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 a new 
passport book and/or passport card with corrected personal data or when 
the bearer of a limited validity passport applies for a fully-valid 
replacement passport, the Department must confirm the applicant's 
identity and eligibility to receive passport services before the 
Department can issue the corrected or replacement passport to the 
applicant. Form DS-5504 requests information that is necessary to 
determine whether the applicant is eligible to receive this service 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 treaties and laws.

Methodology

    Passport Services collects information from U.S. citizens and non-
citizen nationals when they complete and submit the Application for a 
U.S. Passport: Name Change, Data Correction, And Limited Passport Book 
Replacement. Passport applicants can either download the DS-5504 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 and supporting documents for corrective 
action.

Additional Information

    In addition to general format changes, the following content 
changes have been made to the form:
     Page 3 Instructions--At the bottom of the page, a new 
section was added with the heading:
    ``Special Notice to U.S. Passport Card Applicants Only''.
    The section text follows:
    ``The maximum number of letters provided for your given name (first 
and middle) on the U.S. passport card is 24 characters. The 24 
characters may be shortened due to printing restrictions. 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 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.
