1794

Guam -Naval Base Guam (NBG) will open a new Visitor Control Center (VCC) for visitors to obtain base clearance on June 1st at 6 am.

The VCC is the new name for what has been known as the Pass & ID (P&ID) building, which will cease offering services at noon on May 31st.

Commanding Officer, Capt. Richard Wood, will host an official opening at 9 a.m. on June 1st. According to CAPT Wood, the new center is more spacious than the current P&ID building. “Current operational needs have outgrown our old Pass and ID office and this new Center will allow us to be more efficient in processing base access requests,” said Wood.

The interior of the new VCC is twice the size of the P&ID building with a waiting area with chairs and a big screen television.  

The location of the new Visitor Control Center is outside the main Naval base front gate and on the backside of the Navy Housing Office building (NHO). The NHO is north of and next to the National Park Service Visitor Center. Signs are posted to clearly mark directions to the VCC.

The service hours remain the same:

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Thursday 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Friday 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Closed weekends and holidays.

The Department of Defense security clearance procedures remain the same. To obtain a base pass a visitor must arrive at the VCC with their sponsor and present valid photo identification.

n order to drive their vehicle onto the base they must provide a valid driver’s license and current vehicle registration and insurance. The sponsor must escort the visitor on base at all times. On week-ends passes can be obtained from the front gate sentry.

Schools, organizations and historical/cultural groups may request information regarding group base access a minimum of 3 weeks prior to their desired dates from the NBG Public Affairs Office at Annette.donner@fe.navy.mil.
