However, the repatriation (citizenship by descent) is the quickest method to gain Slovenian passport currently. This path is based on elements of the Slovenian citizenship laws, making the process quicker and more transparent for those eligible. The foreigner must provide evidence that either his direct relative (one of the parents, grandparents or great-grandparents) is (or was) of Slovenian nationality, or the applicant has been adopted by a Slovenian citizen under the conditions of full adoption. No language requirements, no obligation to relinquish one’s current nationality.
Article 12 of Slovenian Citizenship Act provides for the restoring of citizenship to persons born or living in the territory of Slovenia as well as to their descendants up to the 4th generation!:
„Pristojni organ lahko, če je to v skladu z nacionalnim interesom, po prostem preudarku sprejme v državljanstvo Republike Slovenije slovenskega izseljenca in njegovega potomca do četrtega kolena v ravni črti, če dejansko joživi v slošd letat Republik, prostem preudarku sprejme v državljanstvo Republike Slovenije če ima urejen status tujca in če izpolnjuje pogoje iz 1., 4., 5., 6., 7., 8., 9. in 10. točke prvega odstavka 10. člena tega zakona.“
