1. Based on continuous review of reference (A), changes to clarify and further streamline the overseas screening process were needed. These changes include: designating SMTC, TRACENs, and CG Academy as entry approval points for single members; additional definition; removal of the CG-3307 requirement; clarification of performance and weight requirements; and add a country to an Entry Approval Point.

2. The following pen-and-ink changes to reference (A) are effective immediately:

  1. Enclosure 1, "Bona Fide Resident. (per JTR) The requirement to be command sponsored does not apply to a non-foreign OCONUS PDS if the acquired dependents are bona fide residents of the respective area. However, all bona fide residents who become dependents shall be screened to identify any special needs or other conditions."
  2. Enclosure 2, paragraph 1.b., add, "A new screening is not required for a member in receipt of fleet-up or one-year extension orders, however, the member shall advise the command of any condition/status changes since their last screening."
  3. Enclosure 2, paragraph 3.b.(2)(g), delete.
  4. Enclosure 2, paragraph 3.b.(3)(d), delete "and CG-3307".
  5. Enclosure 2, paragraph 3.b.(5)(a) and (g), change to "Special Missions Training Center (SMTC)".
  6. Enclosure 2, paragraph 3.c., Table 1, add to Base Portsmouth row "Canada".
  7. Enclosure 2, paragraph 3.c., Table 1, change to "Special Missions Training Center (SMTC)".
  8. Enclosure 2, paragraph 3.c., Table 1, add row "TRACENs/CG Academy" and "All single-members to OCONUS units".
  9. Enclosure 2, paragraph 4.c. delete, replace with: "Weight Standard. Member with a history of two or more failed weigh-ins in the past 36 months or currently on probation may be disqualified."
  10. Enclosure 2, paragraph 4.d. delete, replace with: "Performance. Member with an unsatisfactory conduct mark on the evaluation report in the previous 36 months may be disqualified."
  11. Enclosure 2, paragraph 5.a. and b., change to "SMTC".
  12. Enclosure 2, paragraph 5.b., Table 3, delete row "Complete form CG-3307."
  13. Reference B remains in effect for AY18.

3. These changes will be reflected in future versions of the CG-1300 (series) forms.

4. Standardized order notes, which are available on the Overseas Screening Portal, are updated regularly to ensure current JTR compliance. All SPOs shall utilize these notes.
