued digital ID available to anyone in the world. In December this year Estonia will start issuing digital identification to e-residents in South Korea.

The Estonian Interior Ministry, the Police and Border Guard, and the VFS South Korea Visa Application Center signed the agreement on October 20th that will permit the visa application center in Seoul to hand out e-resident’s digital ID cards.

E-residents in Asia will be able to receive their digital identification at a visa center located in the South Korean capital of Seoul. The aim of the pilot project is to make receiving the e-resident’s digital ID as comfortable as possible for people in Asia.
