All passengers who use international air transport are required to submit a valid identification document both when registering for a flight as well as when boarding the plane. Starting from 1 May 2006 the same rule applies also in case of domestic flights. When travelling to a destination not included in the Schengen judicial area the passenger is also required to pass through passport control.

On 19 July the Regulation No 610/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council from 26 June 2013, amending the Schengen Borders Code, entered into force. According to the amendment the entry conditions for third-country nationals shall be the following:
- They are in possession of a valid travel document entitling the holder to cross the border.
- The validity of the travel document shall extend at least three months after the intended date of departure from the territory of the Member States. In a justified case of emergency, this obligation may be waived.
- The travel document has been issued within the previous 10 years.
When booking a flight we recommend to make sure that your travel documents are in compliance with the requirements required for entering the country of destination. It is possible that you need to apply for a visa for entering your country of destination or also to a country, in which you need to change the plane for a connecting flight. More detailed information is available at the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (www.vm.ee).
