Last Friday, after the referendum results were announced, I registered as an e-resident of Estonia. It’s not what I planned to do that day, that’s for sure.
My main motivation for becoming an e-resident was to give me an option to keep part of my company in the EU. This could offer some benefits, like having an EU address, a euro bank account, and an ability to sign contracts under EU law (since we have no idea what UK law is going to look like).
E-residency doesn’t offer EU citizenship or Schengen travel, unfortunately.
I’ve written a guide to Estonian e-residency on the Red Robot Media website.
