From December 2023 it is possible to order the Estonian passport by DHL courier as a paid service to the requested address. Attention! ID cards are not sent by courier. The Estonian passport can therefore be received in Spain via a DHL courier, so you no longer have to come to the embassy or honorary consulate to pick up passport. You can choose the courier option when applying for a passport, and if a positive decision is made on the issue of your passport, you will be emailed detailed instructions on how to proceed with the courier service. The passport is issued only to the applicant who, upon receiving the passport, has to present his or her valid identity document to the courier, which may also be a valid identity document from a foreign country. An additional service fee applies when receiving the document by courier. To display the approximate price, you need to enter your address to the Estonian Police and Border Guard self-service portal. NB! The cost of the courier service does not include the state fee! More detailed information can be found on the website of the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board.

As of 1.01.2021 Estonian passports and ID-cards will not be issued by the Estonian Embassy or Honorary Consulates, if the owner of the passport or ID-card is owing alimony (child support) or is declared as a wanted person by Estonian authorities. The documents for such persons can be collected only at the Police and Border Guard Board service centres in Estonia, i.e the person needs to come to pick them up in Estonia.
