Here is the conclusion to our three-part blog series Exceptions to USCIS Citizenship Requirements.
While the first two parts of this blog series focused on pointing out the specific exceptions to USCIS citizenship requirements that people may be able to take advantage of, here, we will discuss some of the additional accommodations that may be made as impaired people move through the U.S. naturalization process.
USCIS Accommodations (That May Be Used with Exceptions to USCIS Citizenship Requirements)
In addition to the various exceptions to USCIS citizenship requirements that have been explained thus far in this blog series, there are also the following accommodations that may be made by USCIS:
Disability accommodations – Per the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, USCIS can make various accommodations for people with physical and/or mental impairments that may impact their ability to complete any part of the naturalization process.
In the event you or someone you love is living with any significant physical and/or mental impairments and will be applying for U.S. citizenship, be sure to list all of these impairments and needs on the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.
- Accommodations for the Oath of Allegiance – While people going through the naturalization process are required to take an oath of allegiance to the U.S. in a public ceremony (as one of the final steps in the process), there are various accommodations that can be made for people who may have trouble completing this requirement, based on (of course) people’s impairments.If taking the oath of allegiance may present an issue for you or a loved one, you can consult USCIS for more info on the various accommodations that can be made for this requirement.
