Applying for A1 (E101) certificate for employee of enterprise or of sole proprietor
An employer (or sole proprietor) must apply for an A1 certificate for an employee if:
- you assign your employee to temporarily work in another EU Member State (for a maximum of 24 months)
- the employee lives in Estonia and works for you alone in several EU Member States (including Estonia).
NB! An employee who does not live in Estonia but works in several Member States (including Estonia) must apply for an A1 certificate from the social insurance institution in their state of residence.
As of 18 March 2019 certificates A1 issued in Estonia will be effective without being signed or sealed and the Estonian Social Insurance Board will no longer issue paper forms by mail. You can view and print certificate A1 issued to you through the service Applications for A1 (E101) certificate filed by me and my certificates.
NB! All official forms are in Estonian.
firstname.lastname@example.org or call Social Insurance Board helpline 612 1360, on weekdays 9:00–17:00. On the last Friday of every month 9:00–13:00.
