3. Be a person of good moral character.
4. Demonstrate knowledge of History and Government of the United States and be able to read, write, and understand English.
A. English Exceptions: There are 3 important exemptions for English testing based on age and time as a Legal Permanent Resident:
1. You are at least 50 and have been a Permanent Resident for at least 20 years.
2. You are at least 55 and have bee n a Permanent Resident for at least 15 years.
3. You are at least 65 and have been a Permanent Resident for at least 20 years.
If you do not have to take the English test, you must bring an interpreter to the interview.
B. Civics. You must correctly answer 6 out of 10 questions on the civics test in order to pass. You will be required to study from a list of 100 possible questions.
However, if you are at least 65 and have been a Permanent Resident for at least 20 years, you can study from a designated list of just 20 questions.
If you have certain medical conditions, you may not have to take either exam. A currently licensed medical professional must complete Form N-648 (Medical Certification for Disability Exceptions) if you believe you have a medical condition that warrants an exemption.
These are just a few of the many advantages you will enjoy once you become an American Citizen:
