Visitor Control Center



The Visitor Control Center is closed on Sundays and federal holidays. Effective Monday, Oct. 3, 2022, all visitor requests must be submitted via e-mail 72 hours prior to the arrival of guests. Foreign visitor requests must be submitted 30 days prior to their arrival. All e-mail requests must be sent to the Visitor Control Center organizational e-mail,, with the following subject line: Unofficial/Official Requests (S: Date of Arrival). All e-mail requests must be submitted from a government email. These requests are not able to be processed when sent from commercial emails such as Gmail, Yahoo, etc. Once the request has been received, the VCC will only reach out if there is a problem with the request. If you have not been contacted by the VCC within 24 hours of the arrival of your guests, the individuals have been cleared to be on base. Please note, if a visit is less than five days, the request will be as stated above. If the visit is longer than five days, a DVES request must be submitted. Please note the VCC organizational e-mail is monitored Monday-Friday.

Due to reduced customer need, the VCC will be closed on Sundays beginning March 5, 2023. In an attempt to streamline the process, emergent visitor pass requests will be supported by a VCC team member directly at the Main Gate in Lane 1.  Customers attempting to drop off a Function List on Sunday may still do so by depositing them in a locked drop box in the atrium of the VCC. For scheduled visits please be sure to come to the VCC during normal operating hours Monday-Saturday to avoid delays in processing. To ensure the fastest service, customers should pre-register their guests in DBIDS via the DBIDS Visitor Enrollment System (DVES) available at
