Estonia simplifies EU Blue Card requirements

Effective 15 April 2024, Estonia amended its laws governing EU Blue Cards, including simplifying educational and professional requirements for applicants. The changes that went into effect on 15 April 2024, in line with the revised EU Blue Card Directive, are expected to benefit employers by simplifying Blue Card application requirements and providing enhanced benefits to Blue Card holders. In general, the changes aim to harmonize the conditions of entry and residence of highly qualified workers from third countries and increase the attractiveness of EU Blue Cards.
