Please note that telephonic sponsorship for base access is no longer authorized due to Air Force PII requirements.
In order to sponsor visitors, please utilize the Edwards Visitor Control Center SharePoint site (CAC required): https://cs2.eis.af.mil/sites/22001/vcc/default.aspx. All visitors must be vetted prior to entry. If the VCC is closed, the sponsor must physically come to the gate for visitors who have not been pre-vetted. Pre-vetted visitors may enter from any installation entry control point (West, North or South Gate). Visitor passes issued at installation entry control points will be issued for a maximum of 72 hours. When sponsoring visitors or contractors for more than three days, individuals must pick up DBIDS passes or cards at the VCC.
To have your visitors pre-vetted, please submit your SharePoint request at least three duty days prior to their arrival. This also allows for sponsorship after the VCC has closed without requiring the sponsor’s presence at the respective gate.
Drivers and passengers are required to have a REAL ID Act-compliant state-issued driver’s license or identification card and the current vehicle registration and proof of insurance.
For a single event with more than 10 visitors, please submit a Visitor Authorization List at least three duty days in advance. Please do not submit sponsorships more than seven days out.
Sponsorship requires the following information: visitor’s first and last name, date of birth, driver’s license number, state of issue, destination, arrival date and departure date. Sponsors will be required to provide their first and last name, a contact number and one of the following: EDI, DOD ID number or SSAN. For more base access information, please contact the Edwards Visitor Control Center.
