Estonia Immigration Services

​• ​​​Estonian law provides several options for employers of foreign nationals. Estonia is a member of the European Union (EU) and the Schengen Area. Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility and benefits for accompanying family members vary by visa classification.
 
• Business visitors to Estonia typically use a Schengen C Visa, unless they are visa exempt based on their nationality or a treaty. The Schengen Area limits stays to 90 days in a 180-day period. The visa can be obtained at their nearest Estonian consular post, or a Schengen member state consular post representing Estonia.
 
• The main work authorization category is the Residence Permit for Employment, suitable for foreign workers with skills not locally available.​​​ Estonia also offers a Short-Term Employment Program for work activities for up to 12 months, and a Digital Nomad Visa for remote work​, also for up to 12 months.​
