It is the most common method of acquiring citizenship by a minor, as it is automatic – it does not require filling applications or initiating any procedure. This method is also called the law or the rule of blood.
Other methods of acquiring citizenship are defined in the Act of 2 April 2009 on Polish Citizenship. It specifies four methods of acquiring citizenship:
- by virtue of the law
- by granting Polish citizenship
- by recognition of a person as a Polish citizen
