Frequently Asked Questions
Updated: 03/15/17

1. If I buy a POV at my duty station outside the United States (OCONUS), does it have to meet US import standards for me to ship it back when I PCS to the United States?

2. May I ship a second POV between OCONUS PDSs at government expense and keep a POV in storage at government expense?

3. May a POV shipment be authorized for a newly recruited civilian employee/inducted member between OCONUS location - for example Puerto Rico to Hawaii?

4. May I ship a POV under Dependent Early Return (civilian employee) and Early Return of Dependent (ERD) (uniformed member) order?

5. Is the government obligated to return the POV to CONUS if initially shipped to the OCONUS PDS at government expense?

6. Is POV transportation permitted at government expense before a PCS/PDT order is issued to the employee or member or a TCS order issued to an employee?
