If both your given names are more than 24 characters, you must shorten one of your given names you list on item 1 of this form’’. • Page 1 Form—In the photograph box, the words ‘‘Submit a recent color photograph’’ have been replaced with ‘‘Attach a color photograph taken within the last six months’’. • Page 1 Form—In the first signature block, ‘‘Applicant’s Signature—age 16 and older’’, the word ‘‘Legal’’ has been added before ‘‘Signature’’. • Page 1 Form—The second signature block ‘‘Parent’s/Legal Guardian’s Signature’’ has been revised to now read ‘‘Mother/Father/Parent/Legal Guardian’s Signature (if identifying minor)’’. • Page 2 Form—Line Item 19, 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 2 Form—Under the Yes and No blocks in the last section, the statement: ‘‘If yes, please submit evidence of your United States citizenship and/or PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 24783 evidence of your identity.’’ has been replaced by: ‘‘If yes, please submit evidence of your United States citizenship (such as a government birth certificate) and/or evidence of your identity (such as a driver’s license or a state issued identification (ID) card).’’ The Department estimates that these changes will not result in an increase in the current burden time of 30 minutes.
