Base Entry Procedure

  1. Pull into the base entrance and greet the guard on duty. Tell the guard that you wish to go to the Visitor Center at 27031 Telegraph Road, Stafford, VA.
  2. The guard will direct you. If you have a DoD-issued Identification card, you have prior clearance to go on base. Show it to the guard and ask for directions to the hotel.
  3. For those without a DoD ID card, go to the Visitor Center and tell them that you are here for the Ukrainian American Veterans convention for October 21, 22, 23, 24.
  4. They will ask for 2 pieces of identification:
    • Passport and a Social Security Card or Birth Certificate
    • REAL ID – Driver’s License with the gold star
  5. They will then ask you to fill out a Base Access Pass Registration Form (SECNAV 5512/1).
    Save time and fill this form out in advance. Make sure it is complete because they will verify it for security purposes. Your wait should be about 10 minutes.
  6. Another clerk will take your photo and fingerprints. They will then issue you a PASS, and you will be restricted to be at the event only. Be sure that you tell them you are staying at the Inns of the Corp Quantico Hotel. They will give a different PASS which will give you more flexibility on base.
  7. Go to the hotel and prepare for the convention.
  8. Call the Visitor Coordinator Office at 703-784-3023/3024 with any questions about the types of acceptable identification.
  9. Any further assistance needed, please call Bohdan Dudycz at 224-456-8944.
