New/Incoming Teacher Resources

It is essential that you complete and return this form regarding your arrival date, mailing address, dependents, pets, etc. As soon as you know this information, please forward it to us.

The following checklist will assist you in preparing for your move to Okinawa.

Please FAX a copy of your orders as soon as you receive them:

We will make hotel reservations for you; reservations are very hard to get and change at this time of year so if you need to make changes please go through the District Office. It is our genuine intent to be there to greet you when you disembark, and to transport you to your hotel. We recommend you arrive in Okinawa between 1 and 12 August. You will need time to get an ID card, find a car, start looking for an apartment, and get used to your new home before having to report for orientation. In the event that you should arrive and for some reason there is no one to meet you, please call the District Office at 098-961-1204
