An Estonian Alien's Passport (Estonian: välismaalase pass) is an identity document, as well as a travel document of a stateless person of undefined citizenship residing in Estonia, issued by the Citizenship and Migration Board of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

Identity information page[edit]

The Estonia Passport includes the following data:

  • Photo of passport holder
  • Type (P for ordinary passports)
  • Code of Issuing State (EST)
  • Passport No.
  • Surname
  • Given Names
  • Date of Birth
  • Personal No.
  • Sex

The information page ends with the Machine Readable Zone.

Visa-free travel[edit]

The vast majority of nations which provide visa-free entry to holders of a full Estonian passport do not give visa-free entry to holders of the Estonian alien's passport, since they are not Estonian citizens.

Within the Schengen Area, whilst Estonian citizens are able to live and move freely with few restrictions and time limits, those with undefined citizenship possessing an Estonian alien's passport and a long term residence permit may only visit other Schengen states outside Estonia visa-free for trips less than 90 days in a 6-month period.
