To inspire members of the media and influencers and to introduce the best of Estonia, we organise individual and group press trips.

Dear journalist / content creator!

COVID-19 continues to affect our health and functioning of life.

To be able to offer you the most meaningful program and experience in Estonia, we are currently arranging FAM- and presstrips only to Covid-19 vaccinated/recovered people who are not subject to possible restrictions.

We assume that you have the internationally recognized official certificate, which proves that you have either:

  • been vaccinated (not more than 12 months ago)
  • recovered from COVID-19 (not more than 180 days have passed from the diagnosis) - applies to people coming from European Union, the Schengen area, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland or from the countries outside Europe included in Annex 1 to the recommendation of the council of the European Union.

Please also keep in mind that the entry to Estonia cannot be earlier than obtaining maximum protection depending on your vaccine type.

Further information and list of Annex 1 countries:

We sincerely hope that soon we can host you all without any restrictions.
