Base Access

The requirement for UNESCORTED base access for all non-DOD affiliated workers/guests is to complete and submit SECNAV Form 5512/1 and JB2 0-180 via their sponsor. This policy is effective for all events, to include one-time events such as weddings, retirement ceremonies, PAO functions, changes of command, special events, job applicants, and for vendors/service providers not enrolled in the Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS), Transportation Workers Identification Card (TWIC) holders without a Merchant Mariner Credential (MMC), and Civilian Retiree Card Holders prior to PSD re-issuance of expired credentials.

JBPHHINST 5510.1B, JBPHH Base Access Regulation, can be found at here.

Trusted Traveler

Trusted Traveler procedures may be used during FPCONs NORMAL, ALPHA as local security conditions permit. It allows uniformed service members or DoD employees with a valid CAC, retired uniform service members, or adult family members with a valid DoD identification credential to present identification for verification while simultaneously vouching for family or guests that are traveling with the sponsor as vehicle occupants. Trusted Traveler for JBPHH does not automatically transfer to other installations.

The Trusted Traveler program is NOT applicable for those individuals who are requesting access to conduct business as a contractor, volunteer, subcontractor, service provider, vender or supplier.

Trusted Traveler does not apply at the following locations: West Loch NAVMAG, Lualualei NAVMAG, or Red Hill.

Foreign Nationals are NOT authorized to be brought on the installation via Trusted Traveler.

Trusted Traveler guests are considered ESCORTED unless the occupants have a valid credential for entry and must remain with the sponsor at all times until they depart from the base.

The number of personnel a Trusted Traveler is authorized to vouch/sponsor is limited to the number of individuals legally seated in the vehicle in which the Trusted Traveler is located, not to exceed (5) personnel maximum. Trusted Traveler hours may change at the discretion of the Joint Base Commander (JBC) or designee at any time without prior notification.

Collection of Biometrics Data from Foreign Nationals

Effective November 2017, biometrics data will be collected from Foreign Nationals (FN) seeking access to JBPHH. This SOP applies to all military and civilian personnel assigned to the JBPHH Security Department and PMRF. You will need to escort your FN to the Nimitz Visitor Center for enrollment. You will not receive your Foreign National Visitor (FNV) pass without complete enrollment of guest(s). It is suggested that you stop by the visitor center before the start date of your request. We understand some FN’s will be flying in and will not be able to complete same until arrival. The Nimitz Visitor Center is open 24/7 and a clerk will always be able to assist in case your visitor arrives after regular duty hours. Your purpose of visit will be for a biometric enrollment for your FN guest. After enrollment is complete if your request has been approved you will be handed your FNV pass. If your request has not been approved, you will be notified via email as soon as it is returned to this office.
