Arranging Household Goods Shipments


DoD travel restrictions have been extended to 30 Jun 20. This Stop Move policy directly impacts the shipment of household goods.

Customers who do not meet one of the identified exemptions (see below) and are requesting household goods move dates that fall within the Stop Move period (now thru 30 Jun 20), require an Exception to Policy (ETP) endorsement. The ETP must be on Command Letterhead and endorsed by a Commander, or Officer in Charge, in the rank of O-5 or above.  The ETP must document the member's justification and potential risks to execute PCS move during the Stop Move period.

The following personnel are exempted from the ETP requirement under current policy:

1.  Personnel in the accessions pipeline (basic training, entry level training, OCS, TBS, schools, universities) with follow-on travel to first permanent duty station.

2.  Marines in direct support of the Accession Supply Chain (Recruiters, Drill Instructors, Marines assigned to RTRs, staff of SOI, OCS, TBS and Formal Learning Centers).

3.  Marines and family members moving under a U.S. Chief of Mission.

4.  Personnel with move requests 1 Jul or later.

More info can be found in MARADMIN 254/20, USTRANSCOM Personal Property Advisory #20-0059C, and on the Move.Mil website.  Also, recommend you continue monitoring the MARADMIN Web-site for updated guidance.

As soon as you receive Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders, you can start your move application by visiting the move.mil website and submitting your application in the Defense Personal Property System (DPS).


If you are going overseas, you should begin to plan what items you will take in your unaccompanied baggage (UB), your household goods shipment (HHG), and items you may keep in your non-temporary storage.

Passenger Travel

Provides commercial air, surface, and AMC transportation for personnel traveling on official orders.

Hours of Operation:

Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.


Services Provided:



Commercial buses can be requested through DMO using the Commercial Bus Request form provided on this site.  A minimum of 14 days advance notice is required to ensure timely processing.  Submit completed request form to the Passenger Travel email provided on this site.




TAD travelers are required to use the Defense Travel System (DTS) to initiate their travel.  Questions regarding DTS travel can be answered by the unit Authorizing Official (AO), or the installation DTS Helpdesk.  DTS orders must be stamped “APPROVED” and have appropriation data before tickets can be issued electronically.  It is the traveler’s responsibility to ensure that tickets have been generated prior to reporting to their perspective airport.  Tickets will normally be issued 3 days in advance of your travel date.


PCS travelers and other travel that cannot be booked in DTS must contact the Travel Management Center (TMC) to arrange reservations for commercial air flights.  A copy of endorsed travel orders must be provided to the DMO Passenger Travel Section so tickets may be generated.




Air Mobility Command (AMC) flights will be utilized to the fullest extent possible.  Requests for AMC travel must be submitted in the form of a portcall request via IPAC.  Travelers must provide a 14 day window of availability and include information for all travelers (i.e. rank, full names, full SSN’s, valid POC) and traveling with animal/s if applicable (i.e. rank, full names, full SSN’s, valid POC, animal weight and kennel dimensions, etc.).


Flights bound for Japan and Korea depart out of Seattle, Washington only.  A commercial flight to Seattle must be booked by the customer, via the TMC, once the AMC flight is confirmed.




Planning for shipment of your pet/s ensure you research airline requirements and quarantine restriction laws to your new location.  The DMO will attempt to accommodate pets as best as possible, but travelers must understand there is no entitlement for pets.




If you intend to take your pet/s, submit your request as early as possible to IPAC.  Portcalls cannot be changed to accommodate pet requests.  Pet transportation is at the traveler’s risk.  The member is responsible for obtaining all required documentation, immunization, and border clearance requirements.  Shipment of pets during the summer months is very limited do to extreme weather conditions and may be prohibited on flights.
