The VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:19 Nov 22, 2017 Jkt 244001 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 an officially sponsored Red Cross mission; (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 and signature; 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 may result in denial of a special validation to use a U.S. passport to travel to, in, or through a restricted country or area. Effective September 1, 2017, upon determining that there is imminent danger to the public health or physical safety of U.S. travelers in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), the Secretary of State imposed a passport restriction with respect to PO 00000 Frm 00118 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 travel to the DPRK. The estimated number of recipients represents the Department of State’s estimate of the annual number of special validations requests individuals will submit who wish to use their U.S. passport to travel to the DPRK, based on the current number of requests following the implementation of the Secretary of State’s passport restriction. At this time, there are no other countries or areas that are the subject of passport restrictions pursuant to 22 CFR 51.63. Methodology 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 is posted on a Web page maintained by the Department (travel.state.gov). The Web page directs 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 roundtrip to a restricted country or area, and to facilitate the application for a passport of such applicants.
