This month’s topic presents the information on various possibilites of acquiring the citizenship of Republic of Slovenia, gives a description of the procedures, the required documents and forms. Detailed questions concerning the discussed topic can be asked at: email@example.com.
In the article you can also search for information on the governing of registry facts and on the changes of the citizens’ personal status in the registry, which is, among other, connected to the electoral record. Ministry of the Interior strives to establish an updated electoral register, for which it requires a complete permanent address, postal code and the address for realization of the right to vote, which is a citizen’s last permanent address. If a citizen of the Republic of Slovenia did not have it, the last permanent address of one of the parents is used instead. If this address can not be established either, the citizen himself/herself states in which electoral district he/she would like to vote.
