Thinking about moving in Estonia? Learn about the 'Welcoming Programme'

Starting a new life in a new country is exciting but can also be daunting. To help make your transition run smoothly, the Estonian government has put together a comprehensive free-of-charge welcoming programme to assist new arrivals.

The programme consists of an adaptation course and basic Estonian language tuition (A1 level). The course comprises different modules – a basic module about Estonian society, culture, the state, rights and obligations etc. and complementary modules on work and entrepreneurship, research, studying and family. There is also one aimed at children and young adults.

The modules last for 5-8 hours each and you can choose which ones to attend. Language tuition is a core part of the programme consisting of approximately 80 academic hours of study.

The Welcoming Programme - Your Guide to Settling in Estonia is open to all foreign nationals who have legally resided in Estonia for less than 5 years. The programme contains a wealth of information and aims to answer all your questions. For more information, please click here: Welcoming programme Your guide to settling in Estonia
