United States Department of Veterans Affairs

How to Apply

Although pre-registration for eligible veterans is not necessary, veterans who are permanently relocating to a country under the FMP Office's jurisdiction are encouraged to notify the FMP Office upon establishing a permanent foreign mailing address (FMP address and telephone number). At that time, arrangements will be made for FMP registration and the mailing of detailed program material. Included in the program material will be an FMP Handbook which will provide detailed information on benefit coverage and limitations, how to select healthcare providers, and claim filing instructions.

Veterans who are simply traveling and are not planning on a permanent relocation need not bother with notification. Program information, however, is available upon request.

Please Note

A copy of your rating decision that includes the listing and description of all service-connected disabilities is required to determine veteran eligibility. If you do not have a copy of your rating decision, the FMP will request one from your servicing Regional Office.
