There is no time to waste in getting ready for your move to Naples. A move overseas requires months of preparation, and the sooner you have orders in hand, the sooner you can get started.
This section will provide you with some of the details and answers to some of the most commonly asked questions on moving overseas. It cannot be overemphasized that you should immediately contact your sponsor since he or she is your first link between you and your new command. Constant communication between you and your sponsor will make your move easier for your family and eliminate needless worries and frustrations. Your sponsor should send you a Welcome Aboard package and provide you with useful information to ensure your transition to life overseas is as smooth as possible.
Provide your sponsor with accurate information on yourself and your family. In the summer months, it is not uncommon for the long waiting lists for temporary accommodations, so send the following to your sponsor as soon as possible:
· Leave address and phone number (transient email address also recommended);
· Dates/times/flight numbers for your arrival;
· Family size, ages of children and any special considerations;
· Child care needs;
· Pets you may be bringing.
If you haven’t heard back from your sponsor in a few days, contact your new command immediately.
