Note that e-Residency provides the right to perform electronic documents such as forming a company or signing documents digitally, managing bank accounts. But, at the moment, you cannot open a bank account with e-Residency, but development is ongoing to apply for a bank account through a video call with a banker.

The card is not a valid ID card or approved travel document and has no photo. E-Residency does not give the holder citizenship, or residence permit, nor does it give a general right to entry in either Estonia or the EU. Citizenship, residence permit and entry permit are assessed on a completely different basis.
