member,   fully   explaining   the   orders   during   the interview, and answering any questions the member may  have. Also, you must make sure the member has sufficient obligated service for the assignment. Additionally, you must  keep  in  mind  the  high-year  tenure  (HYT) restrictions. Furthermore, you must make sure the message of suitability or unsuitability is sent out and a copy of the message filed in the service record along with the Report of Suitability/Unsuitability for Overseas Assignment, NAVPERS 1300/16. Remember also to make  appropriate  service  record  entries. Whenever  you  process  overseas  transfers,  always use the mandatory checklist provided in chapter 4 of the ENLTRANSMAN   to   make   sure   no   items   are overlooked. NOTE:  Chapter  4  of  the  ENLTRANSMAN contains  additional  information  that  is  not discussed in this training manual. You should refer to this chapter if there are questions about determining what actions to take in case of personnel  approaching  fleet  reserve/retirement eligibility,   when   the   transfer   involves consecutive  overseas  tours,  when  determining overseas  tour  lengths,  and  so  forth. Also, you should refer to the  Suitability  Screening for Overseas Assignment, OPNAVINST 1300.14; and the Navy Passenger Transportation Manual (PTM), NAVMILPERSCOMINST   4650.2. COMMAND SPONSORSHIP OF DEPENDENTS AT OVERSEAS DUTY STATIONS From time to time, you will be required to submit dependent entry approval requests while processing overseas  transfers. The  purpose  of  requesting  a dependent   entry   approval   is   to   make   sure   that dependents  of  the  transferring  member  are— l l l Authorized  to  reside  at  the  overseas  location Authorized  to  be  command-sponsored Eligible for government transportation to and from  overseas  duty  stations Occasionally,  dependent  entry  approval  requests are disapproved for some reasons. Usually, the most common  reason  for  disapproval  is  a  shortage  of government  housing  at  the  overseas  duty  station location.  This  disapproval  prevents  the  member  from traveling concurrently with his/her dependents. In some instances it takes months to receive approval of the initial entry approval request. As a PN, you should be aware that not all overseas duty station locations require dependent entry approval. You should also be aware that not all overseas duty station locations authorize the travel of dependents because of certain restrictions there; for example, Diego Garcia A member cannot take dependents, because Diego Garcia is classified as a dependent restricted area. In fact, a  dependent  entry  approval  cannot  even  be  submitted Some of the terms you will find when dealing with command  sponsorship  of  dependents  are  defined  in  this section. Acquired  dependent. An acquired dependent is an In individual  who  becomes  a  dependent  through marriage, adoption, or other action during the course  of  a  Navy  servicemember’s  current overseas  tour  of  duty.  The  term  does  not include those individuals dependent on the servicemember or children born of a marriage that  existed  before  commencement  of  the current overseas tour. servicemember-married-to-servicemember situations, a servicemember separating from the service at an overseas station becomes an acquired dependent of the service member remaining on active duty on the day  of  separation. A  dependent,  returned  early  for  personal  reasons from an overseas area under paragraph U5240-D of the Joint Federal Travel Regulations (JFTR),  volume 1, NAVSO P-6034, is treated as an acquired dependent on return to the overseas area at personal expense. Appropriate  military  commander.  The  appropriate military   commander   is   normally   the commander  authorized  to  grant  dependent entry  approval  for  the  overseas  area.  Refer  to chapter  2,  appendix  D,  of  the  Passenger Transportation Manual (PTM), NAVMILPERSCOMINST    4650.2,    which identifies the appropriate military commanders. In areas where prior approval for dependent entry is not required, the authority directing the servicemember’s transfer is the appropriate military  commander.  The  appropriate  overseas commander,  as  defined  next,  is  the  appropriate military  commander  for  servicemembers  who request   dependent   entry   approval   after reporting  to  the  overseas  permanent  duty station  (PDS). 11-8
