DA Form 31, Request and Authority for Leave, is a United States Army form that is necessary to request permission for temporary military leave. This form can be used to request an emergency leave, a vacation, travel, or an extended pass.
Despite being issued by the Department of the Army (DA), the form is often incorrectly called the DD Form 31. The latest edition of the form was issued on September 1, 1993, and was recently modified to include digital signatures that completely eliminate the need to print the form out. An up-to-date fillable DA 31 is available for download and digital filing below.
