All visitors to DSCC that do not possess a Department of Defense (DoD) identification card must be processed through the Visitor Control Center (weekends by DSCC Police) or escorted by a DoD ID card holder.

There are two types of visitors authorized on DSCC, escorted and unescorted.

Escorted visitors must present either a valid state driver's license, state identification card with photo, a valid U.S. passport, or a valid passport from other countries cleared by the State Department. A maximum of five visitors per escort are permitted and they can be in the same vehicle with the person performing escort duty, or in one follow-on vehicle.

Unescorted visitors will be registered in the Defense Biometric Identification System Pre-Enrollment website and the Visitor Notification System. Any CAC or Uniformed Services ID holder can sponsor a visitor for unescorted access.

Unescorted visitors must use the DBIDS pre-enrollment website and enter their information. Link Below.  Each visitor must print or download the confirmation which contains a six-digit number and send a copy of the confirmation to the sponsor and have it in their possession upon entering the installation.

Sponsors will then register the visitors they sponsor by using the VNS enrollment module (CAC-enabled).

Visitors must present a valid state photo ID at time of entry. After verifying that the visitor is sponsored and a police records check is favorably completed, the visitor will be issued a DBIDS visitor pass. This pass is to be retained by the visitor at all time while on DSCC. At the end of your visit, you may destroy the visitor pass. It is not necessary to return it to VCC.
