Moving to Naples
Once you know that you are coming to Naples, there is no time to waste in getting ready to move. A move overseas requires months of preparation, and the sooner you have orders in hand, the sooner you can get started. This section will provide you with some of the details and answers to some of the most commonly asked questions on moving overseas. It cannot be overemphasized that you should immediately contact your sponsor. Constant communication between you, your family and your sponsor will make your move smoother and eliminate needless worries and frustrations.
Your current command should immediately begin the process of overseas screening for you and your family, as soon as you have orders in hand. This typically consists of medical examinations, inoculations, and an interview with a command representative. Your command’s administrative department should have all the details on this process, so contact them immediately.
Additionally, if you or one of your family members has a change in their medical condition after completion of their overseas screening, notify your command at once. You should contact your respective medical facility to begin the immunization series far enough in advance so a last minute rush is avoided. Having to get several shots at once can be painful, especially for children.
An “International Certificate of Vaccination” (PHS Form 731) is required and will be issued before leaving the United States when you have completed the required shots. Booster shots are given as required at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Naples.
