Rapid Gate

Vendors | Contractors | Sub-Contractors | Service Providers

There have been major changes to base access that directly impact vendors, contractors, sub-contractors and service providers who access Naval Base San Diego (NBSD).  These changes have been directed by Commander, Naval Installations Command (CNIC) via CNIC Memo 5530.  To be in compliance with these requirements, NBSD has aligned its procedures as shown below and explained here.  The new procedures are intended to increase NBSD's security posture and offer a solution that will provide streamlined access.

Three options for Base Access:

  • Naval Base San Diego One Day Pass - restricted and limited access.  Must be obtained daily at Pass & Decal.
