Military guru's.....If you are traveling with the military do you need a passport?
you get a military passport if you are traveling overseas.
yeah hes not bright. Well hes on his way home to deal with his bitchy wife
I have a legit passport because I travel to countries outside of the EU union. Switzerland, for example, I have been to many times. Granted, they have not actively checked every passenger on the trains I have been on, there are random checks.
If you are flying into a country, I highly suggest a full passport. Bite the bullet, pay the $90 or whatever it is, and wait a month. I do not fuck around with the thought of being stuck at some border because I wasnt smart enough to plan ahead.
BTW, I am stationed in Germany, and I travel often.
Yes, I have both a civilian and a military passport
Not in the Navy. They recommend us to get passports incase you have to come back to the states.
I dont think its a requirement, BUT, We send people outta here alot on emergency leave/medical evac/all kindsa crazy stuff.
They travel commercial almost always and when they go thru paris or dubai, they get caught up in customs long enough for them to miss their flight.
We try to get everyone to get one, but it doesnt always happen
umm no, your orders get you into the country
I have a regular one but Ive taken 3 trips to the sandbox and then pcsed to england without a passport
you must not be very important then. everyone we send on overseas sorties takes their military passport with them, E-1 to O-6. everyone.
in the air force your orders are your passport....so umm yea dude
Same here. Been to three different countries without one.
we must not be "important" lols
umm so define a military passport then dude been in 8 years, been overseas countless times and live over there now
never had no military passport broly
Then why do I have a red passport ?
That's not a "military" passport. That's an official passport. Not everyone in the military stationed overseas has one. In fact, the vast majority don't.
red ones are usually european ones I thought as ours are blue
so instead of bickering how about one of you fellow military dudes dig up some proof or something showing what a military passport is
and please inform me how I live in england without one? How my ex wife lived over here without one
how ive been to countless countries for the military without one then
There are three types of US Passports. Blue (tourist), red (official), and black (diplomatic).
There is no "military passport". More civilians have official passports than military (a great deal more). Official passports are used when you're on official government business. You wouldn't be able to use it to visit other countries as a tourist.
You, as a member of the military, do not require an official passport.
I am not bickering, I just found it odd that in our squadron to go TDY it is mandatory that we have an official passport, while you have shown that it is not needed.
you never said anything about TDY.
I understand that it is not actually a military passport. I was referring to the fact that I can use it only when on military status.
yea its called ORDERS which is what I said from the get go
thanks to sink for clearing it up.....
Ive been tdy 3 times and am about to go on my 4th trip to the sandbox never had to take anything other then a set of orders
plus other small tdys to other countries
