Registering EU family members in another EU country – Estonia
The documents required to show there is a family relationship are:
- Husband/wife: marriage certificate (with certified translation)
- child's birth certificate
- child's and parent's identity document
- if the parent's name has changed compared to what is indicated on the birth certificate: a document certifying the change of the parent's name, such as a marriage certificate
- (grand)parents: documents that prove dependency (due to health or financial reasons) on the EU citizen in the country of origin.
- Extended family members (uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, etc.) can be registered only if they are dependent on the EU citizen.
- Registered and non-registered partners can register either as separate individuals or as being dependent on the EU citizen.
In Estonia, a dependant is a person who resides together with a citizen of the European Union in a shared household and has no personal income. On the other hand, a member of the household is a person who resides together with a citizen of the European Union in a shared household and has a personal income.
