  2. The Governor should now send a formal request for a transfer to his Governor General, CC'ing his System Moff, the Governor General of the planet he wishes to transfer to, and the System Moff of the planet.
  3. The Governor General of the planet to which the governor is transferringshould then reply to all the addressees on the request, CC'ing the DGMF or GMF.
  4. The (D)GMF will now approve the transfer.
