Hi there, I work for the U.S. Government. My husband is in the private sector and his job is sending him on a temporary detail for 2 years, overseas.
Does anyone know if the government allows remote work overseas? Or does anyone have a similar experience?
Thanks!

To my knowledge- they’ll only allow it for a very short window and it’s very rare as it creates more risk with all the firewalls etc.

Thank you

Long shot: Could you request an assignment in the Foreign Agricultural Service at the same post where your husband will be?

Very rare. I traveled to Canada and Bangladesh but did not get an approval to remote work from those countries.

To parrot everyone else, approvals are limited. My experience through coworkers has been that 2 months is the limit for approval on our end IFF you can get it. So you could visit a couple times of year or try for a rotation.

My agency requires multiple levels of approval, including top of the organization and the embassy (in which ever country you’ll be living in). Lots of paperwork and requires monthly check-ins.

Probably depends on your agency. The agency I work for has completely banned working outside of the country. We did previously have someone in Spain but they moved back to the US before the ban hit.
