When you arrive at your new installation, you’ll need to follow installation-specific procedures. Each installation and service handles in-processing differently. Here, you can find installation-specific guidelines and a list of documents to bring with you when checking- in. Reach out to the contacts provided if you have specific questions.
If you are unsure of where you should check in for your new command in the Norfolk Naval Station area, call the Transient Personnel Unit Quarterdeck for directions and guidance as to proper check-in procedures. They can be reached 24 hours a day by calling 757-444-1640 or DSN 312-564-1640.
The Transient Personnel Unit, or TPU, is a component of the Naval Station Norfolk and is headed by a commanding officer. The unit consists of an administrative services department, administrative discharges division, master-at-arms force, maintenance department, discipline department, transient personnel department, enlisted performance, and legal department.
The mission of TPU is to expeditiously process sailors through administrative, transfer, discipline, and/or medical transition pipelines for commands who, because of deployment or overseas location, can not provide appropriate facilitation themselves.
If you check aboard during normal working hours, please report to Naval Station Administration located in building J-50. If you check aboard after normal working hours, please report to the Duty Office located in building J-50.
Keep copies of all important papers. These should include: orders, passports, birth certificates, marriage certificates, ID cards, insurance cards, etc. Keep your sponsor, quarterdeck, and command ombudsman phone numbers with you at all times.
Make lodging reservations in advance and make kennel arrangements for pets if you will be staying in the military lodge system or hotel/motels that are not pet friendly. Keep important travel numbers with you such as Red Cross, Navy Marine Corps Relief Society, Fleet and Family Support Centers and remember to have a safe and fun trip.
Service members are strongly encouraged to ask their detaching or gaining command about Temporary Lodging Expense or Temporary Lodging Allowance which can off-set the cost of temporary housing at the losing or gaining duty station. This financial entitlement is obtained at the command and should be applied for before expecting reimbursement for lodging costs.
If you get married before you PCS, you must inform your command and follow the procedures exactly as you are given them. The military will not pay for travel and housing of your spouse if you do not follow proper procedures.
