haha No problem. You can put in/update an application on EAS at any time. Sooner is usually better so that you can work through any bugs and/or supply any further information that they might require.

intrepidtravelr Please also be very mindful of the healthcare situation where you may end up. Things have gotten a lot worse for civilians in many areas overseas, and it's unnerving feeling like you can't get quality emergency care if needed, at a minimum, let alone ongoing specialist care.
