Estonia and Finland connect their data exchange layers for seamless cross-border data transfer

Estonia and Finland connect their data exchange layers for seamless cross-border data transfer

This was done because of increasing
migration and commuting between the two countries. The connection will make it
technologically possible to transfer data electronically through a uniform
transfer method over the Gulf of Finland between organisations that have joined
the countries’ data exchange layers. For instance, register data can be exchanged automatically so
that the home municipality of Estonians living in Finland is marked correctly
in Estonian registries.
