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.
The United States Army Garrison Bavaria Garmisch community does not have an In- and Out-Processing Center or Civilian Personnel Advisory Center. Your gaining organization will arrange for your in-processing. Any questions you have prior to arrival should be addressed to your sponsor. If you need further assistance, contact the Army Community Service Specialist at Civ: 08821-750-3572 or DSN: 440-3572.
Your sponsor will provide all the information needed for your arrival. With a copy of your orders, they will contact the housing office to make the initial arrangements. Quarters are generally available for all active-duty personnel; however, depending on rank and bedroom requirement and ongoing renovation projects, there could be a wait. Should that be the case, deferred travel may be necessary as temporary quarters are not available. Civilian employees will also be assigned a sponsor, and the same applies. If you have not made contact with your sponsor, contact your gaining organization or Army Community Service. An initial appointment will be made for you with the Housing Referral Office which will assist with your house or apartment hunting. Your sponsor will also assist with finding temporary accommodations on the local economy. Garmisch and Oberammergau are both vacation areas and abound with guest accommodations from hotels to vacation apartments. Your sponsor will also arrange a post office box for you to allow for prompt change of address notification and advance mailing of needed items should you so desire.
The sponsorship program is alive and well in both the Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Oberammergau communities. It is rare that anyone arrives without prior notice. If you are on assignment or have accepted a position and have not been contacted by your sponsor, please contact your gaining organization or the Army Community Service. Youth services has a child and youth sponsorship program as well.
If you get married before you complete your PCS, you must inform your command to request command sponsorship for your new spouse and follow the procedures exactly as you are given them. Your new spouse must be command sponsored prior to being eligible for any military funded travel, housing or other allowances. Depending on the circumstances, it may be necessary for your new spouse to join you at your new assignment after command sponsorship is received.
Without command sponsorship, employment is also difficult to obtain.
