I don’t have any advice but I think it would be best if you got it done here since there is probably less of a wait than on a base overseas.

Well, I would imagine that if you are supposed to be screened before you go, it would all end up working out if you do need work done.  That’s the purpose of them screening you, I would guess.  We won’t be PCSing anywhere overseas for a few years, but what your hubby said makes sense.  Maybe ask around to see what other wives have experienced?

Good luck!!  I would LOVE to go to Italy someday!  It’s on our possibilities list. 🙂

I’m a naval spouse as well, my husband just contacted his detailer and we were planning on going to Naples, but my graduation has stopped that.

It is my understanding before you go you have to have all the medical exams done and submited for review. As soon as he has orders in hand his command should immediately begin the process for overseas screening. This consists of medical exams, innoculation, and I believe you have to meet with a representative. His command will have all the details.

 If you’re moving with pets, you want to start looking into requirements now. The other reason we decided not to go is we couldn’t get all the vaccinations done in time.

 Also, if you need work done on your teeth- get it done now, especially if you’re picky about your dentist. The options overseas are limited.

Oh, and in addition to the no fee passport you’ll need to obtain a visa before your move. Start looking into that soon, they take several weeks to obtain. Within eight days of your arrival spouses must apply for the soujourners permit as well (sort of like a green card).

 And have fun!

I’m pretty sure a root canal is class 3 medical status which is pretty much not allowed prior to deployment or moving overseas. Either way your Doc will let you know if you’re cleared. They can’t mandate you to get treatment, but they can say they won’t pay to PCS you.
