Installation passes
(Back to top)

- Sponsor and visitor must be present to obtain the installation pass.
- Sponsor must reside on the installation.
- Visitors must show proof of travel (plane ticket, itinerary, train ticket, etc.). Special cases will be reviewed by the BSB S-2.
- Visitor category passes will not be extended beyond 90 days unless the visitor can prove the purchase of the host nation Visa, the sponsor has obtained an exception to policy from housing, and a memorandum from the sponsor’s unit commander requesting the installation pass.
NOTE: If your visitors arrive during the weekend, they may be signed on the installation at the daily visitor pass office (parking lot between the Provost Marshal Office and the AAFES warehouse). Please be reminded that passes at this location can only be given on a 24-hr basis, and they must be returned on time at the point of issue. Sponsors must escort visitors they sign in at all times, and ensure that the visitor is present when returning the pass.
When registering in IACS, the following documentation is needed to ensure eligibility. Please make sure you have the following:
- Military: Copy of DD1172 or Orders or Copy of DD93 (all three documents should include the names of eligible family members). If your DEROS has changed from your initial registration, go to the IACS office (at 90th PSB) to update your registration. Failure to do so will cause delays at installation entry control points (registration with previous DEROS will cause your information to be archived).
- Family members of military personnel: Same as military (above).
- Employees: DD1172 (signed by the civilian personnel office).
- U.S. based contractors: DD1172 or equivalent document.

Information security – identify theft prevention tips
(Back to top)
· Empty your wallet of extra credit cards, better yet cancel the ones you don’t use.
· Order your credit report once a year from the credit bureaus. Check for inaccuracies or fraudulent use.  Check www.ftc.gov on how to receive a free report.
· Shred all pre-approved credit applications, credit card receipts, bills and other financial information prior to disposing of them.
· Try not to leave mail in your mailbox. Pre-approved credit cards applications are like candy to the Identity Thief.
· Protect your Social Security Number, store it someplace safe. Do not travel with it.
· Do not write them on your cards or keep them in your wallet.
· Keep items with personal information in a safe place, this includes your children’s.
· Do not give out personal information on the telephone, through the mail, or over the Internet unless you initiated the call.
· Be cautious about where you leave your Military ID card or other personal information.  Report missing, lost or stolen ID’s to the MP’s immediately!
