What is the German citizenship / naturalization test?
In order to complete the naturalization of people without German citizenship, successful participation in the naturalization test is required. The naturalization test serves as proof of knowledge of the legal and social order and the living conditions in Germany.
Who has to take the citizenship test and who doesn’t?
People who live permanently in Germany without German citizenship, meet the naturalization requirements and apply for naturalization at the naturalization authority are obliged to take the naturalization test. The naturalization test, in which knowledge of the legal and social order and living conditions in Germany is proven, does not have to be taken by persons under 16 years of age.
The same applies to people who are mentally, physically or emotionally incapable of taking the naturalization test. Also exempt from the list of questions is anyone who has a German school leaving certificate or who can prove that they have successfully completed a degree at a German university in the fields of law, social sciences, social sciences, political or administrative sciences.
