Einbürgerung Basel-Stadt during Covid times

Dear Forum Members,
I fulfill the requirements to apply for Einbürgerung in Basel -Stadt and will apply soon. I am searching for information regarding the oral exam and preparation for it. Currently the course offered by the Basel Gemeinde "Fit für Basel" is fully booked until June inclusive. Has anyone experienced going through the application and exam preparation/oral test during Covid times? I would like to get some info/ find alternative learning materials, since the course is booked such a long time in advance. Thank you for sharing your direct experience or info!

Re: Einbürgerung Basel-Stadt during Covid times

Hi,

I am going through the process at the moment and i n case you haven’t applied yet it will take a while before you will have to talk prepare for the exam. A bit of timelines for me. I first presented me at the office in October 2019. Before I could officially file the request it was already January 2020 because of a few documents which were missing. I had the first interview (not the exam, just a let’s meet before you move on) in September and ii took the course in November. The gemeinde said it was too early as the exam is not expected before spring/summer but because I have to undergo surgeries we both agreed that the time was more convenient for me and I was admitted.

Good luck
