    The Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and 
Immigration Services (USCIS) 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 June 29, 2011, at 76 FR 38197, allowing for a 60-
day public comment period for a proposed revision to the information 
collection. However, USCIS is postponing deployment of the revisions to 
this information collection, and therefore requests to extend the 
current edition of this information collection without revision at this 
time. USCIS received one comment on the proposed revisions to this 
information collection. USCIS acknowledges receipt of the comment in 
the supporting statement (item 8) posted at http://www.regulations.gov 
and will further address the comment regarding the proposed revisions 
when USCIS revises the 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 
October 19, 2011. This process is conducted in accordance with 5 CFR 
    Written comments and/or suggestions regarding the item(s) contained 
in this notice, especially regarding the estimated public burden and 
associated response time, should be directed to the Department of 
Homeland Security (DHS), and to the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), USCIS Desk 
Officer. Comments may be submitted to: USCIS, Chief, Regulatory 
Products Division, Office of the Executive Secretariat, 20 
Massachusetts Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20529-2020. Comments may also 
be submitted to DHS via facsimile to 202-272-8352 or via e-mail at

comments by e-mail please make sure to add OMB Control Number 1615-0087

    Written comments and suggestions from the public and affected 
agencies 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 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
