Is double citizenship possible in Estonia?

Legally speaking the answer is NO but there are situations where a person can have Estonian citizenship and also citizenship to another country.

Our law states that a citizenship obtained by birth cannot be taken away.

This is usually done using also the data in the national archives and for example a person can order research to be done on their case using this website:
