There is a wide variety of reasons to come to visit Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. Some of the more common reasons people want to visit JBER are to visit relatives or because they were stationed here in the past and want to revisit old memories. Although most visitors have a personal connection to JBER, the public can also visit JBER. A visit to JBER during a base tour, may give taxpayers the opportunity to see how their money is being spent, as well as, present a chance for prospective service members to catch a glimpse of a future with the military.

The 673d Communications Squadron and the 673d Security Forces Squadron have developed a Base Access Intelink website for use by all DoD CAC holders.
This site allows DoD CAC holders to access several commonly sought after base access forms and more importantly allows those users to sponsor visitors onto JBER from a CAC enabled computer. DoD CAC holders may utilize the website to sponsor on up to nine US citizens, for up to 60 days, no more than 72 hours in advance of their arrival to JBER.
The intent of the site is to streamline the process for getting visitors onto the installation for both operational and personal needs.
You can review the quick step by step process that you will encounter when you access the site here.
Login with your CAC at the following site:
