That sucks!  I haven’t heard anything about that…I’m so sorry!  Hopefully it’s a rumor!

This may be a dumb question but what is the DOD?

Department of Defense?  Not sure…I was thinking the same thing!

I haven’t heard that at all.  I work for them and have a clearance.  Who have you heard that from?  Most likely you simply have to disclose your travel plans to them before you go, but that’s normal when working for them regardless of what country you travel to.

Right! I agree with @mrslouboutin (although I dont know about DOD but from the army standpoint), if you show them your orders or papers that shouldnt be a problem to take care of travel plans. I know with my Fiance in the army, he just has to show orders to get out of things or change plans. I would definitely check and not just go on rumors.

Just relax and dont fret, I’m sure it can be worked out!

Buy travel insurance now Ours only cost about $200 to ensure everything (flight and hotel) for both of us. I would call around and see if it is not too late to pick up an ensurance policy. Even if you pay a couple of hundred dollars and it turns out he can travel it will be worth it for peace of mind. You never know what else may come up between now and your trip.

Great to hear!

Seriously, don’t worry.  This WONT happen. It isn’t even possible for them to restrict travel.  The only time something would happen would be if he was from a country on our “bad” list with dual citizenship from that country and the US and traveled on his non US passport.  One, he would have had to surrender that passport upon working for the DoD he has a clearance.  And two, because he was clearly trying to hide his travel plans from the U.S. government by not traveling on his U.S. passport.

My friend  is active army and had an issue traveling to Belize about two months ago for a wedding.  He had to notify them of where he was going and why, go through some sort of travel briefing/counseling, etc…

you should be fine going to cozumel. my Fiance is in the air force & we are going to Cozumel, too. we logged on to the DoD travel website and it clearly states which states & cities DoD members are not allowed to travel in. Cozumel is in the state of Quintana Roo, so you should be fine. if you’re still unsure, check with the DoD Travel website or your Readiness & Travel office on our base.
