Safety and emergencies

If you ever get into serious trouble, inform the Emergency Centre:

Emergency number -112

Here are a few safety concerns that international students should always bear in mind:

  • Wearing a pedestrian reflector during the darker months is compulsory!
  • Public drinking in Estonia is illegal.
  • If you are older than 16, you may buy defence devices for civilian use (alarm signals and tear or pepper-gas). These do not need to be registered. However, nerve gases and electric shock devices are prohibited in Estonia.
  • Apart from these, apply common sense to all situations: get a U-lock for your bike, choose more crowded and well-lit routes when walking at night...
