Critical Installation Information

Housing and Transportation in Los Angeles can be the single biggest concern for members and their families. Single first term airman must contact their First Sergeant for housing arrangements. For those wishing or required to live in the community there are many opportunities to rent both apartments and houses in the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area. Unfortunately, Southern California also has the reputation of having one of the most expensive real estate markets in the United States. Both rental and purchase prices will exceed most other areas in the continental United States by an average of 15% to 40%. However, the Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) for LA AFB is also higher when compared to other areas. The Housing Management Office can assist with off-base referrals. Call 310-653-5347/8460/8469 for their assistance if needed.

Passports and Visas

Ensure member and/or dependents have the required passports and/or visa prior to final out-processing. Member and/or dependents are not allowed to final out-process without the required passports/visas in hand for themselves (if applicable) and/or dependents. Members electing the accompanied tour will not be permitted to out-process without having the required passports/visas in hand for themselves (if applicable) and/or dependents.

These actions are necessary to prevent unforeseen hardships to the military members and their families. Therefore, as a last reiteration, it is essential, members do not out-process without having the appropriate passports/visas for themselves (if applicable) and/or dependents.
