Pre-Enrollment and Rideshare Documents






The 9th Security Forces Squadron is streamlining Visitor passes to guests enabling these individuals the ability to pre-register using the Defense Biometrics Identification System(DBIDS) website from any smart device. This process will significantly reduce time spent waiting at the gate for a visitor’s pass. The following steps outline the procedures visitors and sponsors can take to expedite their entry. 

The following process will apply to ALL base Visitors. UBER Drivers will need to complete the pre-enrollment sheet labeled (UBER – DBIDS Pre-enrollment)

  1. Completion of the pre-enrollment via any smart device(For visitors who have never been onto the installation)
  2. Submission of QR/Alpha numeric code (this is provided from the pre-enrollment site),
  3. Copy of driver’s license
  4. Completion of Pre-enrollment worksheet
  5. Sponsor would then provide the following with visit dates and email the VCC via org box

  • Identity proofing and vetting is still accomplished manually by Security Forces personnel (CVIA/Pass and Registration)
  • After a satisfactory background check is complete, Pass and Registration will email the sponsor that their guest has been approved and may proceed to the installation gate for issuance of the visitors pass.

The attached documents will explain the process further. Please contact Pass and Registration at 634-3128 with any questions or concerns.
