Dec 01, 2016
According to the Aliens Act, the annual immigration quota is the quota for aliens immigrating to Estonia, which shall not exceed 0.1 per cent of the permanent population of Estonia annually. For 2016, Government of the Republic established the quota of 1317, which was 0.1 per cent of the permanent population of Estonia and, therefore, the maximum that could be established. Immigration quota allocated for 2016 is becoming fulfilled before the end of the year. Since there is only a month left until the beginning of the next year and new immigration quota is in force from January 2017, the Police and Border Guard Board shall not refuse to give temporary residence permits due to the fulfillment of immigration quota but shall extend the term for proceeding applications until the beginning of the next year.
