OCONUS is an acronym that stands for "outside of contiguous United States" or "outside of conterminous United States". It refers to Alaska and Hawaii, which do not border other U.S. states, and the rest of the world.
OCONUS is typically used by the U.S. Department of Defense and National Weather Service. The acronym can also be seen online indicating shipping prices and options for items being sent to places outside of the contiguous United States.
OCONUS may also stand for "outside of continental United States", which refers to Hawaii (since it is not located in North America like Alaska) and the rest of the world. OCONUS comes from the more popular CONUS acronym, which refers to the contiguous or continental United States.
