How to fill out an Estonian passport application form
It is passport renewal time for me once again yet it doesn't seem that long ago that I was in the Estonian Embassy in Berlin submitting my paperwork. Time certaintly flies by when you're busy! If you are a second or third generation Estonian like me who is not fluent in the Estonian language and sometimes needs assistance understanding certain words on forms, then this may help. Below I have provided a translation of everything you need to write on an Estonian passport renewal form. Use it as a guide to complete the form then attach a photo and sign within the signature box. For first time applicants, you will also need to provide additional information.
It is only possible to apply for a new passport via mail if less than 5 years have passed since applying for the previous passport and taking of fingerprints. It is always possible to apply for a new ID-card via mail.
The form must be written in Estonian using block letters and black ink.

Kõik taotlusesse esitatud andmed ja taotlusele lisatud dokumendid on õiged. Olen, teadlik, et valeandmete ja võltsitud dokumendite esitamine on karistatav (basically means that you state that all information in this form is correct). Päev/kuu/aasta (DD/MM/YYYY) taotleja või taotleja seadusjärgse esindaja allkiri (your signature)
