Within 72 hours of arrival it is required for newcomers to report to their housing office. The housing office will direct you to either temporary on/ off base lodging or you may even be authorized for TLA (which can range from 30-60 days), this will depend on housing availability. Prior to making a reservation at a TLA- approved hotel, authorization is required. Authorization can be granted by requesting a TLA “Non-availability” letter. Here’s a current list of Oahu’s TLA-approved hotels.
