Status of Forces Agreement

Your installation employment readiness expert will be able to help you understand the possible impact of Status of Forces Agreement as it relates to your employability in an overseas location. MilitaryINSTALLATIONS will help you find the right person at your existing or new duty station.

Status of Forces Agreements, or SOFAs, determine the legal status of U.S. armed forces stationed abroad. Each installation is governed by the country-specific SOFA. To find out what the individual installation restrictions are for spouse employment, look for 'Employment' on the Military Installation Locator. Find additional resources and information on the types of employment available at your new location so you can begin your job search.

Use the MilitaryINSTALLATIONS tool to search by installation, state or program to find the information relevant to you. Enter 'Spouse Education, Training and Careers' under the Programs drop-down menu and your installation or postal code to find a point of contact to advise on employment overseas.
