No halving of the immigration quota
It seems like the plans for halving the immigration quota for the year 2020 have been dropped and everything will pursue as per usual, almost. This means immigration to Estonia will remain difficult for many (we will dedicate one of the next articles on the policy and requirements regarding immigration outside of the quota). There is a new regulation though that influences the quota to a certain extent, namely certain professions will have their own sub-quotas or guaranteed quotas.
28 places will go to people working for artistic establishments as creative workers - theatres, operas for example.
18 places will go to working as a professional sportsman, coach or sports worker.
10 places are allocated to workers under foreign agreements.
The rest of the quota will be allocated on the first come first served principle.
