Frequently Asked Questions

Smart-ID is currently being used in three countries: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. If you live here or have business here and would like to register a Smart-ID account to get easy access to e-services, here are your options.

If you are not a resident of Baltic countries and do not have a local national ID-number, then:

  • In Lithuania, non-residents (people without a Lithuanian national ID-number) can apply for Smart-ID Basic. They should visit a Medicinos Bankas bank office with their passport or ID-card.
  • In Estonia and Latvia, currently Smart-ID is currently limited to people with Estonian or Latvian national ID-number.

If you are a resident, you’ll have your residence permit card which enables you to register your Smart-ID account just as you would if you were a citizen. Just follow the instructions meant for ID-card use! This also applies to Estonian e-residents.
