The issuance of U.S. passports requires the determination of identity, nationality, and entitlement, with reference to the provisions of Title III of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) (8 U.S.C. 1401–1504), the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, other applicable treaties and laws, and implementing regulations at 22 CFR parts 50 and 51.

Abstract of Proposed Collection

    The information collected on the DS-82 is used to facilitate the 
issuance of passports to U.S. citizens and nationals. The primary 
purpose of soliciting the information is to establish citizenship, 
identity, and entitlement to the issuance of the U.S. passport or 
related service, and to properly administer and enforce the laws 
pertaining to the issuance thereof.
    DS-82 solicits data necessary for Passport Services to issue a 
United States passport (book and/or card format) pursuant to 
authorities granted to the Secretary of State by 22 U.S.C. 211a et seq. 
and Executive Order (E.O.) 11295 (August 5, 1966) for the issuance of 
passports to U.S. nationals.
    The issuance of U.S. passports requires the determination of 
identity, nationality, and entitlement, with reference to the 
provisions of Title III of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) (8 
U.S.C. 1401-1504), the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United 
States, other applicable treaties and laws, and implementing 
regulations at 22 CFR parts 50 and 51. The specific regulations 
pertaining to the Application for a U.S. Passport by Mail are at 22 CFR 
51.20 through 51.21.

Methodology

    Passport Services collects information from U.S. citizens and non-
citizen nationals who complete and submit the U.S. Passport Renewal 
Application. Passport applicants can either download the DS-82 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 previous U.S. passport.
    U.S. citizens overseas may download the DS-82 from the Internet or 
obtain one from the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate, along with the 
procedures to be followed when applying overseas.

Additional Information

    The Privacy Act statement has been amended to clarify that an 
applicant's failure to provide his or her Social Security number may 
result in the denial of an application, consistent with 22 U.S.C. 
2714a(f) which authorizes the Department to deny U.S. passport 
applications when the applicant failed to include his or her Social 
Security number. These requirements and the underlying legal 
authorities are further described on page 3 of the instruction titled 
``Federal Tax Law'' which has also been amended to include a reference 
to 22 U.S.C. 2714a(f).
    Additionally, the proposed renewal of form DS-82 includes updated 
instruction regarding the eyeglass policy change, which prohibits 
applicants from wearing eyeglasses in passport photographs, unless the 
applicant presents a signed statement from a doctor demonstrating that 
the glasses must be worn due to medical reasons. The form also states 
that passport photos may include hats or head coverings only when they 
are worn continuously as part of recognized, traditional religious 
attire, or when the hat or head covering is worn for medical purposes 
as stated by a doctor in a signed statement.
