The maximum permitted short-term working time is 365 days for 455 consecutive days and for seasonal work 270 days for 365 consecutive days. These periods cannot be extended. Therefore, the employer must be careful to ensure that all employees are registered and that deadlines are not exceeded. On March 19, 2020, the Police and Border Guard Board continued to receive and process applications for the registration of short-term employment.
The Police and Border Guard advises foreigners who have a legal basis for a temporary stay in Estonia, but who no longer have a job in Estonia, to return to their country of residence as soon as possible if border crossings and transport allow.
Information on foreigners staying and working in Estonia can also be found on the website of the PBGB:
