This booklet has been developed to assist you and your families to go through this process as painlessly as possible. It has been prepared by HQ BFG staff and several other experienced organisations to help you understand what to expect and how to prepare yourselves. Please read the detail and undertake the preparations it recommends – this will avoid last minute challenges over administrative details such as closing bank accounts and de/re-registering your car.
It is important to highlight that unlike previous moves there will be no BFG elements remaining in Germany who can support you with outstanding issues remotely. Therefore, it is extremely important that you are proactive in planning and managing your move to ensure your return goes smoothly.
Please also remember that you are not alone and your line manager, Defence Business Services and numerous organisations are available to assist you with advice and practical support, or can redirect you to other forms of support.
