Granting of nationality is free of charge and renunciation of previous nationality is no longer required. To be sure, the reacquisition of Austrian nationality by political emigrants is numerically not significant, but has above all symbolic and political importance. Still, it is noteworthy that between 1993 and 2001, approximately 1,800 political emigrants regained Austrian nationality, whereas the number of political emigrants who reacquired Austrian nationality between 1965 and 1992 amounted to roughly 350 (Burger & Wendelin 2004: 6).

Despite demanding conditions for naturalisation, a steadily increasing number of immigrants acquired Austrian nationality as they fulfilled the general residence requirement of ten years.

I/II from 1983-88) and by notification (§ 58c). In other words, acquisitions by descent (§ 7, § 8) and legitimation (§ 7a) and automatic acquisitions upon taking office as a professor at an Austrian university (§ 25 (1)) are not covered. 5 per cent) of them had their residence abroad. However, roughly 48 per cent of all naturalisations already occurred in the 1940s and 1950s, when a large number of ethnic Germans (‘Volksdeutsche’) and other refugees from Central and Eastern Europe were granted nationality.
