Hi, I'm Elizabeth,
Most people are required to demonstrate their knowledge of basic English reading, writing, and basic English skills. And take a Government and Civics test.
However, there are some applicants who can apply for an exemption to that, based on your age, how long you’ve lived in the U.S as a permanent residence or due to disability.
Depending on the age and length of time in the U.S. you may be exempt from the English test altogether, or you may be exempt from the English test and take the Civics test in the language of your choice.
If you have a disability you might be exempt from the test altogether and not have to be tested.
If you have additional questions or interested in becoming a Naturalized Citizen give our immigration attorneys in New Bern a call (800) 611-0821 , or reach us on Facebook or visit our website.
