Eglin moves to 100% ID checks

  • Published

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- The 96th Security Forces Squadron began 100% identification checks for anyone accessing the installation April 17, 2024. Visitors who do not have a DOD issued ID card will need to get a visitor pass.  

Uniformed service members, their dependents (over the age of 16), DOD employees, and retirees can sponsor these passes, which can be obtained at the East Gate and West Gate visitor control centers until the new Air Force Armament Museum VCC opens in May.

Passes are good for up to 60 days. However, if a visitor pass is required for more than 60 days, a commander’s approval is needed and can then be issued for up to a year except for guests of retirees. Retirees with visitors will need to renew those passes every 60 days. Passes should be shredded or turned back into the VCC when no longer needed.
