What to Expect Upon Arrival
All Soldiers and most families arriving in Germany on Permanent Change of Station (PCS) moves will arrive at the Ramstein Gateway Reception Center via Air Mobility Command's military chartered airlift, The Patriot Express. Flights depart from BWI Airport, AMC Terminal and arrive at Ramstein Air Base, Germany. USAREUR Command Policy requires that all personnel and accompanying family members process through the Ramstein Gateway Reception Center (RGRC). RGRC staff will be available to guide you through the Gateway process.
If you are a Soldier and are scheduled to fly into Frankfurt International Airport (FRA) instead of Ramstein Air Base, contact your travel office immediately to change your flight to a Patriot Express flight. Not only is it a USAREUR policy that Soldiers do not fly into FRA during a PCS move, there is also no support nor oversight at FRA to track your arrival. If you are an exception to this policy and must fly into FRA, please ensure your sponsor is notified of your itinerary to arrange pickup. Upon arrival into Frankfurt you must report directly to the Ramstein Gateway Reception Center for European Theater in processing.
Upon arrival, Soldiers are picked up by their sponsors or unit representatives. Soldiers (that are authorized to live off base) and Soldiers with Family Members are then brought to lodging. Other single Soldiers are brought to the barracks or transient rooms.
