USCIS has revised the civics portion of the naturalization test.
Applicants for naturalization with a “filing” date (also known as a receipt date) on or after Dec. 1, 2020, are required to take the 2020 version of the civics test.
- Applicants for naturalization with a “filing” date before Dec. 1, 2020, are required to take the 2008 version of the civics test.
The naturalization test has two components: an English and civics test. The English portion has not changed. Whether you are taking the 2008 or 2020 version of the civics test, you will take the same English test.
Here are the 2020 Civics Test Updates:
23. Who is one of your state’s U.S. senators now?
29. Name your U.S. representative.
30. What is the name of the Speaker of the House of Representatives now?
38. What is the name of the President of the United States now?
39. What is the name of the Vice President of the United States now?
57. Who is the Chief Justice of the United States now?
61. Who is the governor of your state now?
62. What is the capital of your state?
On the civics test, some answers may change because of elections or appointments. You must answer the question with the name of the official serving at the time of your naturalization interview.
Important: It is important that you seek the latest information at the time you will be taking your test, because the above referenced information is subject to change. Thank you, and many blessings with your future endeavors.
