Important Updates Regarding the 2020 Version of the Civics Test

On Dec. 1, 2020, USCIS implemented a revised version of the civics test for naturalization (2020 civics test). Due to recent policy changes, some applicants required to take the 2020 civics test may now have a choice to take the 2020 test or the 2008 civics test. Please note that after April 19, 2021, USCIS will only offer the 2008 civics test at the initial interview appointment regardless of filing date.
