VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:38 Sep 08, 2021 Jkt 253001 Abstract of Proposed Collection 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). Department regulations provide that individuals whose valid or potentially valid U.S. passports were lost or stolen must report the lost or stolen passport to the Department of State before receiving a new passport so that the lost or stolen passport can be invalidated (22 CFR parts 50 and 51). The Enhanced Border Security and Visa Entry Reform Act of 2002 (8 U.S.C. 1737) requires the Department of State to collect accurate information on lost or stolen U.S. passports and to enter that information into a data system. Form DS–64 collects information identifying the person who held the valid lost or stolen passport and describing the circumstances under which the passport was lost or stolen. As required by the cited authorities, we use the information collected to accurately identify the passport that must be invalidated and to make a record of the circumstances surrounding the lost or stolen passport. Methodology Passport bearers may submit their form electronically on www.travel.state.gov or call the National Passport Information Center at 1–877– 487–2778. A person may also download the form from the internet or obtain one at any passport agency or acceptance facility. Amanda E. Jones, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Consular Affairs, Passport Services, U.S. Department of State.

ACTION: Notice of final disposition. AGENCY: FMCSA announces its decision to exempt eight individuals from the vision requirement in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) to operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in interstate commerce. They are unable to meet the vision requirement in one eye for various reasons. The exemptions enable these individuals to operate CMVs in interstate commerce without meeting the vision requirement in one eye.

This information collection is the Department’s main immigrant visa application form and is used by most immigrant visa applicants. The Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration (DS–230) is primarily used to collect biographical information from individuals seeking VerDate Sep<11>2014 for Cuban Family Reunification Parole. While this discretionary parole authority is exercised by the Department of Homeland Security, an applicant must demonstrate that he or she is eligible for an immigrant visa. In rare circumstances, an applicant for an immigrant visa may complete the DS–230 in lieu of the online version of the application, the DS–260.

The public comment period ended on August 18, 2021, and three comments were received. FMCSA has evaluated the eligibility of these applicants and determined that granting the exemptions to these individuals would achieve a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the E:\FR\FM\09SEN1.SGM 09SEN1

Abstract of Proposed Collection

    The Electronic Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien 
Registration (DS-260) is used to collect biographical information from 
individuals seeking an immigrant visa. This information collection is 
the Department's main immigrant visa application form and is used by 
most immigrant visa applicants.
    The Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration (DS-230) 
is primarily used to collect biographical information from individuals 
seeking for Cuban Family Reunification Parole. While this discretionary 
parole authority is exercised by the Department of Homeland Security, 
an applicant must demonstrate that he or she is eligible for an 
immigrant visa.
    In rare circumstances, an applicant for an immigrant visa may 
complete the DS-230 in lieu of the online version of the application, 
the DS-260. Consular officers use the information collected by both 
versions of the form to elicit information necessary to determine an 
applicant's immigrant visa eligibility.

Methodology

    The DS-260 is submitted electronically over an encrypted connection 
to the Department via the internet. The applicant will be instructed to 
print a confirmation page containing a bar coded record locator, which 
will be scanned at the time of processing.
    Applicants using the DS-230 will complete the form and submit it 
directly to a consular post. A consular officer will review the 
submitted application to determine whether the applicant is eligible 
for an immigrant visa. To submit the DS-230 in lieu of a DS-260 the 
applicant must first receive permission from the consular officer.
