An Overseas visit is to be encouraged and can be undertaken by an individual or by Unit, Corps and Army teams. Such visits give the opportunity to compete against opposition of a different culture and in many cases train and/or compete in challenging conditions. They can also be used to reward achievement, as a means of developing team spirit and as a pre/post season preparation/finale. An overseas visit can also be used as a recruiting and retention tool. They are fun and for many is a welcome change from the current high level of operational commitments.

In the last 12 months, individuals have competed in Holland, France, Morocco, Antarctica, USA and Egypt. Army, Corps and Unit teams have competed in a range of sports in USA, Portugal, Brazil, South Africa, Barbados, Canada, Phillipines, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka and Spain.

An Overseas visit will normally require Authority (ASCB or equivalent), Staff Clearance (chain of command) and Diplomatic Clearance (from host and any transit country). The procedure for organizing a tour/visit is in 2017DIN10-025.
