Changes to EU Blue Card regulation and why is the card beneficial?

Recent changes to the Aliens Act of Estonia mended the EU Blue card regulation slightly. For example:


  • The length of the employment agreement needed to apply for the EU Blue card is shortened from 1 year to 6 months;

  • The holder of the EU Blue card can be unemployed for up to 3 months if they have held the card for up to 2 years or unemployed for up to 6 months if they have held the card at least for 2 years;

  • The people who have held long term residence permits to another EU country based on the EU Blue card do not go under the Estonian immigration quota.


But what is the EU Blue card?


An EU Blue Card gives highly-qualified workers from outside the EU the right to live and work in an EU country, provided they have higher professional qualifications, such as a university degree, and an employment contract with a high salary compared to the average in the EU - 1,5 times the Estonian average salary.


In some countries the period of working with the EU Blue Card in another EU country can count towards the right to get permanent residency. So maybe you can apply for the EU Blue Card (which is a type of residence permit in Estonia)?
