Must Know Items

You will arrive at one of two places in Korea:

Kimpo International Airport, Seoul: When arriving at Kimpo during duty hours you will be met by the military liaison personnel and directed to process through Korean Customs. There is military bus transportation to the in- processing center at Yongsan Garrison. If you arrive at a time when there are no military liaison personnel on duty go to the USO counter where there is a military phone (DSN) and arrival information posted. You will be able to call your unit or POC from this phone. This counter is directly in front of the doors that exit you from the baggage pick-up and customs area of the terminal. At Yongsan it will take approximately 3 days to in-process and get your assignment orders. If your unit doesn't pick you up, your transportation to Camp Humphreys will be by bus and will take about two hours. Contact your unit at Camp Humphreys and tell them what time you will depart Yongsan so they can meet you when you arrive at the bus terminal. The taxi stand is directly across the street from the bus terminal.

Osan Air Force Base, Songtan: If you arrive through Osan AFB you will be processed through customs and immigration, put on a bus and, after a 2 hour bus trip, delivered to Yongsan. In all likelihood you will not be able to leave the AMC terminal, even to go to the BX. You should contact your unit as soon as you arrive at Osan AFB.

Hot Tip!!

Bring your VCR in your hold baggage. There is a good video store here and VCRs are great.

If your family is comming: There is no on-post housing There are no child care/child development services There are no DODDS schools on base. It is recommended that you wait about a month before bringing your family members to Korea. This will give you time to in-process Korea, Camp Humphreys, and your unit. This is a non-command sponsored post. Housing off post is limited and their is no on post housing available. Bringing family members too early could mean spending many nights in a costly hotel! If you plan on bringing pets, you should know that currently there is no mandatory quarantine period IF your dog or cat has a current rabies shots. The vaccination certificate must be at least 30 days old and not expired. See the RELOCATION SERVICES: PET section later in this book for more details.

If you are non-command sponsored, sign your children up to be put on the waiting list for school as soon as they arrive in country. Most of the jobs here are filled by Korean Nationals and family member employment is very limited. A Passport is required for each family member. Visas are required for family members who plan to stay longer than 15 days. Visa applications can be obtained from any Korean Consulate in the US. Make sure you get an A-3 (SOFA) status visa. This can be done by giving the consulate a copy of the sponsors assignment orders. Some consulates desire to give you a C-3 (tourest) visa [and charge you $20.00--SOFA visas are free]. After arrival, family members will need a Status Of Forces Agreement (SOFA) validation stamp in their passport. Stop by Army Community Service and we will help you get your stamp.
