Abstract of proposed collection: The information collected on the DS– 5525, ‘‘Statement of Exigent/Special Family Circumstances for Issuance of a U.S. Passport to a Minor under Age 16’’, is used in conjunction with the DS–11, ‘‘Application for a U.S. Passport’’. The DS–5525 can serve as the statement describing exigent or special family circumstances, which is required if written consent of the non-applying parent or guardian cannot be obtained when the passport application is executed for a minor under age 16. The statement must explain the reason for the request. The legal authority permitting this information assists the U.S. Department of State to administer the regulations in 22 CFR 51.28 requiring that both parents and/or any guardian consent to the issuance of a passport to a minor under age 16, except where one parent has sole custody or certain exceptions apply. This regulation was mandated by Section 236 of the Admiral James W. Nance and Meg Donovan Foreign Relations authorization Act, Fiscal Year 2000 and 2001 (enacted by Pub. L. 106– 113, Div. B, Section 1000 (a)(7)), and helps to prevent international child VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:01 Jun 19, 2013 Jkt 229001 abduction, child trafficking, and other forms of passport fraud. Methodology: Passport Services collects information from U.S. citizens and non-citizen nationals when they complete and submit the DS–5525, ‘‘Statement of Exigent/Special Family Circumstances for Issuance of a U.S. Passport to a Minor under Age 16’’. Passport applicants can either download the DS– 5525 from the internet or obtain the form from an Acceptance Facility/ Passport Agency. The form must be completed, signed, and submitted along with the applicant’s DS–11, ‘‘Application for a U.S. Passport’’. Additional Information: Under the currently approved OMB collection 1405–0129, the DS 3053 collects both the Statement of Consent and the Statement of Exigent/Special Family Circumstances. However, the proposed collection will request this information using two separate forms to ensure that we more clearly communicate to the public what is and what is not a special family circumstance. Separating out the forms also allows the passport specialist to more clearly control and adjudicate those cases that do not qualify as a special family circumstance: • DS–3053, ‘‘Statement of Consent: Issuance of a Passport to a Minor under Age 16,’’ and • DS–5525, ‘‘Statement of Exigent/ Special Family Circumstances for Issuance of a Passport to a Minor under Age 16.’’ • In addition to general format changes, an oath will be placed onto the proposed DS–5525 form. The oath is located above the signature line on Page 2 of the form and states: ‘‘OATH: I declare under penalty of perjury that all statements made in this supporting document are true and correct.’’ Dated: June 7, 2013.

    Abstract of proposed collection:
    The information collected on the DS-5525, ``Statement of Exigent/
Special Family Circumstances for Issuance of a U.S. Passport to a Minor 
under Age 16'', is used in conjunction with the DS-11, ``Application 
for a U.S. Passport''. The DS-5525 can serve as the statement 
describing exigent or special family circumstances, which is required 
if written consent of the non-applying parent or guardian cannot be 
obtained when the passport application is executed for a minor under 
age 16. The statement must explain the reason for the request.
    The legal authority permitting this information assists the U.S. 
Department of State to administer the regulations in 22 CFR 51.28 
requiring that both parents and/or any guardian consent to the issuance 
of a passport to a minor under age 16, except where one parent has sole 
custody or certain exceptions apply. This regulation was mandated by 
Section 236 of the Admiral James W. Nance and Meg Donovan Foreign 
Relations authorization Act, Fiscal Year 2000 and 2001 (enacted by Pub. 
L. 106-113, Div. B, Section 1000 (a)(7)), and helps to prevent 
international child abduction, child trafficking, and other forms of 
passport fraud.
    Methodology:
    Passport Services collects information from U.S. citizens and non-
citizen nationals when they complete and submit the DS-5525, 
``Statement of Exigent/Special Family Circumstances for Issuance of a 
U.S. Passport to a Minor under Age 16''. Passport applicants can either 
download the DS-5525 from the internet or obtain the form from an 
Acceptance Facility/Passport Agency. The form must be completed, 
signed, and submitted along with the applicant's DS-11, ``Application 
for a U.S. Passport''.
    Additional Information:
    Under the currently approved OMB collection 1405-0129, the DS 3053 
collects both the Statement of Consent and the Statement of Exigent/
Special Family Circumstances. However, the proposed collection will 
request this information using two separate forms to ensure that we 
more clearly communicate to the public what is and what is not a 
special family circumstance. Separating out the forms also allows the 
passport specialist to more clearly control and adjudicate those cases 
that do not qualify as a special family circumstance:
     DS-3053, ``Statement of Consent: Issuance of a Passport to 
a Minor under Age 16,'' and
     DS-5525, ``Statement of Exigent/Special Family 
Circumstances for Issuance of a Passport to a Minor under Age 16.''
     In addition to general format changes, an oath will be 
placed onto the proposed DS-5525 form. The oath is located above the 
signature line on Page 2 of the form and states: ``OATH: I declare 
under penalty of perjury that all statements made in this supporting 
document are true and correct.''
