Overseas Screening 



Due to BUPERS ONLINE (BOL) system unavailability, all actions for processing and tracking Overseas, Remote and ECRC Screening is being conducted manually by PERS-451.  Due to the current backlog, PERS-451 will no longer be processing "pending/interim" Suitability determinations.  We will continue to process "suitable" and "unsuitable" determinations.  This action will result in commands receiving Screening delinquency messages until a final suitability determination is made.


Hyper-links for Overseas Screening, Early Return (ER), Early Return of Dependents (ERD), Overseas Screening Deficiency Report (OSDR), and Overseas Screening Deficiency Report/Early Return (OSDR/ER) requests are listed below: 

Overseas Screening

ER, ERD, OSDR, and OSDR/ER request form NAVPERS 1300/28

Reference: MILPERSMAN 1300-306.

You can contact us at for more information.

Ref:  MILPERSMAN 1300-300 The Navy’s Suitability Screening Program is used to determine the suitability of Sailors and their family members for overseas or remote assignments, and is required for all Sailors and their families PCS transferring from the continental United States (CONUS) to overseas, or from overseas to overseas (referred to as Consecutive Overseas Tours, or COT).

In-Place Consecutive Overseas Tours (IPCOT) requires transferring commands to re-screen service members and their families transferring from overseas to overseas.  The medical portion of the screening may be waived if the transferring and gaining commands are both serviced by the same Medical Treatment Facility (MTF).  The reminder of the screening requirements as outlined in the MILPERSMAN remains in affect.  For further information see MILPERSMAN 1300-304.

The responsibility for determining suitability rests with the CO of the transferring command.  The CO must ascertain whether the service member or family member(s) possess any performance, disciplinary, financial, psychological, medical or other physical attributes which would preclude them from conducting themselves as worthy representatives of the United States in a foreign country.

CO's of the transferring command are responsible for providing an update to Navy Personnel Command and the gaining command within 15 calendar days of receipt of orders.  This update must state that the member is either found suitable, unsuitable, or that more time is needed.  If the command needs more time, status must be updated every thirty days thereafter or until a final determination is made.


Please check out the new NAVPERS 1300/16.  It is now available as a fillable form in ADOBE PDF format.
