Applying for A1 (E101) certificate as entrepreneur

An employer (entrepreneur/sole proprietor) who wishes to assign its employee (or the sole proprietor him/herself) from Estonia to temporarily work in another Member State of the European Union (for up to 24 months) must apply for an A1 certificate from the Social Insurance Board.

A person is only entitled to social insurance in one country at a time. This means that the social insurance contribution is only paid for an employee in the country that issues the A1 certificate; in other countries of work there is no obligation to pay social insurance contributions.

NB! An employer applies for a certificate for an employee, but the certificate is always personal and is issued in the name of the employee.

Further information about social insurance rules and rights in the European Union can be found on the website of the European Commission.

info@sotsiaalkindlustusamet.ee  or call Social Insurance Board 16106 (from abroad +372 612 1360), on weekdays from 9:00 till 17:00. 9:00-13:00 on the last Friday of every month.

NB! All official forms are in Estonian.
