Generally, you have to have a certain amount of time left on your orders or be willing to extend in order to have your family sponsored for a move. Your best bet is to talk to your chain of command to find out what your options would be. If they are command sponsored, they will need an EFMP exam and secure no-fee passports before moving to Korea. Good luck.

    Does anyone know if you can bring pets over to Korea? If so, what all is involved?

      Yes you can bring pets, but you have to pay out of pocket for the expenses.

    My husband reports the middle of September to Korea. We have submitted our command sponsorship form does anyone know generally how long it takes to get it? We put on the papers that we don’t mind living off post could this make the process faster because we won’t have to wait for housing? We have a son but he’s only two so we will not need to find him a place in the school system. Any help would be great! Thank you!

      Did you get an answer on your command sponsership? My husband has orders for Nov. and we’ve applied for sponsorship. I keep getting mixed information as to how likely it is we get approval. Thanks for any information.

        My husband and I applied for Command Sponsorship, he is already stationed in Yongsan. I am just curious as to how long it normally has taken others to get a decision for CS. Thank you for any comments.
