The following entitlements may be payable at certain duty stations:
Accelerated Home leave travel
While assignment to H, A and B duty stations carries a 24-month leave entitlement, at duty stations in categories C to E, home leave may be taken once a year (or every 12 months); in alternate years the entitlement may be used for travel to a country other than the home country (provided that the cost does not exceed that of travel to the place of home leave).
Additional education travel
In locations where educational facilities are not available or are deemed to be inadequate (requiring staff to send their children outside the country of the duty station for schooling), travel of the child between the duty station and the place of schooling may be paid twice in a year, provided the parent does not travel on home leave in that year. Inadequate educational facilities are assessed through the hardship questionnaire and may result from a number of factors such as: absence of schooling in the language used by the majority of international staff at the duty station; and secondary schools lacking accreditation for admittance to universities abroad.
Additional reimbursement of boarding costs
For staff serving at duty stations where educational facilities are not available or are deemed inadequate, an annual amount is payable in respect of boarding costs for children at primary and secondary school levels, over and above the maximum payable under the regular education grant.
Family visit travel
Family visit travel to eligible family members living outside the duty station may be authorized for staff serving at 12-month home leave duty stations (i.e., categories C to E), provided a minimum prescribed period has elapsed since the last home leave.
