Command sponsorship may be granted to families who complete the requirements of the Family Member Relocation Clearance process and who are recommended for travel OCONUS. Having command-sponsored status is extremely important to families leaving CONUS.
Sponsors are encouraged to seek legal and command advice before choosing to relocate family members OCONUS without command sponsorship. AFI 36-2110, Assignments, Attachment 20, provides additional important information about command sponsorship of family members during OCONUS relocation. Additionally, when family members are recommended not to travel with the sponsor to the projected assignment location, the sponsor has the option of requesting an Exceptional Family Member Program reassignment or deferment through the virtual Military Personnel Flight.
AFI 36-2110, Attachment 25, Exceptional Family Member Program, provides more specific information about the EFMP reassignment program. Moreover, the vMPF provides more detailed instructions about the EFMP reassignment application process.
If sponsors have questions regarding the process, please contact the HQ AFPC Total Force Service Center at DSN 665-5000 or 210-565-0102; toll-free at 800-565-0102.
