Base visitor pass, special event procedures outlined

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- While entering base is a daily routine for those working here, having a friend or family member visit may take some coordination.

All Department of Defense ID card holders are eligible to sponsor visitors (18 and older) onto the base and can do so by three different methods.

The first is to meet their guest at the visitor control center during duty hours, 6 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and getting them a visitor pass for the duration of your request, not to exceed 60 days.

The guest will need a valid photo identification for the VCC clerk to conduct a National Criminal Identification Check before being issued a pass. The guest will also need to show proof of registration and insurance if they are going to drive their vehicle onto base. When the VCC is closed they can have a pass issued from the west gate.

The second is to have the individual drive through the gate in the same POV as the eligible sponsor. They will only need to show valid photo identification.

The third is for the sponsor to report to the VCC and complete a pre-visit request. The individual will be able to report to the VCC, within 30 days, without the sponsor to receive a visitor pass. They will have to have a valid photo ID, proof of registration and insurance if driving their POV.

Special Events
Personnel that are eligible to sponsor may also file a special event request with the VCC. Special event requests must be completed and delivered to the VCC 72 hours before the event. All individuals will be checked through NCIC prior to the event. Guest information includes the individual's full name, date of birth and drivers license number/state of issue. These request forms are issued at the VCC.

For questions on visitor passes and special event requests, contact the VCC at 556-6660.
