New Naturalization Test Updates for Civics Portion

By Ella Bergquist November 19, 2020 (Updated November 20, 2020) 1 min. read
US naturalization test civics 2020

In order to become a US Citizen, you will be required to pass a Naturalization Test. The naturalization test has two parts, English and Civics. All applicants for naturalization filed on or after December 1st will be required to take the new version of the civics test.

2020 Civics Test Version

Previously the civics portion of the naturalization test had 10 questions from the list of 100 civics test questions. The 2020 version of the civics test is an oral test, and the USCIS officer will ask 20 questions from the list of 128 civics test questions. You must answer 12 of the 20 questions correctly to pass the civic portion of the naturalization test.

This does mean that the civics portion of the naturalization test will be a bit more difficult than previous versions. Before taking the US citizenship test be sure to study, practice, and have your immigration lawyer prepare you.

When you get the opportunity to go to the US for work from abroad, then I would say VisaPlace would be your best option to get all your documents in place. My 5 star feedback is based on the help I received from Danielle Grbic as she was really professional, I would straight away ask for Danielle to be in charge of your process. From the time that Danielle took over my case I felt confident that it will go well and at the end it went smoother than expected. On my own I would never have been able to get this internal work transfer done as a L1 visa and was best for the professionals to take charge. After arriving in the US, Danielle was still happy to assist with documents and advise. A huge thanks to Danielle and VisaPlace

I spoke with Lilly last week and she’s incredible. Very informative and you can tell she definably cares about her job. She wasn’t pushy at all and she’s there to help you figure out if this service is right for you. I’d recommend contacting VisaPlace if you’re thinkin of traveling internationally and you have questions about the different types of permits.

I had a great experience with Andrew Diamond from The Visa Place. Andrew was very knowledgable and helped us every step of the way. When we had a discrepancy with my spouse’s Visa Andrew helped us navigate the system in the USA. He even offered to speak directly to the customs and border control officer to help us iron out the situation. Overall the experience was very good and smooth. I highly recommend Andrew and his services at The Visa Place.

Extremely satisfied with the professionalism, expertise, efficiency, speed and thoroughness at which my file was managed. Fadi & Danielle are true class acts! Their response times were fantastic (especially during a high-stress period), their quality of work was phenomenal, and their willingness to go the extra mile (without hidden costs, no less!) to prepare me for my work permit interview was unmatched. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel as it relates to cross-border services. Highest Regards, Krista
