8. Privacy Act Statement. The authority to collect this information is contained in Title 8, United States Code. Furnishing the information on this form is voluntary; however, failure to provide all of the requested information may result in the delay of a final decision or denial of your request.

All applicants are subject to a check of criminal information databases in order to determine eligibility.

9. Penalties for False Statements in Applications. Severe penalties are provided by law for knowingly and willfully falsifying or concealing a material fact or using any false document in the submission of this application.

12. Reporting Burden. A person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. We try to create forms and instructions that are accurate, can be easily understood, and which impose the least possible burden on you to provide us with information. Often this is difficult because some immigration laws are very complex. Accordingly, the reporting burden for this collection of information is computed as follows: 1) learning about the form, and reading and understanding U.S. INS Publications 28 minutes; 2) completing the form, 8 minutes; 3) fingerprinting 30 minutes; and 4) assembling and mailing the application, 4 minutes, for an estimated average of 70 minutes per response. If you have comments regarding the accuracy of this estimate, or suggestions for making this form simpler, you can write to the Immigration and Naturalization Service, HQPDI, 425 I Street, N.W; Room 4034, Washington, DC 20536, OMB No. 1115-0174. Do not mail your completed application to this address.
