  • are registered as unemployed; and
  • obtained an Estonian residence permit on the basis of their status as a recipient of international protection or a certificate of an applicant for international protection allowing them to work in Estonia for the first time in the 12 months preceding their registering as unemployed.

Wage subsidies can be requested for both fixed-term employment contracts and employment contracts entered into for an unspecified term. A fixed-term employment contract must be entered into for at least six months. Wage subsidy is paid for 12 months from the commencement of work. In the case of fixed-term employment contract, the wage subsidy is paid for half of the period of employment contract but for no longer than 12 months.Wage subsidies can be requested for both fixed-term employment contracts and employment contracts entered into for an unspecified term.
