    The Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and 
Immigration Services (CIS), has submitted the following information 
collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for 
review and clearance in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995. The information collection was previously published in the 
Federal Register on September 25, 2003 at 68 FR 55404, allowing for a 
60-day public comment period. No comment was received by the CIS on 
this proposed information collection.
    The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 30 days for 
public comments. Comments are encouraged and will be accepted until 
January 20, 2004. This process is conducted in accordance with 5 CFR 
1320.10.
    Written comments and/or suggestions regarding the items contained 
in this notice, especially regarding the estimated public burden and 
associated response time, should be directed to the Office of 
Management and Budget, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, 
Attention: Department of Homeland Security Desk Officer, 725-17th

    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 agency's 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 clarity 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 submission of 
responses.
    Overview of this information collection:

well as a brief abstract: Primary: Individuals or Households. This form

to lawful permanent resident.

of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: 195,000
