Anyone in Florida who has had any exposure at all to the immigration processes in this country knows how complicated things can get and how nerve-racking certain steps in any given part of the process can seem. For those who are trying to become naturalized US citizens, one particular step may leave them feeling the most anxiety: the naturalization interview and test. So, what should you know about that part of the naturalization process?
Interview and test basics
Well, for the interview, the individual you meet with from US Citizenship and Immigration Services will have one primary source for all of the questions: you. The information that you provide in your application for naturalization, as well as information that comes up in your background check, will usually be the primary drivers of any and all questions you’ll need to be prepared to answer in your interview.
The test, on the other hand, presents another scenario altogether. First, you’ll need to demonstrate your familiarity with the English language – show that you can speak, write and read basic English. The other component of the test phase is a test about American civics – answering questions about US history and government. Fortunately, applicants for naturalized citizenship can always prepare themselves for the test part of the application process.
If you are thinking about applying for naturalized US citizenship, you probably already know that you will need to take the time to get through the step-by-step process that always comes with dealing with a government entity. If you are dedicated to the task and have the right legal information to guide you, US citizenship is an important reward for accomplishing your goals.
