Any sponsored visitor who is 18 or older will have a computer background check through the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and the National Crime Information Center. If certain past convictions or other unfavorable information is found, the would-be guest could be denied access with no explanation.

For Common Access Cards (CACs) and Dependent ID cards information, please visit the ID Card Page.

Pass and ID is open daily, 6 a.m.-10 p.m., but is typically busiest from 6:30-10:30 a.m., Monday through Friday. First-time visitors and contractors, who are sponsored by a base organization and have a state-issued photo ID and auto insurance verification, can be issued a pass in as little as 15 to 20 minutes.

A crowded lobby and/or computer breakdowns, however, can stretch the wait to an hour or more. Here's a look at some common situations and how to deal with them:

You left your CAC or contractor pass at home
Go back and get it. If necessary, Pass and ID can verify your status through the DEERS Office during normal business hours, 7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. After hours, a sponsor will be needed in order to obtain a visitor pass to gain access to the installation.

You're a contracting company and need access for a new employee or crew
Contact the Air Force Sustainment Center Contracting Directorate for proper procedures on contracting passes/cards.

Your unit is hosting an event with civilians who don't have pass cards attending
Fill out an Entry Authorization Letter and provide it to Pass and ID two weeks before the event. Officials advise submitting the EAL at least a week in advance to ensure it is processed and given to gate guards ahead of the function.
