USCIS Form N-648

The USCIS Form N-648 is a legitimate paper designed for those who are interested in naturalization and want to demonstrate their knowledge of the English language. To prove their knowledge, candidates need to show they can speak, understand, and read in English. Also, they need to show they know the history, political system, and basic law principles of the USA.

Form N-648 is meant for the candidates who want to request an exception to the civics requirement or the English language proficiency test. For requesting such an exception, a candidate must obtain a developmental, physical, or mental incapacity for a minimum of 12 months.

Who Needs To Fill Out Form N-648?

If candidates want to fill the Form N-648, they need to do this at the time they submit Form N-400 Application for Naturalization with the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). USCIS usually requires candidates to complete a Form N-648 together with a Form N-400.

According to the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) section (b)(1):

  • Candidates can skip completing civics demands and/or English language proficiency if they have a developmental, physical, or mental incapacity.
  • A verified medical worker has to complete the Form six months after the Form N-400 was transferred to USCIS.

As stated in the Rehabilitation Act of 1973:

  • Candidates don’t need to fill the Form N-648 and fulfill the civics requirements and the proof of English language proficiency if they don’t have a developmental, physical, or mental incapacity.
  • If candidates want to request a placement, they need to state that in Form N-648.
  • If you request a placement but cannot meet the civics demands and the English language proficiency, you have to fill the Form N-648 as illiteracy can’t be considered the ground for skipping the necessity of meeting the civics demands and the proof of English language proficiency.

Who can verify the Form N-648:

  • Osteopathic doctors
  • Medical doctors
  • Clinical psychologists

These categories of medical workers can verify the Form N-648 if only they have a license allowing them to work in the USA.
