Okay, so I am VERY new to being a military wife. My husband came home from AIT a few months ago, & is now stationed in Schweinfurt Germany. He moved there in July. We got married when he was home after AIT. We are really on top of paperwork & getting me out there. I have contacted someone for getting my overseas screening paperwork filled out. I got it last week & sent it & should be there today. I am already enrolled in DEERS & have my military ID. (we took care of it in June) Also I was told I needed to have a passport, so instead of waiting for the Army to take care of it I went to the Post Office & had it expedited to me. So now I have that already. Once the lady receives my EFMP paperwork/ overseas screening packet etc. What happens next? I was told it is sent to somebody in Europe. Then my husband recieves command sponsor orders, & he sets up a date for the movers to come & my plane ticket? Am I missing any check points I have to do? I’d appreciate the help since I’d like to get things rollin asap!
Did you get a no-fee passport or a tourist passport? You will need the no-fee to travel on military orders and you will need the tourist passport for any leisure travel once you arrive. Other than that, it sounds like you are on top of things. Hopefully, the sponsorship will go through quickly and you can join your husband. Good luck!
