Air Force assignments to the Republic of Turkey are now unaccompanied, 12-month tours. This affects all Airmen that arrive in Turkey after Sept. 21, 2016. Airmen with families who were planning to elect the accompanied tour need to be aware of the change before they make any move plans. Affected military and civilian Airman should contact their base personnel sections to confirm they have accurate, updated orders. The Air Force Personnel Center (AFPC) will work one-on-one with Airmen who experience legitimate hardships as a result of the change. Military and civilian personnel assigned to U.S. Embassy or the Security Cooperation Organizations duty are not affected by this change.
