USAG BENELUX primary mission is to operate U.S. garrisons and support joint communities in order to execute national defense strategy, support theater lines of communication throughout the entire footprint SHAPE is led by the Supreme Allied Commander in Europe (SACEUR), a four-star general Officer. The international staff at SHAPE and the subordinate military headquarters plan and coordinate the deployment of the NATO's military forces in (ACE). USAG BENELUX provides Army base operations services for joint military and inter-agency communities to support U.S. interests in NATO.
For those lucky enough to be stationed here in the BENELUX, you will immediately recognize that this tour is different from any other in the Army. Why? Because of the operational support provided to the NATO communities. All of our communities are filled with diverse, multinational members with about 40 percent of the entire work force coming from our host nations. In fact, you will receive two identification cards: one for the Department of Defense and one for NATO. You are also required to register with your host nation and are provided with a permit of residence. This permit of residence must be carried by the holder at all times. Additionally, many of the facilities and services available to you are geographically separated with some facilities located on the U.S. Army installation and some on the NATO/Joint Services installation.
Service members and civilians assigned to Belgium who has non U.S. or non EU spouses must check with their servicing personnel office and the State Department regarding visa or other entry requirements. Belgium requires a document known as a Type C Visa for citizens of certain countries. Failure to comply with visa requirements can prevent a family member from entering or residing in Belgium. It can also result in denial of important overseas privileges such as tax-exemption, access to tax-free shopping facilities, and employment rights.
