Residents of Vienna applying for Austrian citizenship must first pass a question and answer test currently being compiled by the city councils office for integration. Applicants will be asked six questions about the citys monuments, buildings, historic figures and events, as well as its role as the headquarters for numerous international organizations. Hopeful candidates for citizenship will also be asked questions about the rest of Austria. According to council officials, the tests should be ready by June. Strong criticism of the citizenship exam has been raised by the Vienna Green Party, which claims that if current citizens were required to sit the test, large numbers of Austrians would be stripped of their citizenship.
