    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the Bureau of 
Immigration and Customs Services (ICE) has submitted the following 
information collection request for review and clearance in accordance 
with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The proposed information 
collection is published to obtain comments from the public and affected 
agencies. Comments are encouraged and will be accepted for sixty days 
until August 25, 2003.
    Written comments and suggestions from the public and affected 
agencies concerning the proposed collection of information should 
address one or more of the following four points:
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agencies estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarify of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submission of responses.
    Overview of this information collection:
    (1) Type of Information Collection: Extension of a currently 
approved collection.
    (2) Title of the Form/Collection: Visa Waiver Program Carrier 
    (3) Agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the

of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: 50 responses at
