Hi, I'm immigration attorney Ricky Malick. Today, I'd like to talk about exemptions to the English language requirement for US citizenship. Oftentimes, I meet people who want to become US citizens but are unable to learn English in order to pass the US Citizenship and Immigration test. For those people, they have to determine whether they fit into any available exceptions that may permit them to either not take the test or take it in their own language. There are several built-in rules that are commonly known as the 50/20 and 55/15 rules. If someone is 50 years old and has been a US lawful permanent resident for 15 years, they can take the test in their own language or they are not required to demonstrate an understanding and usage of the English language. Alternatively, if they are 55 years old and have been a lawful permanent resident for at least fifteen years, they can qualify as well. Another lesser-known rule is for individuals who are 65 years old and have been a permanent resident for 20 years. Not only may they take the test in their own language, but they may even be exempt altogether from the civil test. For other people who don't qualify for the age and residency duration exceptions, they may seek a medical disability waiver, commonly known as an n648. This process is more complex and requires that the person demonstrate, with the expertise of a qualified physician or doctor, that they are unable to learn the English language. However, sometimes the problem is that the n648 completed by the doctor is not comprehensive enough to satisfy the immigration officer that the person cannot learn English or enough knowledge of history and civics to pass the test. So, I'd like to talk about what specifically is required in an n648...
