Regarding travel history, applicants may be requested to provide details of their international or domestic (within their country of nationality) travel, if it appears to the consular officer that the applicant has been in an area while the area was under the operational control of a terrorist organization as defined in section 212(a)(3)(B)(vi) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1182(a)(3)(B)(vi). Applicants may be asked to recount or explain the details of their travel, and when possible, provide supporting documentation. While the Department previously required applicants completing the DS–5535 to provide their social media platforms and identifiers, also known as handles, used during the last five years, and phone numbers and email addresses used during the last five years, the form no longer includes those fields, which are now incorporated into the DS–156 Nonimmigrant Visa Application, DS– 160 Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application. This information collection continues implementation of the directive of the President, in the Memorandum for the Secretary of State, the Attorney General, the Secretary of Homeland Security of March 6, 2017, to implement additional protocols and procedures focused on ‘‘ensur[ing] the proper collection of all information necessary to rigorously evaluate all grounds of inadmissibility or deportability, or grounds for the denial of other immigration benefits.’’ Consular posts worldwide regularly engage with U.S. law enforcement and partners in the U.S. intelligence community to identify characteristics of applicant populations warranting increased scrutiny. The additional information collected facilitates consular officer efforts to apply more rigorous evaluation of these applicants for visa ineligibilities. In accordance with existing authorities, visas may not be denied on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, political views, gender, or sexual orientation. Failure to provide requested information will not necessarily result in visa denial, if the consular officer determines the applicant has provided a credible explanation why he or she cannot answer a question or provide requested supporting documentation, such that the consular officer is able to conclude that the applicant has provided adequate information to determine the applicant’s eligibility to VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:58 Oct 20, 2020 Jkt 253001 receive the visa. The information requested on this form will not be used to deny visas based on applicants’ race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, political views, gender, or sexual orientation. Methodology Department of State consular officers at visa-adjudicating posts worldwide will ask the additional questions to resolve an applicant’s identity or to vet for terrorism, national security-related, or other visa ineligibilities when the consular officer determines that the circumstances of a visa applicant, a review of a visa application, or responses in a visa interview indicate a need for greater scrutiny. The additional questions may be sent electronically to the applicant or be presented orally or in writing at the time of the interview. Edward J. Ramotowski, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Consular Affairs, Department of State.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA 
invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information 
collection. The collection involves the noise certification regulations 
for aircraft. This includes information collection requirements for the 
noise certification of subsonic aircraft--jet airplanes and subsonic 
transport category large airplanes, small propeller driven airplanes 
and rotorcraft. The information collected are the results of noise 
certification tests that demonstrate compliance with 14 CFR part 36. 
The original information collection was implemented to show compliance 
in accordance with the Aircraft Noise Abatement Act of 1968; that 
statute is now part of the overall codification of the FAA's regulatory 
authority over aircraft noise. The noise compliance report is used by 
the FAA in making a finding that the airplane is in noise compliance 
with the regulations. These compliance reports are required only once 
when an applicant wants to certificate an aircraft type. Without this 
data collection, the FAA would be unable to make the required noise 
certification compliance finding.
