Preparing to Go Overseas

BIDDING AND ASSIGNMENTS:  LEARN ABOUT POSTS

The Overseas Briefing Center publishes the comprehensive Foreign Service Assignment Notebook: What Do I Do Now?, covering all aspects of an overseas assignment to a U.S. Embassy/Consulate abroad.  Each chapter outlines a framework for the many tasks involved in an overseas move.  

U.S. Government employees and their family members assigned to a U.S. embassy/consulate overseas can visit the Overseas Briefing Center in Arlington, VA to use OBC's collection of resources for researching overseas posts and the logistics of an international move. OBC's collection is also accessible online to the foreign affairs community.  For more information about viewing resources online, contact the OBC.
