The Immigration and Naturalization Act sets the legal requirement of conducting an American Citizenship Test for immigrants applying for citizenship in their country as mentioned in the United States Constitution. This has been made mandatory after the statutory law passed by the US Congress in 2001. The candidate applying must be at least 18 and the purpose of testing is to ensure the validity of application of the same. The test is conducted by USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services).

American Citizenship Requirements:

  • The candidate must be at least 18.
  • Must have secured a legal permanent resident status
  • Have been married to or living with a citizen for past three years
  • The spouse has been a citizen of the US for at least three years.
