The USCIS has made some significant changes in the way disabled immigrants can apply for naturalization for US citizenship. It’s a process that in the general course needs the applicant to go through specific tests. These include tests for English language skills and the knowledge of US history and its government.
The Joe Biden administration has reverted many decisions implemented by the Donald Trump administration regarding waivers in the naturalization test for disabled immigrants. In fact, these waivers from taking tests in English language and civics were granted way back in 1994.
But in 2020, the Trump administration implemented many additional requirements to decide the waiver. These requirements made the waiver a lengthier and harder one.
Now, the current US government has made the waiver more considerate. The disability waiver granted has been simplified and shortened considering the mental, physical, or learning disabilities of the immigrants applying for US citizenship. They can now submit Form N-648 to raise a request for an exception to the requirements like language and civics tests. US President Joe Biden has given an executive order to this effect.
