To receive an extract from the Criminal Records Database, you need to make an inquiry to the Criminal Records Database, based on which a notice from the database is issued.
It is possible to make the inquiry of the Criminal Records Database electronically via email, in the e-File environment or by regular mail on paper.
There are two options to view the data entered in the Criminal Records Database:
To view data in the information system of the e-File:
Everyone can make inquiries of the Criminal Records Database about themselves or other persons in the public e-File. To this end, it is necessary to enter the e-File by means of ID-card or Mobile ID. An extract from the e-File is intended solely for access to criminal records, and it is not possible to obtain an official document from there.
To apply the issue of a digitally signed or paper notice from the database:
To submit an official document to a third person about your punishment data, it is possible to apply for a signed notice from the database from the Criminal Records Database. To receive a signed notice from the database, it is necessary to send a previously completed application to the Criminal Records Database either by email to email@example.com or on paper to the following address: Lubja 4, 19081 Tallinn. In case of a paid inquiry, we kindly ask you to add a copy of the document certifying the payment of state fee to the application.
The application to be submitted should be signed on paper or digitally (the requirement arises from clause 15 (2) 6) of the Criminal Records Database Act), otherwise it cannot be processed.
There is no reception at the Centre of Registers and Information Systems, and the applications are not accepted there.
