Some years ago, when I had to apply to renew my passport I was tempted to buy an illegal one in Napoli, it would certainly have cost me less troubles. As I see, also in USA they are trying to copy Italy.
May be some expert from Cosa Nostra could easily find a good job in US...
Ignoring massive public opposition, and despite having recently admitted that it is already using the "proposed" forms illegally without approval, the State Department is trying again to get approval for a pair of impossible-to-complete new passport application forms that would, in effect, allow the State Department to deny you a passport simply by choosing to send you either or both of the new
Early last year, the State Department proposed a new "Biographical Questionnaire" for passport applicants, which would have required anyone selected to receive the new long-form DS-5513 to answer bizarre and intrusive personal trivia questions about everything from whether you were circumcised (and if so, with what accompanying religious rituals) to the dates of all of your mother's pre- and post-natal medical appointments, your parents' addresses one year before you were born, every address at which you have ever resided, and your lifetime employment history including the names and phone numbers of each of your supervisors at every job you have ever held.
Most people would be unable to complete the proposed new form no
matter how much time and money they invested in research.
someone to complete Form DS-5513 would amount to de facto denial of
their application for a passport -- which, as we told the State
Department, appeared to be the point of the form.
The State Department's notice of the proposal in the Federal Register
didn't include the form itself. After we published the proposed Form
DS-5513, the story went viral and more than 3,000 public comments
objecting to the proposal were filed with the State Department in the
final 24 hours of the comment period.
After that fiasco, the State Department went dark for several months,
and claimed that they would "revise" the form. But they didn't give
up, and apparently they didn't listen to (or didn't care) what they
had been told by members of the public in our comments.
The State Department is now seeking approval for a (slightly) revised
Form DS-5513 as well as a new Form DS-5520, also for passport
applicants, containing many of the same questions.
