USCIS to Change Citizenship Civics Test
In 2020, USCIS has gone through extensive lengths to limit immigration into the United States. It was announced earlier this month that they will take it one step further and make it more difficult for those going through the citizenship process.
The citizenship process includes a completion of the N-400 application and its requirements as well as passing the civics examination and being sworn in as a U.S. citizen. The civics portion is normally administered verbally in front of a USCIS officer.
What Will Be Different?
The new civics examination will add more questions to further test the applicants’ knowledge of U.S. history and civics.
What Will Be The Same?
The usual 60% passing score will remain the same and candidates can obtain this score by simply getting the first six questions right.
When applying for the naturalization process, we recommend contacting an experienced immigration attorney to avoid any potential pitfalls.
