New questions for U.S. citizenship test now in effect

Visa Bureau is not affiliated with the Australian Government but is an independent UK company. Australian visas are available from the Australian Government at a lower cost or for free when you apply directly. Our comprehensive visa and immigration services include immigration advice from registered migration agents, a 100% success rate, document checking and expedited visa processing.

As of yesterday, 01 October 2008, new questions for the American citizenship test have replaced the old questions, making the test results more reflective of a comprehensive understanding of American society and the English language.

The test is a necessary process for America visa holders to become naturalised, and all applications for citizenship filed after 01 October 2008 will be subject to the new exam.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) changed the set of questions for the test so that some questions can now have more than one answer.  The test asks basic questions about American democracy, history, and civic life (including geography, symbols, and public holidays).

According to KAPPTV.com, the new test questions with mulptiple answers reflects the government’s policy that they want new American citizens to understand the answers they provide rather than committing single answers to memory.
