Estonia’s Police and Border Guard Board Agency says the country will continue to issue passports to its citizens stranded abroad despite the coronavirus crisis.

Schengen Visa Info reports the country will continue to issue these passports through a secure postal service.

The new way of delivering new document applications has been established in a bid to enable applicants to get their identity documents without the need to come into direct contact with other people.

Estonia’s government has previously announced that the internal border check has been reintroduced and will be in place until 15 April.

Schengen Visa Info reports Estonia also has reintroduced land borders with Latvia, as well as air borders and sea borders.

Mart Helme, Estonia’s Minister of the Interior, announced that those travelling, under these extreme circumstances, besides the passport checks, will need to submit a health certificate to competent authorities.
