Home  »  Knowledge base  »  Can I get the English and/or U.S. Government and History requirements for citizenship waived based on a disability or impairment?

If you have a physical or developmental disability or mental impairment that prevents you from demonstrating your knowledge and understanding of the English language and/or civics requirements for naturalization, you may qualify for an exemption to certain parts of the naturalization test.

You must submit an original Form N-648, Medical Certification for Disability Exceptions which must have been prepared by a licensed medical doctor or licensed clinical psychologist less than 6 months prior to filing Form N-400. The best time to submit this form is with your Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. You are allowed to bring Form N-648 to your interview, but this may delay your case.

To apply for a disability exception, your disability:

  • Must be at least 1 year old (or be expected to last 1 year); and
  • Must not have been caused by illegal drug use.
