The General Services Administration has posted the maximum per diem allowances for travel in foreign areas on its website for fiscal year 2005. According to GSA, the foreign travel per diem allowance is a payment in lieu of reimbursement for actual subsistence expenses.

The payment is provided to an employee and eligible dependents for daily expenses while on temporary travel status in the listed localities on official business away from an official post or assignment. The established rates are maximum amounts. Under travel regulations implemented by the General Services Administration and individual Federal agencies, authorizing officials are required to reduce the maximum rates when necessary to maintain a level of payment consistent with necessary travel expenses.
