Nonimmigrant aliens also must maintain the documents while in possession of firearms or ammunition in the United States for verification purposes.
(5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An estimated 1,434 respondents will respond once to this information collection, and it will take each respondent approximately 4.08 minutes to provide their responses.

(7) An Explanation of the Change in Estimates: The decrease in the total number of respondents by 14, 347, the time taken for each response by 2 minutes, as well as a reduction in total burden 1,489 respectively, is due to the change in methodology used to calculate the current public burden, which differs from that which was used during the previous renewal in 2015.
