Invitation to Welcoming Programme

In 2018, the Ministry of the Interior will continue providing training courses in cooperation with Expat Relocation Estonia OÜ within the framework of the Welcoming Programme intended for all newly arrived foreigners.

One-day Welcoming Programme training sessions will provide you with primary knowledge and skills for everyday life and work in Estonia. You also have the opportunity to take part in Estonian language trainings for beginners.

All newly arrived foreigners with a valid temporary residence permit or temporary right of residence who have lived in Estonia for less than five years can participate in the training courses. Participating in the Welcoming Programme is free of charge.

Training sessions during the first quarter of 2018 will take place from January to March and continue throughout the year. Register for trainings at www.settleinestonia.ee.
