A photograph of a certain format, which is further attached to other official documents, can be obtained in the photobox. It is a special camera that works on the principle of self-service.

In all the photoboxes of the capital of Estonia - Tallinn (the only exceptions are two districts: Kolde and Keila) you can easily and quickly take pictures in the photobox. This is allowed even if you are not going to file a petition by contacting a service bureau. The self-service point also has the opportunity to leave a sample of its painting and fingerprints.

Photo taken in photoboxing has a digital format. This format is allowed to be submitted on documents by regular mail and e-mail for 60 days from the moment the picture was taken. The only exception is the execution of a permit for weapons.

When you send documents for application by regular mail or e-mail, attaching photos from the photo box to the documents, be sure to mention the fact that the picture was taken at a self-service point. If you wear optical glasses, you must take them off before photographing to avoid light flare and shadowing of your face.
