Member will have to ensure they have a contact phone number for the airlines to arrange an approximate time to meet at the gate for the exchange. 

 

Passport Requirements

Effective 1 October 2021, official travel must be conducted with a Special Issuance Passport (SIP). This requirement applies to command sponsored dependents and DoD civilian employees on government funded travel to Korea, Japan, and Germany. A No-Fee Regular Passport is a type of SIP and is what will apply to the majority of dependents and civilians arriving to and departing from the Republic of Korea on official travel.

As a temporary measure, a memorandum from a DoD Passport Agent stating that a SIP application was submitted prior to departure from the point of origin can be accepted along with a Regular Passport (Tourist). The memorandum must identify each applicant, date of submission, country of travel for PCS, TDY or TAD, and DoD VPAS ID. Official travel conducted with a Regular Passport (Tourist) with memorandum (in lieu of a SIP), will expire on 30 September 2021.

Pet Travel 

Effective 23 July 2021:  New Service Animal and Emotional Support Animal (ESA) Guidance (DoDI 4515.13, Air Transportation Eligbility): “ESAs are now considered ‘pets’”.  For more information, access the following:

AMC Pet Brochure 

OUSD Transportation of Service Animals on DoD Aircraft, 23 July 2021

DoDI 4515.13, Air Transportation Eligibility, defines ESAs as “pets”.  This change limits each family to two (2) pets, regardless of each pet’s ESA status.

Pets are dogs and cats only. Animals, such as horses, fish, birds, and rodents, ferrets, spiders, and other reptiles are excluded as pets under this authority because of their size, exotic nature, shipping restrictions, host nation restrictions, and special handling difficulties which pose unavoidable safety or public health concerns.

Service Animals will require a Statement of Assurance, and must be provided to the AMC Passenger Terminal no later than 48 hours prior to aircraft departure. You can access a template below:
