Mandatory Reporting of Travel to Foreign Countries
NEW! Mandatory Approval/Reporting Requirements for Travel to Foreign Countries

The Director of National Intelligence has made it mandatory that personnel with a security clearance to request approval and report all travel to foreign countries. Commander approval must be obtained prior to foreign travel using a Foreign Travel Worksheet which can be obtained from your unit’s Security Manager. Once the worksheet is completed and signed by your Commander, an OSI prebrief is required.

To accomplish the OSI prebrief go to the AF portal and search "Foreign Travel." Navigate to "Foreign Travel Prebrief and Debrief" to complete your travel survey (https://www.my.af.mil/gcss-af/USAF/ep/globalTab.do?channelPageId=s88B4F00B2D70DF4E012DBE0975FE0BAB). Select “Click here to go to a page where you can complete a prebrief survey specific to your base.” Part of the survey is reviewing the country specific travel advisories by following the link provided. Upon submission, the survey will automatically be emailed to AFOSI who will identify anyone who needs an in-person brief. It is imperative you complete the prebrief survey far enough in advance to conduct an in-person brief, if necessary. Airmen who need an in-person brief will attend the Air Force Mandatory CI Awareness Briefing, which will be held the 3rd Thursday of the Month at the Talkeetna Theater at 9 a.m.

Upon return, member will return to the "Foreign Travel" site on the AF portal and complete the debrief survey.
