Abstract of Proposed Collection

    Under 22 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 211a et seq. and 
Executive Order 11295 (August 5, 1966), the Secretary of State has 
authority to issue U.S. passports to U.S. citizens and non-citizen 
nationals. When the bearer of a valid U.S. passport applies for the 
addition of visa pages to that passport, the Department must confirm 
the applicant's identity and eligibility to receive passport services 
before the Department can return the passport to the applicant with 
additional visa pages. Form DS-4085 requests information that is 
necessary to determine whether the applicant is eligible to receive 
passport services in accordance with the requirements of Title III of 
the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) (U.S.C. sections 1402-1504), 
the regulations at 22 CFR parts 50 and 51, and other applicable 
authorities.

Methodology

    Passport Services collects information from U.S. citizens and non-
citizen nationals when they complete and submit the Application for 
Additional Visa Pages or Miscellaneous Passport Services. Passport 
applicants can either download the DS-4085 from the internet or obtain 
one from an Acceptance Facility/Passport Agency. The form must be 
completed, signed, and submitted along with the applicant's valid U.S. 
passport.

Additional Information

    In addition to general format changes, the following content 
changes have been made to the form.
     Page 1 Form--Under Line Item 15, Travel Plans: The words 
``Date of Trip'' have been replaced with ``Departure Date'' and the 
words ``Duration of Trip'' have been replaced with ``Return Date''.
     Page 1 Form--In the first signature block, ``Applicant's 
Signature--age 16 and older'', the word ``Legal'' has been added before

Guardian's Signature (if identifying minor)'' has been revised to now 
read ``Mother/Father/Parent/Legal Guardian's Signature (if identifying

increase in the current burden time of 20 minutes.
