What is remote sign-up?

Remote sign-up allows passengers to enter the backlog (apply for Space-A travel) by faxing copies of proper service documentation along with desired country destinations and family members’ first names to the aerial port of departure. The fax data header will establish date/time of signup; therefore, Active Duty personnel must ensure the fax is sent no earlier than the effective date of leave. Mail and e-mail entries are also permitted. The original date and time of sign-up shall be documented and stay with the passenger until his or her destination is reached. Also at any time the passenger may sign up for space-available travel to return to home station. NOTE: If applicable, a statement that all required border clearance documents are current is required.
