The mission or IO must promptly submit a notification of termination via eGov for personnel at the conclusion of their assignment in the United States, or for any personnel terminating their diplomatic or consular duties to engage in other pursuits. All immunities, if any, enjoyed by the principal and his/her family members in the United States terminate upon departure or 30 days after termination, whichever comes first, unless in a particular case a different time has been specified by the Department.
Whenever any person who has been accorded status as a member of the family in the United States ceases to reside with the principal (other than a student attending boarding school or college as described above), such person immediately ceases to be a member of the family within the meaning of the VCDR and VCCR. In such cases, the mission must notify OFM. Accordingly, all immunities, if any, previously enjoyed by such person would terminate upon departure or 30 days after ceasing to be a member of the immediate family forming part of the household of the principal, whichever comes first, unless in a particular case a different time has been specified by the Department.
Individuals will generally have 30 days following termination or change in family circumstance to depart the United States or seek a change or adjustment of their status. For exceptional circumstances, individuals may request an extra 30 days in advance, for a total of 60 days following their termination or change in family circumstance.
All Department-issued documents must be returned to the Department.
If an employee is transferring from one foreign mission post to another in the United States, the foreign mission or IO must submit a Notice of Termination via eGov for the prior position and an NOA via eGov for the new position. When a principal completes his/her tour of duty, and a Notice of Termination is processed by OFM, any family members working at the mission will also be terminated.
