A diverse range of ethnic groups and nationalities characterizes the European Union. In other words, it is in the process of “diversifying its diversity”, which has necessitated the relaxation of immigration policies. The European Union is and will remain an immigration hotspot. Migrants arrive from all over the world, following new migration patterns.
Immigrants in European cities are undoubtedly on the rise. Some of them settle and adapt culturally to their new surroundings, enriching the local culture and the diversity of ethnocultural identities. Others maintain transnational connections and activities as well. Consequently, unique lifestyles, religions, perspectives, and cultures are constantly being introduced into the European social framework.

Relocation to European Union
The procedure of immigration includes various ways; however, only through a few of those options you can attain citizenship:
- By naturalization
- By repatriation (with assistance of CitizenSL)
- By birth in the Republic of Slovenia
In the context of Article 10, citizenship can be obtained by naturalization if a person has embarked on a path that meets the national interests of the Republic of Slovenia. However, this is of course associated with several conditions, in particular, the person must be 18 years of age, have a professional certification in the Slovenian language, and have lived in Slovenia for at least 10 years.
Repatriation is performed in accordance with Article 12, Citizenship Act of the Republic of Slovenia. The stages of that procedure:
- The entire repatriation process takes 6 months, plus the extra registration procedure or 12 months if it is a regular repatriation procedure;
- Internal document registration takes approximately 21 working days;
- International passport registration takes 14 working days (valid for 10 years) or 1 working day (valid for 1 year).
In accordance with Article 4, a child born to a Slovenian parent or a child who is born in the Republic of Slovenia can acquire citizenship. There are a few generational restrictions, i.e., one of the parents must hold a passport at the time of the child’s birth. In the scenario of acquiring citizenship by birth, if any one of the parents is not known, or they are unregistered, a child born on the territory of the Republic of Slovenia acquires the ID card.
