No-fee Passport Checklist

Dependents executing government funded travel orders

Dependents executing government funded travel orders will require no-fee passports when returning to Okinawa via the Patriot Express/AMC or a memorandum from any of the passport offices in Okinawa stating that the Special Issuance Passport (SIP) has been requested. The passport office requesting the passport via VPAS.Army.mil will be able to provide the required passport tracking number to be included in the memorandum.  For additional assistance please contact the Camp Foster Passport Office at DSN: 645-9842/9847/9848.

Sample Memorandum


NOTICE:

SPECIAL ISSUANCE PASSPORT (NO-FEE PASSPORT) REQUIREMENT FOR ENTRY INTO JAPAN UNDER OFFICIAL ORDERS

ATTENTION:  Per a recent update to the Foreign Clearance Guide, DoD Civilians and Eligible Family Members returning to Japan on official travel must have either a Special Issuance Passport (SIP) or, as a temporary measure, a memorandum from a DoD Passport Agent stating the SIP application was submitted prior to departure from the point of origin. The memorandum must identify each applicant, date of submission, country of travel for PCS/TDY/TAD and DoD VPAS ID. For a limited time, boarding a flight while on official travel status with a Regular (blue tourist) Passport is permissible ONLY with such a memo, which is to be presented to boarding officials, upon request.

 

NOTE: This temporary exception, i.e., allowing official travel on a Regular Passport with memorandum (in lieu of a SIP), will expire on 31 March 2022. Effective 1 October 2021, official travel must be conducted with a SIP. See I.A., below for additional requirements. (additional information is provided in the Foreign Clearance Guide).


Therefore, DoD Civilians and Eligible Family Members who plan to conduct international travel under orders, who require re-entry into Japan and do not possess a no-fee passport, must apply for a passport and request a memo from the DoD Passport Agency processing their passport application.  For additional information please visit or contact one of the following locations:
