Abstract of Proposed Collection

    Form DS-10, Birth Affidavit, is submitted in conjunction with an 
application for a U.S. passport, and is used by Passport Services to 
collect information for the purpose of establishing the U.S. 
nationality of a passport applicant who has not submitted an acceptable 
United States birth certificate with his/her passport application. The 
Secretary of State is authorized to issue U.S. passports under 22 
U.S.C. 211a et seq, 8 U.S.C. 1104, and Executive Order 11295 (August 5, 
1966). Pursuant to 22 U.S.C. 212 and 22 CFR 51.2, only U.S. nationals 
may be issued a U.S. passport. Most passport applicants show U.S. 
nationality by providing a birth certificate showing the applicant was 
born in the United States. Some applicants, however, may have been born 
in the United States (and subject to its jurisdiction), but were never 
issued a birth certificate. Form DS-10 is a form affidavit for 
completion by a witness to the birth of such an applicant; it collects 
information relevant to establishing the identity of the affiant, and 
the birth circumstances of the passport applicant. If credible, the 
affidavit may permit the applicant to show U.S. nationality based on 
the applicant's birth in the United States, despite never having been 
issued a U.S. birth certificate. We use the information collected on 
the person completing the affidavit to confirm that individual's 
identity, which is relevant to confirming his or her relationship to 
the applicant and the likelihood that the affiant has actual knowledge 
of the circumstances of the applicant's birth.

Methodology

    When needed, a form DS-10, Birth Affidavit is completed at the time 
a person applies for a U.S. passport.
