Many Israelis, living in the US are in the process of obtaining US citizenship. One of the stages in the process is a personal interview in which the candidate is asked personal questions, and is also required to provide at least 6 correct answers to 10 questions. These 10 questions are all related to public administration, government and US history. These are 10 out of 100 questions published by the USCIS. The questions are all about issues which are very clear to Americans, but Israelis find them hard to answer. Most candidates develop fears and anxiety towards the test and do their best to avoid it as long as possible.
Without the personal interview – you can’t obtain US citizenship.
The candidates may be tested twice and if they fail, they need to start the process all over again and, of course, pay again.
