Residence cards issued after May 20th 2012 (according to regulation (EC) No. 380/2008 of 18 April 2008) shall contain an electronic chip with photo, fingerprints and signature recorded digitally. In this way the security against forgery and misuse of residence cards is strengthened considerably.
The decision to introduce fingerprints in residence cards, has been made at a central level in the EU as part of the combat against terrorism, human trade, human trafficking, illegal immigration and other transnational crime.

The Danish Embassy in Tallinn will from May 20th 2012 no longer receive applications for residence permits except applications for Greenland, the Faroe Islands and family members of EU/EEA citizens and Swiss citizens.

The nearest mission where the biometric residence card can be applied is in Riga, Latvia.
