In 2017, an Estonian government launched a startup visa programme for non-residents.

Business benefits of Estonia are the following:

  • Good reputation within the EU;
  • Lack of currency control;
  • Reliable and affordable banking services;
  • Transparent and clear tax system;
  • Minimum annual cash costs for the maintenance of the firm;
  • Due to the high image of the Estonian jurisdiction, opening an account with any European bank is virtually trouble-free.

To get a startup visa in Estonia, the applicant must meet certain conditions:

  • The age of at least 18 years;
  • The monthly income of at least 130 euros;
  • The new company should be registered in Estonia;
  • Availability of a worthy product, idea or service that has high development potential.

Obtaining a residence permit under the startup program is possible for the project founder and family members for a year, given that this period can be extended later.

Employees of the company may apply for a startup visa in Estonia under the worker’s status. Its term of validity is from three months to one year with the possibility of further extension.
