Status of Forces Agreement

Your installation employment readiness specialist will be able to help you understand the possible impact of the 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, provide the legal framework for day-to-day operations of service members and families while stationed in a foreign country. Each installation is governed by the country-specific SOFA.  These agreements may have implications on spouse employment overseas, so contact your installation employment readiness specialist for more information on the impact SOFA may have on your job search.

Use the MilitaryINSTALLATIONS tool to search by installation, state or program to find the information relevant to you. Select ‘Spouse Education, Training and Careers' from the list of programs and services, enter your installation or postal code and select ‘Search’ to find a point of contact near you.
