Estonia offers ‘e-citizenships’

Estonia wants to attract millions of e-citizens, people from all over the world who could become part of the country without even setting foot there. Estonia is one of the most digitalised societies anywhere: people there can vote from home, fill in their income tax returns in five minutes and set up a business in less than 20 minutes. Taavi Kotka is the chief information officer for the Estonian government.
