An Estonian Alien's Passport (Estonian: välismaalase pass) is a travel document that may be issued to a person who is stateless or of undefined citizenship residing in Estonia by the Police and Border Guard Board of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. It can also be used as an identity document.

Visa requirements[edit]

The vast majority of nations which provide visa-free entry to Estonian citizens with an Estonian passport do not allow visa-free entry to holders of the Estonian alien's passport, who are not Estonian citizens.

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