Official Passports and Visas
All dependents must be command sponsored and have a no-fee passport to accompany military personnel on an official tour to the U.K. Your local MPS will be able to help with the process for all appropriate documents needed to bring dependents into the U.K. To initiate this process, contact your local Passport Agent within 15 days of receiving the initial briefing in virtual MPF. On average, it can take approximately 120 days (6 - 8 weeks) to process no-fee passports. IAW DoD 1000.21-R, Chapter 4, Item D.3.b., if passports are not received by the departure date, personnel should not, under normal circumstances, be allowed to out-process and/or depart without the required passport. If you have not received dependent's passport within 30 calendar days of your report no later than date (RNLTD), then you should request a RNLTD delay. DoD civilian employees and their dependents MUST have no-fee passports and a 5-year visa (if staying in the country for more than six months) prior to arrival. DoD-sponsored contractors and their dependents must have passports and visas reflecting their contract terms. Please use the following websites for more passport and visa information:
These actions are necessary to prevent unforeseen hardships to the military and civilian members and their families. Therefore, as the last reiteration, it is essential, members do not out-process without having the appropriate passports/visas for themselves (if applicable) and/or dependents.
Arriving in the UK without the appropriate documents, could result in your family being denied entry or deported. There are also consequences for unaccompanied dependents (those who are in-country where the sponsor is NOT assigned). Please see the ‘Check-in procedures’ topic for more details and contact MPF at DSN 314-238-2222 or commercial 011-44-1638-542222.
The contact number for the base operator is 011-44-1638-541110 and DSN 314-238-1110.
