Fit for Naturalization
At the end of the integration course, you write the German Test for Immigrants (Deutschtest für Zuwanderer – DTZ). This test can be taken at the ISK on a specific date every month. If you pass the DTZ successfully, you can use this as proof of your language skills at the A2 and B1 levels. The completion of the B1 level is proof of the language proficiency you require to become a German citizen. As the last part of the integration course, you attend the orientation course, which you complete by writing the “Living in Germany” test (Leben in Deutschland). The orientation course prepares you well to take this test. If you are able to answer 17 of the 33 questions correctly, you will have passed the naturalization test and receive a certificate documenting your knowledge of the German legal system and social order. Then there will be nothing more standing in the way of you becoming a German citizen.
For participants of our orientation courses the examination is free of charge.
External participants will be charged an examination fee for these examinations; this also includes a prior consultation.
