Hi International students, as you are preparing to come to Estonia please be aware of recent changes in legislation.

The two most prominent changes are: Students can only work 20 hours a week. Students can no longer bring their families to Estonia anymore. For those paying school fees, before you come, make sure that the return on investment is worth it.

Is it possible for a student to low key work more than 20hrs?

Nothing like low key. 20 hours per week is not bad. That means at least 60 hours per month.

Assuming you earn lets say the least €10 per hour. Do the maths, and it might be more or less pay anyway. Depends.

Like someone said earlier estonia is just a steeping stone to greater heights.

Even if it's 5 euros per hour... I will accept it as this is preamble to the greater future. Think about the contact you would make before and after graduation... Think about the knowledge. It's better than Nations where you can't work like Italy

I think the restrictions on bringing family did not apply to doctoral student. They can bring their family.

So I have finally landed in Estonia. Actually landed a week ago but couldn’t gather myself to write this message. I went through Turkey and it was quite smooth. Traveled with a child and we spent approx 1.2M for the entire process including flights and visa fees. I am certain it will be cheaper for most people because your flights can be cheaper. Our flight fees were most expensive cos I had to fly business class because of the comfort for the child. I’d itemize most of the fees I can remember.

Flight to Abuja, Uber to the visa center, $250 visa fees for 2 people and miscellaneous= 200k
Return Flight to turkey: 700k
9 nights at Hotel: 52k
Food and transport: 51k
Estonian Visa: 40k
Flight to Estonia: 212k
Total: 1,255,000

My Estonian visa was approved within 5 days. Submitted on a Monday and collected the passports on a Friday. No serious questions were asked. If you are interested in applying for turkey visa, you can reply my comment. I will write all what I went through there so that you don’t have to waste money like I did. Photocopying 1 page is 100naira there. Printing of 1 page is 1k. They just extort people a lot there.

Also, I got insurance for myself and child for 39k valid for a year.



What's the Turkish visa process, please share.

Please stop giving false information, the amendment has not been passed and there are lots of oppositions to the draft. It's currently just a draft by the ministry of Interior.

Not completely true, but if you say most Estonian companies pay between €4-€5 per hour, you are right. But many companies pays more than that.

This is exactly what #Crispviv said. No point criticizing it.
Re: Lets Talk About Estonia by hakeembee(m): 5:30pm On Aug 13
Ohhh OK, someone said exactly what I said before?, that was great. And I wasn't "criticizing". There are companies other than IT and Customer Care Agents ( or "professional jobs"wink that pays between €6-€8 per hour, that was my point.
