3/19/2011 - YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan -- In an attempt to minimize waiting times for those individuals who are voluntarily departing, we are providing an opportunity for them to come to the Taiyo and pre-process through the travel line. The entire family does not have to come, as a parent or guardian can take care of the processing for their entire family. Do not bring luggage or pets to pre-processing.

Pre-processing will be conducted Sunday, 20 Mar, 0600-2200, and Monday, 21 Mar, 0600-2200. In order to ensure you are processed quickly, bring the following mandatory documents to the Taiyo.

1) Valid U.S. passport or Visas for each member

2) Military ID/CAC card for members age 10 and older

3) Copy of PCS orders (to Japan)

4) Birth certificate for infants who do not have a passport

5) USFJ Form 178 already filled out and signed by sponsor, First Sergeant, or
    -Only one USFJ Form 178 required per family

6) If you are shipping a pet:
      -Pet health certificate from veterinarian
      -Rabies certificate from veterinarian

After pre-processing, we will provide wristbands for each member of your family that is departing--the wristband is validation that a departing family member has been pre-processed. When you are called to come back to the Taiyo for final processing, all departing family members must have their wristbands. Pre-processing will cut the final processing time significantly; family members will only be required to process luggage, pets, and go through Customs and airport security screening.

If you have any questions, please call your unit VADR for updated information.
