With certain military moves, you may find yourself looking for housing that’s a little less permanent before making long-term arrangements. There are several temporary housing options that may be right for you. Explore the information about temporary housing facilities including allowances, lodging rates and eligibility.
Kalkar does not have temporary lodging facilities. You should plan on staying in a hotel or furnished apartment upon your arrival. You will be paid Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA) when you are overseas and not assigned government quarters for up to 60 days. Ask your sponsor what options will be available for your arrival time.
Due to limited options in the Kalkar area, it is essential that you tell your sponsor about special needs prior to your arrival. For example, if you will not have transportation, the best option will probably be an apartment or hotel room within Kalkar. There are an assortment of shops and restaurants within Kalkar which are within walking distance of any apartment or hotel. The military Kaserne (German base) and NSU are also accessible by bicycle from these locations (only 3 km from the main square in Kalkar).
