Temporary Housing

Temporary Lodging Facility

While single members may report almost immediately to their parent commands or get temporary billeting in the BEQ/BOQ, families will most likely spend some time at the Yokosuka Navy Lodge, Navy Gateway Inn and Suites, or a hotel in town. Ensure you have a copy of your orders, the Family Entry Approval, and passports for the check-in process. The Navy Lodge and Navy Gateway Inns and Suites have a limited number of rooms that allow pets. It is a good idea for you or your Sponsor to contact the NEX Kennel for a reservation for pet boarding. Reservations are accepted only in person or via phone, please call DSN 315-243-4620 or internationally 011-81-46-816-4620.

Central Billeting Office

The Central Billeting Office is located in the BEH Bldg. 3333 across the street from the Personnel Support Detachment (PSD) Bldg. 1555.  All buses from the airports stop just outside the lobby door of the PSD building.  The Central Billeting Office is open 24 hours and handles all BEH reservations and assignments.  All major credit cards are accepted.  The BEH can be contacted at DSN 315-243-5569 or internationally 011-81-46-816-5569 or the Department of Defense Lodging homepage.

Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA)

Guests are responsible for paying their Lodge bill after each 10 day period of stay. Your Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA) will be paid by the Disbursing Office after the Navy Lodge endorses your receipt. Important: Your TLA will not start until you have checked into your command, or into the Transient Personnel Unit if your afloat command is out of port. You cannot draw TLA while you are in a travel status. You can only draw TLA while in a leave status after you have checked into you gaining command (or TPU) and after your gaining command authorizes subsequent leave. If Welcome Center personnel state that Military Family Housing may be available within 60 days you may remain at the Navy Lodge and TLA will be paid in 10-day increments until you move in. Declination of Military Family Housing may result in TLA being stopped. If the Welcome Center indicates Military Family Housing will not be available within 60 days you must actively pursue off base housing (a minimum of 5 houses per week) to be eligible for TLA.
