New abridged B1 exam for citizenship applicants
19 September 2020

Due to the Covid situation the Italian Ministry of Internal Affairs has authorised some special abridged B1 Citizenship Exam sessions.
These sessions consist of an oral exam only (no written exam).

The certificate issued to those who pass this abridged B1 Citizenship Exam differs from the regular B1 certificate, in that it doesn’t state the marks and is only valid for Italian citizenship applications.

Registrations for the 19 September session are now open!
The price will be confirmed closer to the date, depending on the exchange rate and number of participants.

Book your spot now if you wish to participate.
