Guam – Getting into Big Navy as a guest just got a whole lot harder.
Naval Base Guam has announced that the “Trusted Traveler Program” will be suspended starting on August 4. The program allowed authorized Department of Defense identification cardholders to sponsor guests onto Naval Base Guam installations without having to obtain a guest pass at the Visitor’s Control Center.
According to a release from NBG, this change in policy is not in response to any incident or security threat and it does not mean that guests will not be allowed. Instead, it is to better align base access policies and procedures at military installations islandwide while helping to maintain safety and security.
As of August 4, in order to be granted a pass to enter a Naval base installation, a guest must be sponsored by an authorized military cardholder, present a valid form of identification and complete a background check at the Visitor’s Control Center.
This Saturday the VCC will be open to issue passes from 7 am to 1 pm.
