If you are Active Duty or an adult Family Member and reside on base and your visitor is your grandparent, parent, or sibling, (or that of your spouse), you may request a Visitor Pass for up to one year. Ask a clerk at the Visitor Center for details.
Direct your visitors to report to the Camp Pendleton Visitor Center (Bldg. 20255T) to obtain a DBIDS pass/credential. Visitors processed at the Visitor Center will have their identity proofed, be subject to a criminal history check, they will be photographed and digitally fingerprinted. Visitors who are driving are required to show a valid driver's license, state registration, and proof of insurance. Wait times may be lengthy.
Per MCO 5530.13, identification cards marked not valid for federal purposes, federal limits may apply, or any other similar language may not be accepted by DoD for the purpose of unescorted access (i.e. to obtain a Visitor Pass or DBIDS Credential).
Sponsors can avoid the Visitor Center process entirely by meeting their visitor at the gate and escorting them in person.
