So I am finishing my anesthesia residency in July and moving to England. The man generating my orders(a civilian) has told me that my family(wife/kids) has to have no fee gov. passports, but they cannot even apply for them until I am ON ACTIVE DUTY. This means I will be in England, and they will be in US waiting on these passports. My questions: 1. If I have orders in hand, (but still months from active duty) can I apply NOW for ID card, DEERS enrollment, no fee gov passports? 2. Will I need a no fee gov passport to travel to the OCONUS location(this man says no, all I need is orders and ID) 3. Is it possible for dependents to travel with orders and ID only?
