A 9 December 1997 letter sent to the
Research Directorate by the second secretary of the Embassy of the
Republic of Slovenia in Ottawa states:
The law that regulates civil marriages is
the law of civil marriage and family relations, #SRS 15-644/76.
Unfortunately, I will have to send you the text at a later date.
Foreigners who marry Slovenian citizens do not automatically
acquire permanent residence status in Slovenia. They should apply
for permanent residence at the municipality of their residence.
Additional or corroborating information on
the above-mentioned topics could not be found among the additional
sources consulted by the Research Directorate.
This Response was prepared after
researching publicly accessible information currently available to
the Research Directorate within time constraints. This Response is
not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any
particular claim to refugee status or asylum. Please find below the
list of additional sources consulted in researching this
Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia,
Ottawa. 9 December 1997. Letter sent to the Research Directorate by
the second secretary.
