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 Form 0-180 via their sponsor. The SECNAV 5512/1 form is the sole means to initiate background checks and authorizes the DoN to obtain PII for vetting purposes prior to authorizing unescorted installation access. 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.


Trusted Traveler

IAW with CNIC M-5530.2, Trusted Traveler procedures may be used during Force Protection Conditions (FPCON) NORMAL through BRAVO. The Joint Base Commander (JBC) has the authority to suspend the Trusted Traveler Program when needed. 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 vendor 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.  Please see below on the Unofficial Foreign National Visitor Request process.

Trusted Traveler guests are considered ESCORTED 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 or designee at any time without prior notification.
