Annual Tour

Annual Tour

** All IRs use myPers to request orders - Submit HERE or get more info HERE **

All Annual tour requests must be submitted by 31 May each year. This is to ensure they are published by 30 June each year per AFMAN 36-2136. If you are in a situation where it is after 1 June and you haven't put in your AT orders request yet, you'll need to complete this MFR and have it signed by your RegAF supervisor and Det CC. It is usually possible to modify an existing orders request, so if you're not sure of your dates prior to 1 June, go ahead and submit your request with your "best guess" dates and modify later if needed. 

Providing the following items will assist/ensure your orders getting processed:
  • If Applicable, Annual Tour Special Tour Request (ATSRF)
  • Any Applicable Reporting Instructions
  • IMR print-out
IDTs in Conjunction
Some IRs choose to plan their IDTs and AT "in conjunction" in order to use the travel benefit of the AT orders to cover the IDT periods as well.  You must put the days in UTAPS and notate on the orders request that you are doing IDTs in conjunction. 

Split AT
Split AT may be allowed by Det CC to accommodate special mission or training requirements and is the exception. Split ATs will not be for the IR’s convenience and must be justified in the remarks section of the AROWS-R request. IDTs may be taken in conjunction with split tour; however, they may only be split when travel is involved. IRs must submit a Special Tour Request for approval to split their AT.
