Notice of Information Collection Under OMB Emergency Review: Request for Approval To Travel to a Restricted Country or Area, 36065-36067 [2017-16286]

Download as PDF sradovich on DSKBCFCHB2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 147 / Wednesday, August 2, 2017 / Notices that all respondents provide tangible copies of the required documents) is approximately 2,060 hours (1,030 third party disclosure hours + 1,030 recordkeeping hours). The burden hours associated with Rule 15g–2 may be slightly reduced when the penny stock disclosure document required under the rule is provided through electronic means such as email from the broker-dealer (e.g., the broker-dealer respondent may take only one minute, instead of the two minutes estimated above, to provide the penny stock disclosure document by email to its customer). In this regard, if each of the customer respondents estimated above communicates with his or her broker-dealer electronically, the total ongoing respondent burden is approximately 1 minute per response, or an aggregate total of 156 minutes (156 customers × 1 minutes per respondent). Assuming 198 respondents, the annual third party disclosure burden, if electronic communications were used by all customers, is 30,888 minutes (156 minutes per each of the 198 respondents) or 515 hours. If all respondents were to use electronic means, the recordkeeping burden would be 61,776 minutes or 1,030 hours (the same as above). Thus, if all brokerdealer respondents obtain and send the documents required under the rules electronically, the aggregate annual hour burden associated with Rule 15g–2 is 1,545 (515 hours + 1,030 hours). In addition, if the penny stock customer requests a paper copy of the information on the Commission’s Web site regarding microcap securities, including penny stocks, from his or her broker-dealer, the printing and mailing of the document containing this information takes no more than two minutes per customer. Because many investors have access to the Commission’s Web site via computers located in their homes, or in easily accessible public places such as libraries, then, at most, a quarter of customers who are required to receive the Rule 15g–2 disclosure document request that their broker-dealer provide them with the additional microcap and penny stock information posted on the Commission’s Web site. Thus, each broker-dealer respondent processes approximately 39 requests for paper copies of this information per year or an aggregate total of 78 minutes per respondent (2 minutes per customer × 39 requests per respondent). Since there are 198 respondents, the estimated annual burden is 15,444 minutes (78 minutes per each of the 198 respondents) or 257 hours. This is a third party disclosure type of burden. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:43 Aug 01, 2017 Jkt 241001 We have no way of knowing how many broker-dealers and customers will choose to communicate electronically. Assuming that 50 percent of respondents continue to provide documents and obtain signatures in tangible form and 50 percent choose to communicate electronically to satisfy the requirements of Rule 15g–2, the total aggregate burden hours would be 2,060 ((aggregate burden hours for sending disclosure documents and obtaining signed customer acknowledgements in tangible form × 0.50 of the respondents = 1,030 hours) + (aggregate burden hours for electronically signed and transmitted documents × 0.50 of the respondents = 773 hours) + (257 burden hours for those customers making requests for a copy of the information on the Commission’s Web site)). Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

Abstract of Proposed Collection

    The Secretary of State may exercise authority, under 22 U.S.C. 
211a, Executive Order 11295 (August 5, 1966), and 22 CFR 51.63, to 
invalidate all U.S. passports for travel to a country or area if he 
determines that any of three conditions exist: The country is at war 
with the United States; armed hostilities are in progress in the 
country or area; or there is imminent danger to the public health or 
physical safety of U.S. travelers in the country or area. The 
regulations of the Department of State provide that an individual's 
passport may be considered for validation for travel to, in, or through 
a country or area despite such restriction if the individual's travel 
is determined to fall within one of several categories established by 
the regulations. 22 CFR 51.64. Without the requisite validation, use of 
a U.S. passport for travel to, in, or through a restricted country or 
area may justify revocation of the passport for misuse under 22 CFR 
51.62(a)(2) and subject the traveler to felony prosecution under 18 
U.S.C. 1544 for misuse of a passport or other applicable laws.
    The categories of persons specified in 22 CFR 51.64(b) as being 
eligible for consideration for passport validation are as follows:
    (a) An applicant who is a professional reporter and journalist 
whose trip is for the purpose of collecting and making available to the 
public information about the restricted country or area;
    (b) An applicant who is a representative of the American Red Cross 
or the International Committee of the Red Cross on official mission to 
the restricted country or area;
    (c) An applicant whose trip to the restricted country or area is 
justified by compelling humanitarian considerations; or
    (d) An applicant whose trip to the restricted country or area is 
otherwise in the national interest.
    The proposed information collection solicits data necessary for the 
Passport Services Directorate to determine whether an applicant is 
eligible to receive a special validation in his or her U.S. passport 
book permitting the applicant to make one round-trip to a restricted 
country or area. The information requested consists of the applicant's 
name, a copy of the front and back of the applicant's valid government-
issued photo identification card with the applicant's date of birth, 
current contact information, including telephone number and mailing 
address, and a statement explaining the reason that the applicant 
thinks his or her trip is in the national interest, supported by 
documentary evidence. Failure to provide the requested information will 
result in denial of a special validation to use a U.S. passport to 
travel to, in, or through a restricted country or area.
    The estimated number of recipients represents the Department of 
State's estimate of the number of persons who will request special 
validations to use their U.S. passport to travel to the Democratic 
People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), following implementation of a 
passport restriction that will become effective thirty days after 
publication of the Secretary of State's determination that there is 
imminent danger to the public health or physical safety of U.S. 
travelers in the DPRK. At this time, there are no other countries or 
areas that are the subject of passport restrictions pursuant to 22 CFR 
51.63. In its next request to continue collecting information from 
individuals applying for special validations to travel in, to, or 
through a restricted country or area, the Department of State will 
update the estimated number of recipients based on its experience.

Methodology

    The Department of State will post instructions for individuals 
seeking to apply for a special validation to use a U.S. passport to 
travel to, in, or through a restricted country or area on travel 
information Web site maintained by the Department (travel.state.gov). 
Applicants at U.S. embassies and consulates abroad and at domestic 
passport agencies and centers will be directed to this Web site for 
additional information. The Web site will direct applicants to submit 
the requested information via email to the Passport Services 
Directorate (PPTSpecialValidations@state.gov) or by mail to Special 
Validations, U.S. Department of State, CA/PPT/L/LA, 44132 Mercure 
Circle, P.O. Box 1227, Sterling, VA 20166-1227.
    Information collected in this manner will be used to facilitate the 
granting of special validations to U.S. nationals who are eligible. The 
primary purpose of soliciting the information is to establish whether 
an applicant is within one of the categories specified in the 
regulations of the Department of State codified at 22 CFR 51.64(b) and 
therefore eligible to be issued a U.S. passport containing a special 
validation enabling him or her to make one round-trip to a restricted 
country or area, and to facilitate the application for a passport of 
such applicants.
