Aliens of Latvia and Estonia is another category of persons without citizenship. Stateless persons of Latvia and Estonia appeared due to the national policy pursued in these republics. This category of people who came to Estonia and Latvia after 1940, as well as their descendants already born in LSSR and in independent Latvia. They did not become citizens of these countries, even being born in Latvia and Estonia, only because their ancestors did not live there until 1940. The Latvian non-citizen's passport itself is also very interesting thing. Instead of word citizen, there is an inscription in English called ALIAN PASSPORT.
