Welcome to Camp Humphreys
Welcome to the United States Army Garrison Humphreys and congratulations on what will be an exciting and fulfilling assignment. Over the past few years, our installation has become the largest U.S. Army installation in the Republic of Korea and you will surely enjoy the benefits of our growth.
As one of your first steps you will want to visit the Eighth Army Newcomers page ⚠
With the growth, we have opened new gyms, one with an indoor swimming pool, many new barracks and dining facilities, and four schools (two elementary, one middle and a high school). Those facilities complement other great places, like our outdoor swimming pool, library, guest lodge, and education center.
With all the construction associated with our expansion, you will experience occasional inconveniences. But, one thing will remain constant as we grow: our garrison staff anticipates your arrival with a willingness to serve your needs.
USAG-Humphreys offers a variety of programs and services to ease the transition to your new home, whether you will be living in the barracks, family housing, or in a dwelling in the local community. Most of our married Service Members live off post, in privately-owned apartments.
If desired, your school-aged children will attend one of our newly constructed DoDEA campuses. If you bring your family (Command Sponsored) our housing office will provide you with furniture and appliances in either your on-post or off-post apartment. Our Army Community Service (ACS) program not only provides Korean Head Start classes and weekly newcomers orientations, but also offers a lending closet to temporarily provide you with essential items for your new home.
Among the many activities you will undertake as you prepare for your move, we ask that you pay particular attention to these:
Service Members with dependents: If you would like to bring your family to Korea you may be able to because of a recent change in policy that increased the number of command sponsorship opportunities substantially. Visit your local Military Personnel Division (MPD) Office or S1 to apply for command sponsorship before you depart. Communicate with your sponsor as well, to help you make an informed decision. Applying well in advance will help ensure your desires are known to us. Along with that application, you will need to submit a completed Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) screening for overseas travel, so we can determine if we can meet the needs of your family.
Service Members with dependents: If you plan to bring your family with you, they will need government-issued passports for entry into Korea. As a Service Member, your orders provide your authorization for entry and exit. Again, speak with your local MPD office to obtain the proper application. Your Family Members will also need Visas issued by Korea for the duration of their stay. You should apply for the Visas when you apply for the passport.
All Service Members: Complete the United States Forces Korea (USFK) online training before leaving your current duty station.
All Service Members: Update your immunizations before your departure.
All Spouses: Employment opportunities are extremely limited for spouses who accompany their Soldier; however, we regularly seek new employees in our Col. Dean Hess Child Development Center ⚠
and Child, Youth and School Services. ⚠
All Spouses: Spouses who wish to maintain a home-based business must comply with the Status of Forces Agreement. Additionally, home-based business owners are prohibited from using overseas military post offices for business shipments, so you should be prepared to use Federal Express on post or the Korean postal system as necessary.
Once again, welcome to the USAG Humphreys family. We look forward to meeting you and wish you a rewarding tour with us in the "Land of the Morning Calm."
Sponsors are reminded to make advance reservations at the Camp Humphreys Lodge to assist those arriving. This step will avoid unnecessary waiting and streamlines the check-in process for new arrivals. Special accommodations for pets, room cribs and other needs can be better met with advance reservations.
