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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:17 Aug 25, 2016 Jkt 238001 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.
