Welcome to the InterNations Community of Expats in Estonia!

Tere tulemast and welcome to our expat community in Estonia! InterNations is a platform created to serve expatriates around the globe, helping you to navigate the process of moving to a new country or city. We have many members in Estonia who have made use of the expat resources available on our platform while relocating and to make settling in a little easier on arrival. We value contributions from all of our members, so please feel free to share your own experiences of life in Estonia. When you join InterNations, you'll be able to find the answers to a range of common questions, such as driving regulations in Estonia, renters’ rights in Tallinn and acquiring a work visa if you're not from an EU/EEA member state. Our community includes recent arrivals to Estonia and longtime residents, so you're bound to find the advice you need from one of our members. Our goal is to be the door to Estonia's international community, helping you to reach out to fellow expats and fully immerse yourself in the Estonian way of life. A fascinating culture with a distinct personality all of its own, this Baltic state offers much to enjoy — from the taste of traditional Estonian verivorst to celebrations for iseseisvuspäev — Estonia's independence day.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are.

Learn More about Being an Expat in Estonia

A small but ambitious Baltic nation bordering Latvia to the south, Russia to the east, and the Gulf of Finland to the north, Estonia is one of Europe's true hidden gems. From its many miles of unspoiled forests, lakes, and wetlands to the thriving modern capital of Tallinn, there's plenty to do and see. After securing independence from the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, Estonia has enjoyed impressive economic growth, with a standard of living among the highest in the region. Many expats are drawn to Estonia due to their world-class IT and communications industries, with other key business opportunities including property investment and engineering. The overall feel of this country is one that combines the rich history of the east with the modern outlook and high living standard of their Nordic neighbors in Finland, Sweden, and Norway — a truly unique combination that makes Estonia an appealing and rewarding destination for expats.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Thailand or Belgium, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
