How many years do you need to live in Slovakia to get citizenship by naturalization 🗓️
We remind you that naturalization is a legal process of acquiring citizenship based on your voluntary desire. One of the most important conditions for naturalization is the qualifying period (time of residence in the country).
☝️ Not all countries can acquire citizenship through naturalization. The timing is also very different. For some, it is 2 years, for others 25 years.
There is such an opportunity in Slovakia. To obtain citizenship by naturalization, you must have resided permanently in the country for at least 10 years immediately prior to applying. First, you get a residence permit and live with it for 5 years. Then you apply for permanent residence. And then you can apply for citizenship or stay with permanent residence – at your discretion.
