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 beginning on April 19, 2021, USCIS will only offer the 2008 civics test at the initial interview appointment regardless of filing date.

For more information, visit The 2020 Version of the Civics Test page.

On Labor Day, Americans celebrate the contributions that workers have made and continue to make in the United States of America. Each Labor Day, USCIS pays tribute to those workers, both native- and foreign-born, who have given their talents and time to make this country better. 

Prospective citizens may see Labor Day in several places on the naturalization test. “Labor Day” is one answer to the civics test question, “Name two national U.S. holidays.”  Labor Day is also one of the holidays that applicants may be required to read or write as part of the English test.

For Labor Day, we want to highlight some of the resources USCIS offers for learners and teachers that are related to this important day.


USCIS has educational materials to help you learn about the United States and prepare for the naturalization process. Here are several products that talk about Labor Day:
