January 01, 2018 - The Home Leave policy has been updated to clarify who is eligible for home leave and to provide additional guidance on how to provide proof of travel. More specifically, an internationally recruited staff member is not eligible for home leave when: a) He/she is serving and residing in the country recognized as his/her country of nationality for UN purposes, in accordance with Staff Rule 4.3;b) He/she is serving and residing in the country where he/she is exceptionally authorized to retain his/her permanent resident status, in accordance with Staff Rule 4.5 (d); staff members are required to upload supporting documents into eServices to provide evidence that they have complied with the required minimum length of stay in their home country. These documents must be retained for two years and failure to produce such evidence when requested to do so may lead to the recovery of the amounts paid on account of the home leave.
The revised policy and procedures are effective July 01, 2016. The revision was made based on UN new compensation package for internationally-recruited staff members.
As of 1 June 2016, SOA is no longer applicable.
