Abstract of proposed collection: The Secretary of State is authorized to issue U.S. passports under 22 U.S.C. 211a et seq, 8 U.S.C. 1104, and Executive Order 11295 (August 5, 1966). Department regulations provide that individuals whose valid or potentially valid U.S. passports were lost or stolen must make a report of the lost or stolen passport to the Department of State before they receive a new passport, so that the lost or stolen passport can be PO 00000 Frm 00120 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15799 invalidated (22 CFR parts 50 and 51). The Enhanced Border Security and Visa Entry Reform Act of 2002 (8 U.S.C. 1737) requires the Department of State to collect accurate information on lost or stolen U.S. passports and to enter that information into a data system. Form DS–64 collects information identifying the person who held the lost or stolen passport and describing the circumstances under which the passport was lost or stolen. As required by the cited authorities, we use the information collected to accurately identify the passport that must be invalidated and to make a record of the circumstances surrounding the lost or stolen passport. False statements made knowingly or willfully on passport forms, in affidavits or other supporting documents are punishable by fine and/or imprisonment under U.S. law. (18 U.S.C. 1001, 1542– 1544). Methodology: This form is used in conjunction with a DS–11, ‘‘Application for a U.S. Passport’’, or submitted separately to report loss or theft of a U.S. passport. Passport Services collects the information when a U.S. citizen or noncitizen national applies for a new U.S. passport and has been issued a previous, still valid U.S. passport that has been lost or stolen, or when a passport holder independently reports it lost or stolen. Passport applicants can either download the form from the Internet or obtain the form at any Passport Agency, Acceptance Facility, Embassy, or Consulate. Additional Information: In addition to general format changes, the following content changes have been made to the form: • Section 1—the field ‘‘Driver’s License or Military ID Number’’ was added to assist in the prevention of fraudulently submitted DS–64 forms. • Section 2—was revised in its entirety breaking out the two main questions into items 2a through 2e to more efficiently organize the information we are requesting from the applicant. • Section 3—A numbered, dark blue ribbon with instructions was added to clearly delineate the form sections and thereby assist the applicant to more efficiently review the information on the form. • Section 3—the Department included a second signature and date line to allow for the signature of a second Parent/Guardian, if present, in keeping with the requirements of the DS–11 form. • Section 3—at the bottom of this section, the Department added the E:\FR\FM\12MRN1.SGM 12MRN1 15800 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 48 / Tuesday, March 12, 2013 / Notices following text below the second signature and date line: For a child under 16 ‘‘This form must be mailed in’’ and both parents or the child’s legal guardians(s) must sign the form. In case of sole custody, include a copy of the supporting document (court order) with this form. The Department estimates that these changes will not result in an increase in the current burden time of 5 minutes per respondent. Dated: February 25, 2013. Brenda S.

    Abstract of proposed collection:
    The Secretary of State is authorized to issue U.S. passports under 
22 U.S.C. 211a et seq, 8 U.S.C. 1104, and Executive Order 11295 (August 
5, 1966). Department regulations provide that individuals whose valid 
or potentially valid U.S. passports were lost or stolen must make a 
report of the lost or stolen passport to the Department of State before 
they receive a new passport, so that the lost or stolen passport can be 
invalidated (22 CFR parts 50 and 51). The Enhanced Border Security and 
Visa Entry Reform Act of 2002 (8 U.S.C. 1737) requires the Department 
of State to collect accurate information on lost or stolen U.S. 
passports and to enter that information into a data system. Form DS-64 
collects information identifying the person who held the lost or stolen 
passport and describing the circumstances under which the passport was 
lost or stolen. As required by the cited authorities, we use the 
information collected to accurately identify the passport that must be 
invalidated and to make a record of the circumstances surrounding the 
lost or stolen passport. False statements made knowingly or willfully 
on passport forms, in affidavits or other supporting documents are 
punishable by fine and/or imprisonment under U.S. law. (18 U.S.C. 1001, 
1542-1544).
    Methodology:
    This form is used in conjunction with a DS-11, ``Application for a 
U.S. Passport'', or submitted separately to report loss or theft of a 
U.S. passport. Passport Services collects the information when a U.S. 
citizen or non-citizen national applies for a new U.S. passport and has 
been issued a previous, still valid U.S. passport that has been lost or 
stolen, or when a passport holder independently reports it lost or 
stolen. Passport applicants can either download the form from the 
Internet or obtain the form at any Passport Agency, Acceptance 
Facility, Embassy, or Consulate.
    Additional Information:
    In addition to general format changes, the following content 
changes have been made to the form:
     Section 1--the field ``Driver's License or Military ID 
Number'' was added to assist in the prevention of fraudulently 
submitted DS-64 forms.
     Section 2--was revised in its entirety breaking out the 
two main questions into items 2a through 2e to more efficiently 
organize the information we are requesting from the applicant.
     Section 3--A numbered, dark blue ribbon with instructions 
was added to clearly delineate the form sections and thereby assist the 
applicant to more efficiently review the information on the form.
     Section 3--the Department included a second signature and 
date line to allow for the signature of a second Parent/Guardian, if 
present, in keeping with the requirements of the DS-11 form.
     Section 3--at the bottom of this section, the Department 
added the

[[Page 15800]]

following text below the second signature and date line:
    For a child under 16 ``This form must be mailed in'' and both 
parents or the child's legal guardians(s) must sign the form. In case 
of sole custody, include a copy of the supporting document (court 
order) with this form.
    The Department estimates that these changes will not result in an 
increase in the current burden time of 5 minutes per respondent.

    Dated: February 25, 2013.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Passport Services, Bureau of Consular 
Affairs, Department of State.
