The Family Member Travel Screening (FMTS) is a process to screen all family members of active duty and/or activated service members who request government-sponsored travel to Outside the Contiguous United States (OCONUS) locations (including Alaska and Hawaii) for potential travel concerns, which may include medical, educational, and/or dental needs, to ensure that the gaining location can meet their needs. The travel concerns are then coordinated between the losing and the gaining FMTS Office prior to executing final personnel actions to the OCONUS locations.
This screening may result in mandatory enrollment into the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) if the family member(s) meet the EFMP enrollment criteria.
Who is screened?
All family members of active duty and/or activated service members assigned aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton who request government-sponsored travel to remote and/or OCONUS locations (including Alaska and Hawaii).
When does screening occur?
Screening should be initiated immediately once the service member has been officially notified of an assignment to an OCONUS location
