What do you need to know to pass your U.S. Naturalization test?

1. Don't be late and don't miss the test.

It's important to come at least 30 minutes before the scheduled test. If you are late and miss the test, your case will close. You then have 1 year to re-open your case or your application will be denied.

2. Bring all your identification documents.

Bring any additional documents that USCIS has asked you to bring with you (in a letter).

3. Tell the truth.

If you have had any arrests or convictions, it is important for you to speak with an attorney, but definitely don't lie about your past.

4. Answer all the questions.

During the interview you will be asked about your past, where you live and how long you have lived there, how you feel about the U.S. Constitution, and whether you can take an Oath of Allegiance to the United States.

a. You may be required to take a basic English test, but you may also be exempt from that requirement.

b. You will be required to take a 100 question with basic questions about the United States.

Additional critical points you need to know:

  1. USCIS will look back at your entire immigration history.
  2. Arrests and Crimes are Serious. If you have had any arrests, seek assistance from an immigration lawyer and get advice.
  3. The "70 Rule" You do not need to take the test in English but still must take the Civics test once you are: 50 years of age or older when filing for naturalization test with green card for 20 years OR 55 years of age or older when filing for naturalization test with having a green card for 15 years.
  4. The "85 Rule" If you are 65 years of age or older when filing for naturalization test (with green card for 20 years) you are supposed to be given special consideration on the civics questions.
