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 
establish U.S. nationality by providing a birth certificate that lists 
a place of birth within the United States or its outlying possessions 
(currently American Samoa and Swains Island). 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 in assessing the likelihood that the 
affiant has personal knowledge of the facts of the applicant's birth.

Methodology

    When needed by an applicant for a passport, a Birth Affidavit is 
either provided by the Department or downloaded from the Department's 
website and filled out by the affiant. It must be signed in the 
presence of a passport agent, acceptance agent, or notary public.
