Countries with Estonian diplomatic missions

This is a list of diplomatic missions of Estonia. Estonia reestablished a foreign ministry on 12 April 1990, while the country was slowly restoring independence from the Soviet Union, with the symbols and instruments of sovereignty progressively being reintroduced. The events in August the following year when a coup attempt failed in Moscow accelerated the progress towards independence. The staff of the ministry worked a seven-day work week with threadbare facilities and supplies until January 1992, after they had secured Estonia's international recognition, and opened missions in New York City, Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Bonn, Paris, and Moscow.[1]

The Estonian government considers Estonia's incorporation into the Soviet Union illegal, and the foreign ministry to have been in continual operation since 1918.

Estonia and the other Baltic states, together with the Nordic countries have signed a memorandum of understanding[2] on the posting of diplomats at each other's missions abroad,[3][4][5] under the auspices of Nordic-Baltic Eight.[6]
