NEW Overseas Screening Process!

NAVADMIN 203/14 released on Sept 2nd by CNO Washington has new processes for overseas screenings. These processes will affect everyone needing an overseas screening here is what you need to know.
“The current process of starting overseas screening after receipt of permanent change of station (PCS) orders, delays Sailors and families from completing overseas screening in a timely manner. These delays have negatively impacted operational manning.  When a service member and/or dependent(s) are found unsuitable for overseas assignment within a 90-day window of the expected date of arrival (EDA), the billet becomes gapped until a suitable replacement can be found.”--- NAVADMIN 203/14

Screening BEFORE you receive your orders!
The new process will require the service member to complete the overseas screening process before the release of the service member’s PCS orders.  In addition the transferring command will track and report completion/suitability of a member within a specified time frame.
Once an You are accepted by the Career Management System/Interactive Detailing (CMS-ID) for an overseas/remote CONUS assignment, your chain of command will be notified by NPC via a letter of intent (LOI) to commence an overseas screening. 

Time Frames for Completion
If your screening or your dependent(s) screening process is not reported by your command with a suitable determination within the time allotted, the proposed orders will be canceled, making you subject to a needs of the Navy assignment without further negotiation.  This makes it vital to get done in the allotted time here is the timeframe you will have;
·         Sailors without dependents will be given 30 days from the time the letter of intent is received.
·         Sailors with dependents will be given 30 days from the time the letter of intent is received for themselves and 60 days for their dependents.

Time Frame Waivers
Sometimes things are out of your control so you may need a waiver for extending the 30-60 day requirements.  All waiver requests go to NPC for revirew and must have extensive justifications for the extension. Another thing to keem in mind is that waiver requests must be in to NPC before the 30-60 day time is up.

 Review the Whole instruction
                To see all the steps for an overseas screening read NAVADMIN 203/14 BEFORE you are up for orders it will save a lot of heartache.  

If you have any questions or comments on this subject or you would like me to cover somting please leave it in the comments below.


  1. As far as I know since you are not going then there is no need for you to get screened. Depending on rank your husband needs to get his Chief to contact the detailer or he needs to talk with him to verify that the detailer knows that he is going unaccompanied. Good luck to your hubby and to you Overseas separation is hard.

  2. Hello, i am a dependent too. We got selected for orders and on the process of my husbands overseas screening he got denied my medical in japan. We dont know what to do, is there any way we can get a waiver for it? Any help, info that you can give will be greatly apprecieted.. thanks in advance.
