NCTS Sponsor Program
A Buon Giorno!
As the Command Sponsorship Coordinator here at NCTS, I welcome you to Italy. You have been assigned a sponsor. However, if you have not been contacted by your sponsor, please contact me via E-mail. Include your current address and phone number and I will ensure that you are contacted ASAP. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all about your relocating to Naples Italy. My preferred method of communication is via email. However, my telephone number is DSN 314-626-4157 or Commercial 011-39-081-568-4157; Fax DSN 314-626-2864 or fax Commercial 011-39-081-568-2864, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
NCTS Naples is located in the C4I building on Capodichino Naval Base. This command currently consists of 7 departments broken up into 19 divisions. There is approximately 15 Officers, 325 Enlisted personnel aboard and 40 civilians.
I recommend you log on to the NSA Naples website to get the most current information.
If you are arriving accompanied (with family members) I strongly recommend you pay special attention to a few things:
Please work with your Sponsor to initiate childcare arrangements immediately upon
receipt of your PCS orders.
There is a requirement to obtain a Sojourner’s Permit for all personnel arriving not holding an active duty identification card. Part of this process requires 4 passport size photos for each family member. It is easiest if you arrive with these photos
all ready to go, so that you are not tied to the limited photo facilities here.
Another great suggestion is to ensure all drivers in your family are comfortable driving a standard (stick shift) transmission vehicle. The Naples style of driving in and of itself can be stressful to some, and it may prove easier to have your spouse learn to drive a stick shift in the States, in a known environment.
It is recommended (not required) that everyone coming to NCTS Naples obtain a tourist passport. This will make it easier to travel throughout Europe.
