From 15 January, those arriving in Estonia from European countries with a cumulative number of positive virus tests of more than 150 per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days have to stay in isolation. The obligation of self-isolation does not extend to cases where the relevant figure is less than 150.
From January 15, people who do not want to stay in self-imposed isolation for ten days after arriving in Estonia must take the coronavirus PCR test up to 72 hours before arrival in the country. While staying in Estonia, it is then possible to take the second test not earlier than on the sixth day after the first test taken abroad. A person is released from the ten-day isolation obligation prematurely if the results of both tests are negative.
Those who have not taken the test up to 72 hours before arriving in Estonia have the option to take the first test in Estonia immediately after arriving in the country and the second test not earlier than six days after taking the first test. The ten-day isolation obligation can be ended prematurely if the results of both tests are negative.

- have suffered from COVID-19 and no more than six months have passed since they have been declared cured;
