I am in the us navy and married to a civilian . I got married after I got my hard copy orders therefore hey are unaccompanied to Japan . I am allowed to route a request to live off base . I am recieving BAH for my husband to live in The US but he’s living

Answers:

Yes....now for the issues. 1. You may be given quarters on base in the barracks. He can not live there with you. If you choose not to live there and live off base with your husband you will not get BAH at the in-country rate. You will at most get BAH for where you lived back home. Japan is an expensive place and you may find you can not afford it. 2. Since he is not command sponsored he will have to get a visa. They may not give him one, in which case he can not come. 3. Since he is not command sponsored he will not be eligible to use military medical care, etc. If he gets sick he will have to go to a civilian hospital. 4. Since he is not command sponsored if there is a need to quickly evacuate dependents he will not be included, he will have to get out of there on his own. 5. He will not be partially protected under the Status of Forces Agreement so will be 100% subject to Japanese law. The JAG is not going to do a thing to help. 6. He will not be able to work on base since he is not suppose to be there and it is highly unlikely he will be able to get a job in Japan. .......... All in all it is a really bad idea. Better to get it changed to an accompanied tour.

That's a fine plan and all up to the part where.......

A.) .....you think your husband can just pack up and move to Japan and stay there as long as he wants. (Uhhh, NO. )

and B. ) .....the part where to you plan to defraud the US Military. ---which ....if caught, will have UCMJ consequences for you............and possibly get you kicked out with loss of all benefits.

But Beyond all that...........oh yeahhhhhhhhhhhh, excellent plan.

oh, except for C. )..........do you have any idea what apartments cost in Japan on your military salary?
Yeahhhhhhh, that ain't happening either.............

but still, a nice fantasy.

Now, if you care to join reality.........Japan is wonderful, even if they extend you for a year to bring him over legally........take it.......because Japan is great! You'll love it.

You might even get base housing......and you run ZERO risk of running afoul of the law.

Now which plan sounds better????? Staying in Japan an extra year, or staying in Leavenworth?

He can’t stay there more than 30 days if he is not command sponsored. He is subject to Japanese tourism regulation. You lose BAH if he moves and failure to let them know is fraud, way more trouble than you want to get into.

NO WAY!

You will not be able to bring your spouse over at your expense and have him stay. They will only let him be there 90 days max, have a return ticket and then he must leave the country. He needs sponsorship to get a visa for longer than that and to get that he either needs a job in Japan or command sponsorship. To get the later he needs to get a medical and dental screening. That takes months to go through and yes means you extend 1 year as accompanied orders are 3 years.

Then there is not be able to use the BAH to get an apartment because they would require you to be authorized to live off base and collect OHA which is higher most of the time than BAH. You must keep your barracks room as well. He would not be allowed to use base facilities unless he is sponsored. He can be kicked out of the country and you get in serious trouble.

Why do you not just submit the request to have the orders changed to accompanied and get command sponsorship? The cost of him getting there is still out of pocket but it’s legal

I see a problem with the Japanese government giving your husband permission to stay in country for an extended period of time without him being on your orders.

You will have a problem getting COLA, but the military cannot tell your husband where to live.
