The US Citizenship test is the last step for investors to become an official U.S citizen. Since 2009, this will be the first time The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has made any changes to this test.

- Have resided in the US as a lawful permanent resident for at least 5 years
- The actual residence time in the US is at least 30 months

Last year, the USCIS naturalized more than 750,000 people, which the agency says is a five-year high. The USCIS reports a national pass rate of 90% for the citizenship test and says a pilot of its revisions will be rolled out this fall.
In the context that President Trump is making moves to tighten all immigration paths, USCIS has considered changing some parts of the citizenship test, namely that the US Department of Immigration will change the content in civil rights and duties. For the English test, the questions will also be changed. However, Ken Cuccinelli denied that this action was intended to reduce the rate of successful naturalization.
After the study period the new citizenship test is expected to be applied in December 2020 or early 2021. Currently the US government is trying to use every measure to screen immigrants, although the content changes in The Citizenship test has not been announced yet, but the change is certain.
