The following are some of the things you will be doing after you first arrive in Hawaii to help get you on your feet. Your sponsor should be meeting you at the airport and walking you through everything to make your initial time in Hawaii as stress free as possible.
Transportation from Honolulu International Airport: Your sponsor should be meeting you just outside the baggage claim area.
Housing: Prior to arriving on island, individuals with dependents should contact the Family Housing Office at (808) 474-1999. The housing office is located at the Navy Aloha Center, across of the Fleet and Family Service Center/PSD at the Moanalua Shopping Center at Pearl Harbor. Additionally, an advanced housing application should be faxed or mailed, along with a copy of your orders and service record Page 2 (dependent verification) to (808) 474-1822. Individuals are required to report to the Family Housing Office within 72 hours of arrival in order to be eligible for TLA.
Checking into the Hotel: Married Personnel will be staying at a hotel of their choice (TLA Approved Hotels). Make sure you let your sponsor know your flight itinerary as soon as possible so he can make your hotel reservations for you.
Checking into the Barracks/Dormitory for unaccompanied personnel:
Single personnel will be checking into the Hawaii Regional Unaccompanied Housing Administration Office within 72 hours of arrival at Gabrunas Hall, Bldg. 1323 for enlisted personnel and into BOH Central Assignments in Lockwood Hall for officers.

Checking into the Command: Prior to checking into the BEH/BOH you need to get your orders stamped at Bldg 150 Quarterdeck.The day you arrive you may be tired so your sponsor will leave you at the barracks or hotel to take a shower and freshen up or catch up on some lost sleep and he/she will let the command know you have arrived.
