However, if you are entering the country from a non-EU country, you may be asked for a passport. Bulgarian citizens do not need a visa to travel to Estonia. Non-EU nationals with a permanent residence permit in Bulgaria (or any other Schengen country) do not need a visa to travel and stay in Estonia for up to 90 days (within a six-month period).

For stays longer than three months, it is compulsory to apply for a green card (ID-Kaarta), which is available at the offices of the Estonian Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration (website: www.mig.ee, telephone: +372 6126979).

Bulgarian citizens residing in the Republic of Estonia on a short-term or long-term basis may address consular questions to the Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in Finland.

Bulgarian identity documents:
The diplomatic mission of the Republic of Bulgaria in Finland has the technical capability to capture the applicant's signature, face and fingerprints with digital devices, therefore applications for passport, identity card and Emergency Travel Document are accepted.

European Emergency Travel Document:
In extreme situations — in case of damage, loss or theft of a passport, Bulgarian citizens can apply for an Emergency Travel Document at an Embassy of an EU Member State in the Republic of Estonia.

Certifications and legalizations:
The Republic of Estonia is a party to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents.
In order to be valid in the Republic of Bulgaria and to be able to serve before the Bulgarian institutions, all documents issued by the authorities in Estonia to Bulgarian citizens should be issued with an Apostille.
Once the documents have been prepared in this way, they must be translated into Bulgarian by an authorized company in Bulgaria and the translation must be certified by the Certifications and Legalizations Department with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Bulgaria.
