What to bring:
Plan your packing in five components
1. Hand carry – Pack passports, copies of orders, powers of attorney, medical, school and immunization records, pet documents, personal toilet articles, any essential medicine, and all identification cards. Bring your car seats, even if they are merely checked. To ride on post in personal vehicles or taxis, your children must be properly belted in.
2. Baggage for the plane – What you include will be limited by the baggage weight limits, but the following are some suggested “essentials:” Current seasonal clothes and several pairs of comfortable shoes (you will do a lot of walking compared to what a typical American usually does). Remember to check your order and ensure that you get the overseas baggage weight allowance with your PCS orders of two bags per person each bag weighing no more than 70 pounds. Seasonal “must haves” include: rain gear (umbrella and rain boots) during the summer months (monsoon season is no joke) and warm layers during the winter. Bring car seats (check booster seats) and if you use an umbrella stroller, check one as baggage.
3. Unaccompanied baggage (hold baggage) – Plan your hold baggage carefully. While Army Community Service Lending Closet can help you with some items until your shipment arrives.
Consider sending the following items in “hold baggage:"
4. Household goods vs. storage – The government allows only a certain percentage of your total weight allowance to be shipped to Korea. The remainder of your items will need to be placed in storage at government expense. Weight allowances vary depending on branch of service and rank, so check with your personnel office, travel management office or personal property office for the correct information. Army families are typically allowed to ship only 50% of the Joint Federal Travel Regulation-allowed weight allowance. Your household goods shipment may take several months, so you may want to consider sending this shipment early. Regardless of your weight allowance, think carefully when deciding what to ship. Bring the things that you cannot live without, but keep in mind that your life may become filled with “treasures” from Asia. Quarters are smaller than most stateside homes and some have minimal storage space; you can quickly find yourself overcrowded. Understand housing varies widely.
Consider bringing the following items:
Consider not bringing the following items:
Planning the Household
Furniture – Accompanied military members are either entitled to full furniture transport (depending on branch of the military and/or rank) or 50% (half JFTR) furniture transport. If you are an accompanied military family living on post (whether you brought all or partial household goods), you are authorized full furniture support from the housing office. If you are an accompanied military family living off post only entitled to bring partial household goods support, you are authorized furniture support from the housing office for your entire tour. If you are entitled to bring full household good support and live off post, you are only authorized furniture support for six months. And finally, if you are a civilian family, you are only authorized six months furniture support because you automatically are entitled to full household goods shipment. Why is this important? Read in the “What to bring” section to determine if you should bring certain items or put them in storage.
