  • Foreign Per Diem Rates:
    To calculate the allowable foreign per diem rate (for travel that is not within the United States, Canada or Puerto Rico), go to Foreign Per Diem Rates by Location, select the country and then the city you are traveling to and make a note of the “M&IE Rate.” Next go to FTR Appendix B (Breakdown of Meals/Incidentals), find the M&IE Rate of your destination and make a note of the “Incidental” rate.
