Access to the installation is determined upon positive identification of an individual via a valid, unexpired, State or federally issued photo identification card and a valid DoD sponsor. All visitors entering Maxwell/Gunter AFB will be vetted via a background check through NCIC or ALACOP prior to being granted unescorted access via a DBIDS visitors Pass. If a visitor's criminal history presents outstanding warrants, violent, criminal offenses in their history or any felonies within a specified time frame, the determination for initial denial of entry will be made by Visitor Control Center (VCC) personnel/On-Duty Flight Chief. The sponsor may decline to obtain the visitor a pass and physically escort visitors onto the installation. The sponsor will be required to remain with the visitor throughout the duration of their stay and must escort their guest off the installation upon termination of the visit.
Please note, ALL Foreign National guests (Anyone without a United States State or Territory ID) are required to have a Foreign National Visit request submitted no later than three weeks prior to arrival, in order to facilitate the appropriate routing process. Request forms can be retrieved at Bldg. 518/VCC during duty hours.
Individuals requesting driving access to the installation will need to provide valid, unexpired, state or federal picture identification card, proof of current vehicle insurance and current registration.
For special events or large scale functions, such as birthday parties, retirements, promotions, etc. with more than six personnel, an Entry Authorization List must be hand carried to the Visitors Center. Requests must be submitted at least five duty days prior for any event smaller than 100 guests, and ten duty days prior for any event larger than 100 guests. The list must be typed, alphabetized by last name, and contain dates of birth and driver's license numbers and state of issue for all guests. All EAL's will be placed at the Maxwell Blvd Gate or Congressman Dickerson Gate, depending on the location of the event.
Special events require an entry authorization list and must contain a minimum of seven individuals. The DoD identification card holder will be sponsoring the individuals on base and be with them at all times.
