Home Leave
  1. Click the Home Leave icon in eServices.
  2. Enter the dates, click ‘Calculate Duration’.
  3. Enter your travel itinerary for you and your family if applicable. Remember to enter both the itinerary to the place of home leave and also the return travel to the duty station.

There is no need to attach documentation.

Before your apply it is very important that you selected the right HR Focal Point. If your duty station is New York, then enter your HR Focal Point from OHR/Staff Administrative Services. If your duty station is located outside New York, then enter the HR Focal Point from the local HR office.

When you submit your Home Leave it is first approved by your supervisor. When the supervisor approves, an automatic email request is forwarded to your HR Focal Point for final approval. Once your HR Focal Point approves you will automatically receive an email that it has been approved.


Note: Remember to keep your ticket stubs. Upon return from Home Leave you need to certify your Home Leave and upload proof of travel. Please see instruction on this. Please note it is not mandatory to upload proof of travel – but it is mandatory to a) certify that Home Leave took place as requested and b) to keep originals of the proof of travel for a period of two years or until the next Home Leave travel.
