29 procent klarar inte medborgarskapstestet i Storbritannien

Inte bara Danmark ställer krav för att som invandrare få stanna permanent i landet. Sedan några år tillbaka krävs det i Storbritannien kunskaper i engelska och att man klarar av ett medborgarskapstest för att få permanent uppehållstillstånd och/eller medborgarskap. Senaste uppgifterna visar att nästan en tredjedel av dem som tar testen inte blir godkända.

Failure rates are highly differentiated by nationality. 98 percent of Australians, 97 percent of Americans and 96.9 percent of Canadians who took the test passed it. Other countries where English is widely spoken also fared relatively well with 90.2 percent of Zimbabweans and 82.5 percent of Nigerians passing. However, several nationalities with substantial numbers of migrants in the UK scored less than 50 percent. For example, only 47.9 percent of Iraqis, 47.8 percent of Afghans, 45.9 percent of Turks and 44 percent of Bangladeshis passed. Many Afghans and Iraqis are in the UK as refugees or with subsidiary protection. Although they do not need to pass the test to remain in the UK, their position is more secure after naturalisation. Other migrants, for example spouses or workers, cannot obtain a secure status without passing the test.
