Retiree Customs Pink Cards extended through December

U.S. Army Europe coordinated with the German Federal Customs Directorate to continue an automatic extension of expired/expiring German Form 0217 (Pink Cards) through Dec. 31.

This eliminates the need for a generally COVID-19 high-risk group to personally visit military customs offices in person if their card was valid thru March 1, 2020. However, for those individuals with a card that expired prior to March 1, 2020 a visit to their local USACA-E field office is required for the issuance of a status verification

Stuttgart Customs Field Office:

As German Customs operates differently regionally, Pink Card holders should monitor guidance from their local German Customs Offices. For current hygiene protection requirements, German Customs offices may be working by appointment only, or to avoid further traveling, may be allowing card holders to submit their receipts via mail or to provide receipts at a later date. We recommend contacting the office by phone or email before visiting in person.
