In line with reference (a), and due to damage as a result of Typhoon Mawar, a stop movement for all permanent change of station (PCS) moves to Guam for Navy uniformed members, civilians, and their dependents is in effect until 30 June 2023. 2. This stop movement order affects all personnel scheduled to report to commands and activities in Guam as either an ultimate duty station or an intermediate duty station in conjunction with a PCS move. This notice is not directed at personnel scheduled for temporary additional duty (TAD) in the above mentioned area; however, personnel scheduled to report there in a TAD status over the next 30 days are advised to contact their chain of command to determine whether they should execute their TAD orders as scheduled. 3. Procedures. Personnel with orders to commands in the affected area who have not yet detached from their current command are directed to remain in place at their current command (if this is not possible for OCONUS Sailors, they should contact their detailer or MyNavy Career Center (MNCC) for further guidance). Ship and embarked units/staffs who will be getting underway and therefore cannot retain the Sailor on board should detach the Sailor and direct the Sailor to report to the beach detachment, or Transient Personnel Unit (TPU) for temporary duty awaiting further transfer (ACC 330). Members who have already detached, but have not departed the area of their homeport, are also directed to report to the nearest beach detachment, or TPU for temporary duty awaiting further transfer (ACC 330). Members who have detached from their command (sea or shore) and have commenced travel should report to the nearest naval installation and contact their detailer or MNCC for further direction. Detaching commands should make every effort to contact these members in order to advise them of the contents of this message and direct them to contact their detailer or MNCC. Personnel who have additional questions or circumstances that are not adequately addressed above should contact their detailer or MNCC for further assistance and or guidance. 4. Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) is coordinating with Navy Personnel Command (NPC) to hold all students pending and in route to Guam on station pending further direction. 5. Sailors executing an outbound PCS from Guam may proceed when travel is available unless awaiting a critical relief for required fact-to-face turnover (i.e., commanding officer, executive officer, etc.). Please contact your chain of command for further clarification. 6. Sailors currently stationed in Guam and returning from travel off the island should return to Guam as scheduled when travel is available. 7. Waivers. Waivers may be granted by Commander, Joint Region Marianas for compelling cases where the travel is determined to be mission essential, necessary for humanitarian reasons, and warranted due to extreme hardship. Waivers are to be done on a case-by-case basis, shall be limited in number, and will be submitted to: Mr. Nick Vanderwall Director, Total Force Manpower and Programs (J1) Joint Region Marianas E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org AND CDR Laura McDonald Deputy Director, Total Force Management (J1) Joint Region Marianas E-mail: email@example.com Requests will contain: Full name (Service member or Civilian) Rating/Paygrade Detaching command Reporting command to Guam Number of dependents accompanying member Detailed Reasoning to report to Guam (i.e. critical for the gaining command during recovery period or will face major hardship) 8. Information regarding entitlements. The following provides general information regarding entitlements. However, members are advised that the impact of this stop movement order on their specific entitlements is highly dependent on the member's individual circumstances. For questions regarding entitlements, members should contact MNCC. a. Per diem. Per diem allowances may be payable to the member in line with the specific requirements of the Joint Travel Regulations (JTR). However, if the member has detached the old permanent duty station (PDS) and remains in the area of the old PDS/homeport, in a temporary duty status, per diem is generally not payable to the member in line with the JTR. Personnel who have departed an overseas location and who are placed in a temporary duty awaiting further transfer (ACC 330) status upon arrival at the CONUS port of entry are entitled to per diem in line with the JTR. b. Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA). Personnel who have detached from an OCONUS command (or who have not yet detached but have vacated their permanent residence) and whose departure from the area of their overseas command is delayed by this message may be authorized payment of TLA in line with the JTR. c. BAH. Entitlement to BAH for members affected by this message remains unchanged from that of any other member under PCS orders. Members continue to receive BAH at the old PDS rate (except for members who have departed an overseas location, they will receive BAH-T) while on leave, in transit, or for periods of temporary duty en route to the ultimate duty station, so long as they do not occupy government quarters in excess of 30 days. This 30-day rule does not apply to new accessions, for which BAH stops upon occupation of government quarters for any duration. d. Temporary Lodging Expense (TLE). Authorization to receive TLE for members affected by this message remains unchanged from that of any other member under PCS orders. TLE is generally authorized for up to fourteen days if the member has vacated permanent quarters or household goods have been packed. e. Receipts/Records Pertaining to Added Expenses. Reimbursement for certain added expenses members and their dependents might incur because of this stop movement order are governed by existing law and regulation. While it may not be possible to fully reimburse every expense, members are advised to retain all pertinent receipts and records of expenses in the event some or all of the expenses are found to be reimbursable. 9. For questions regarding information contained within this NAVADMIN, contact the MNCC contact center at 833-330-MNCC (6622) or firstname.lastname@example.org. 10. Released by Vice Admiral Richard J.

Updating the Phased Rollout of the Government Travel Charge Card (GTCC) for Permanent Change of Station (PCS) Moves
Implementation of Phase III of the mandated use of the Government Travel Charge Card (GTCC) for
Permanent Change of Station (PCS) for Sailors in all paygrades, originally due to go into effect on Jan. 1,
2023, is on hold and will be announced in a future Naval Administrative (NAVADMIN) message. Enlisted
Sailors in paygrades E-7 to E-9 and officers O-4 and above are still required to use the GTCC for PCS, and
all service members are still required to use MyPCS Travel Voucher, regardless of whether they utilize the
GTCC. While not required for those outside the above paygrades, the GTCC remains authorized for all
others and can be used for authorized PCS expenses.
