A current account can be opened for minors by their legal representatives or guardians. Children aged seven and older can get a bank card and the right to use the current account independently.

To open a current account on behalf of a minor, you will need the following documents:

You can bring over your current account and all the standing orders and e-invoice standing payment arrangements related to your current account.

Switching from another bank means closing your current account in your previous bank and opening a new one in Luminor if you haven’t yet done so. We can bring over your current account if you don’t have any of the following agreements with your other bank:

  • a credit agreement like a housing loan or credit card;
  • an agreement for managing a securities account;
  • an agreement on a savings or investment product like a term deposit or investment deposit;
  • an agreement to use your current account for depositing foreign currencies or as a multi-account or multi-currency

Switching e-invoice standing payment arrangements and standing orders from another bank means that you end your agreements in your previous bank and sign new ones in Luminor.
 
You cannot switch from another bank if:

  • the current account has been frozen in the other bank;
  • you owe money to the other bank, such as debts for unpaid service fees.

An IBAN (International Bank Account Number) is an internationally agreed means of identification for bank accounts. The IBAN is needed for making foreign transactions, receiving payments from foreign countries and making transfers outside Estonia.

The Estonian IBAN has 20 digits. A six-digit combination of letters and numbers has been added in front of the old domestic account number:
  • a two-letter country code (EE for Estonia);
  • a two-digit control number;
  • a two-digit bank code (17 for our bank);
  • three zeros (000);
  • the old domestic account number (17000123456).


From 1 February 2014 the IBAN is used in Estonia and the old domestic account number is no longer valid.
