New Base Access Procedures - Effective July 9, 2018
Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton recently implemented the Defense Biometric Identification System, a new Physical Access Control System.
This new system focuses on access control procedures to ensure the protection of Active Duty personnel, residents and civilian employees. These policies are intended to help Marines accomplish their mission and keep families aboard Camp Pendleton safe, while allowing access to authorized personnel, contractor & vendors and sponsored visitors.
DoD issued ID card holders will automatically be enrolled in DBIDS after their first ID scan upon entering Camp Pendleton. DoD issued ID card holders may also sponsor visitors by using the Sponsored Visitor Roster Request below.
All unescorted visitors are required to obtain a DBIDS credential/pass in order to gain authorized access to Camp Pendleton. Unescorted visitors must be sponsored or on official business. Visitors will have their identity proofed & vetted, and be issued an appropriate DBIDS credential/pass at no cost. Visitors must obtain aDBIDS credential/pass at the Camp Pendleton Visitor Center (Bldg. 20255T). Contractors & vendors on official business must obtain a DBIDS credential/pass at Base Access Control (Bldg. 41501T).
Visitors/Contractors & Vendors can pre-enroll in DBIDS using the DBIDS pre-enrollment button below.
NOTE: Pre-enrollment is currently only possible if an individual sponsor can be identified. Visitors are required to enter their sponsors name, phone number & email address when pre-enrolling in DBIDS.
