The NATO Status of Forces Agreement requires that dependent members of the U.S. Forces and DoD Civilians and their dependents be identified as such in their passports. This identification is commonly called a "SOFA Identification Certificate." A person could encounter problems crossing an international border (for example, a border to any European Union (EU) member country), while using a passport without a SOFA Identification Certificate. This is true especially when the person is a citizen or national of a country that requires a visa for entry into Germany (for example, Ethiopia, Philippines). A person who has a passport with a SOFA Identification Certificate usually may use the passport to travel to any NATO country. However, when a person having a passport with a SOFA Identification Certificate is required to have a passport without a SOFA Identification Certificate, the person must get another passport at their own expense.
Storage space in on-post quarters is limited. Housing is typically smaller than stateside housing. It is recommended that you check with your sponsor or local housing office to determine on and off post housing options, average square footage, and accessibility for large furniture items.
