Ordinarily Resident restrictions apply and vary depending on the host nation. Pay retention may be offered to successful applicants for positions at overseas locations.

Applicants who have family members with special medical needs should ensure that prior to accepting a position overseas their family members’ medical needs can be met. Access to care in a military treatment facility may not be available to civilian employees except on a space available basis.

For positions in a foreign country, that country’s laws or international agreements may have a direct impact on the ability of an employee’s same sex domestic partner or spouse to accompany the employee and receive certain benefits. If you believe you may be affected by these laws and agreements, you should familiarize yourself with relevant information before applying for or accepting this position.
