Estonian Immigration Law

As a member state of the European Union, Estonia shares European values, respect for human rights, and applies a common European Union immigration policy. Estonian immigration policy has historically aimed at facilitating the settlement of those aliens in Estonia, whose residence here is consistent with the public interest. The rights of European Union citizens and their family members concerning residence and employment in Estonia are set out in the Citizen of the European Union Act.

A foreigner (a third-country national) must obtain a residence permit for employment or his/her short-term employment must be registered to work in Estonia. Short-term employment in Estonia (up to 365 within 455 days or, in the case of seasonal work, 270 days within 365 days) does not require a residence permit.

To engage in short-term employment, a foreigner must have a legal basis (a visa or other such) for staying in Estonia. For long-term employment in Estonia (more than 12 months), a foreigner must apply for a residence permit for employment. The number of foreigners who can come to work in Estonia based on a residence permit is limited – their number must not exceed 0.1 percent of Estonia’s permanent population a year.

The quota does not include people in the exempt category, such as top specialists, the employees of start-ups and ICT areas, etc.

Many of our clients are foreign nationals who need to apply for a non-immigrant and immigrant visa at the Estonian Embassies. Our team provides one-stop services from preparing visa application documents and exhibits to organizing visa interviews and deliveries for our valuable clients.
