Frequently Asked Questions


Will my partner be able to return from overseas if there is a family emergency?

Approval to leave an operational deployment rests with Commander Joint Forces New Zealand and depends on the circumstances of the "emergency" and the circumstances in the operational theatre at the time. Once the deployed person applies to leave the misson area (either temporarily or permanently) a process is in place to quickly give a decision once all the supporting information is provided. If approved the decision is also made as to who will pay for the required travel.
