Overseas Tour Extension/Date Eligible for Return From Overseas, Projected Rotation Date (DEROS/PRD)

To extend the entitlement of eligibility with NDSP, documentation must be provided that specifically addresses continuing authority to remain in the overseas area. Acceptable documents include:

  • Valid extension order
  • Transportation agreement
  • Single Unit Retrieval Format (SURF)-Air Force

NOTE: In light of COVID-19, a memo may not be available that documents that the PCS has been delayed. Advise the NDSP at if this pertains to your situation.
