Working in Estonia as an EU citizen

As a citizen of a member state of the EU, EEA or Swiss Confederation, you may reside and work in Estonia without applying for temporary residence for up to three months. If you plan to stay longer, Work in Estonia provides a helpful tool to guide you through the process.

Working in Estonia as a Non-EU citizen

Your e-Residency status does not provide you with the right to visit, work or live in Estonia.

As an e-resident with a registered company in Estonia, you can work in Estonia for your company physically, without registering for short-term employment, only if both of the below apply:

  • You have a legal basis to stay in Estonia for the period you plan to stay
  • You are performing director or supervisory functions for your company

If your case does not meet these requirements, Work in Estonia is the best resource for you as it provides information about work permits.
