*** Steps to Registering Weapons on JBER ***

Step 1: Pick up an AF Form 1314 (Weapons Registration) and a DD2760 (this is usually printed on the back of the AF Form 1314) from Base Access Office, Richardson VCC, or the Boniface VCC.

Step 2:   Fill out the AF Form 1314 and DD2760 in its entirety and sign in the appropriate areas.  Once the AF Form 1314 and DD2760 is completely filled out, the individual needs to have his Unit/Squadron/Company Commander or Weapons Designee sign the AF Form 1314 as well *Weapons will not be register without the Unit/Squadron/Company Commander or Weapons Designee's signature*.

Step 3: Bring the completed AF Form back to Base Access Office, Richardson VCC, or the Boniface VCC.  Weapons will then be registered and the individual will receive a copy of their AF Form 1314 that has been initialed, dated, and stamped by Reports and Analysis or Base Access.  As well, the individual will receive a 673 SFS Form 0107 with their weapons listed on the back and it will also be initialed, dated, and stamped by Base Access Office, Richardson VCC, or the Boniface VCC.

Any questions, please contact Base Access & VCCs at 552-5665, and follow prompts.

JBER Visitors

There are many reasons to visit Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson - to to visit relatives, to engage in recreation, or to relive old memories of being stationed here. Although most visitors have a personal connection to JBER, the public can also visit. A base tour may give taxpayers the opportunity to see how their money is being spent or prospective service members to chance to catch a glimpse of a future with the military.

Additional information pertaining to the REAL ID Act can be found at the Department of Homeland Security website.

Veteran Health Identification Cardholders

Veteran Health Identification Cardholders can shop at the Commissary and the Exchange, and eat at the dining facilities on base, but did you know that they also have access to FSS services? Fitness and community centers; Information, Tickets and Travel; the Polar Bowl; Permafrost Pub; Outdoor Recreation's facilities; the Arts and Auto Skills; Aero Club; the Trap and Skeet range; Hillberg Ski Area; RV storage lots; Otter Lake Recreation and Rentals, as well as the paintball course and Moose Run golf course are all available to registered veterans!

Revised procedures for Requesting Visitor Access

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 common base access forms and allows users to sponsor visitors onto JBER from a CAC-enabled computer. DoD CAC holders may 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 Intelink site streamlines the process for getting visitors onto the installation for both operational and personal needs. You can review the quick step-by-step process here. Login with your CAC at:

https://intelshare.intelink.gov/sites/jointbaseelmendorfrichardson/JBERSites/BaseAccess/SitePages/Home.aspx

Has your visitor ever had a pass for a DoD installation?
Have they been enrolled in the Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS)?

If not, please have them visit https://dbids-global.dmdc.mil/enroll#!/  to pre-enroll; this will significantly accelerate the process at the Visitor Control Center in having their pass produced.

 

Base Access Frequently Asked Questions

Collapse All Expand All

Unless the Foreign Visitor is a foreign exchange student or an identified Family Care Plan member, the sponsor/escort, or their alternate (if listed), must be a DoD ID card holder an accompany the Foreign Visitor at ALL times while they are on the installation. At NO time is the Foreign Visitor to be left alone, or with someone not listed on the Foreign Visitor Pass Worksheet.

EXCEPTION: If the Foreign Visitor is a foreign exchange student or an identified Family Care Plan member, the sponsor MUST complete the "NON OFFICIAL FOREIGN VISITOR WORKSHEET" at least 4 weeks prior to requested base access dates. The sponsor must provide the signed and completed Worksheet to the Base Access Office located in Rm 100, Bldg 8517 for coordination and processing. Once passport and visa information is validated, the Worksheet will be routed to the 673d Air Base Wing Commander for approval of unescorted access.  

The sponsor will need to complete a "LONG-TERM VISITOR PASS WORKSHEET". If the sponsor is an E-6/GS-06, or below, the Worksheet will need to be endorsed by their Commander or First Sergeant. If the sponsor resides in Privatized Housing, the Aurora Housing Office must endorse the Worksheet, approving your visitor. Visitors are subject to vetting through state and federal criminal databases before issuance of a DBIDS ID card or pass. The 673d Security Forces Squadron is in the process of phasing out the old form, without the Aurora Housing Office signature lines, and starting 1 May 2018, will not accept the " LONG-TERM VISITOR PASS WORKSHEET" without the Aurora Housing Endorsement.
Civilian companies must be sponsored by an on-base agency. The on-base agency's Security Manager will be the point of contact for the company and will be responsible for submitting the company's names to 673d Security Forces Squadron Base Access Office for processing. To contact on-base agencies, please call the Base Operator at 552-1110.
Visitor passes can be issued up to 60 days at the Boniface or Richardson Visitor Control Center. An example of reason would be visitors who have traveled from outside local area; presentation of travel itinerary is preferred.

No, anyone that is debarred from JBER cannot enter the base using Trusted Traveler unless approval from    the 673 Wing Commander has authorized it.
For any non-official event being held on JBER (i.e. wedding, birthday party) the sponsor, or organization representative, will need to complete an Event Worksheet, available at the Base Access Office or on the base SharePoint site (673 SFS/Documents/S5PD/Base Access Forms), to provide access to visitors, 16 years of age or older, that do not normally have access to the installation.  The sponsor will turn the Event Worksheet into the Base Access Office, Bldg 8517 People Center, or email it to 673sfs.identicard@us.af.mil.  Copies of approved Event Worksheets will be posted at entry gates.

Foreign visitors are defined as foreign nationals that are not coming on the installation in an official military capacity but being sponsored by a person affiliated to a DoD agency.

Visitors, accompanied by their sponsor, will request a pass from the Visitor Control Center. The sponsor and foreign visitor will provide a passport and a completed "NON OFFICIAL FOREIGN VISITOR WORKSHEET." Every foreign national, regardless of DCL status, is required to be vetted through OSI or “require further approval.” Requests should be submitted at least two weeks in advance.

Event Worksheets must be completed in their entirety. ALL requested information is required for guests 16 years of age and older; guests 15 years of age and younger are not required to be included on the guest list. All guests on the Event Worksheet will be required to present a state or federally issued photo identification card at time of entry. Foreign Visitors are not authorized to be on the Event Worksheet. They must be vetted by Base Access in person by the sponsor prior to entry, issued a DBIDS pass, and escorted onto the installation at all times. If alcohol will be served at your event, designated drivers need to be identified by marking the far right column of the guest list. NOTE: JBADD and Taxis do not qualify, individuals MUST be identified. Once the worksheet has been processed, any additional guests will need to be sponsored through either the Visitor Control Center.
For a complete listing of the DCL, report to the nearest Visitor Control Center. This list identifies countries that should not be immediately granted access in an unofficial capacity to a federal installation, IAW AFI 31-113, PACAF SUP, para 6.5.5.1. Examples of countries on this list include, but are not limited to: People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, Russia, Ukraine, and Cuba.

Unless the member is an immediate family member (parents, grandparents, siblings and siblings children under 21 years of age), the "NON OFFICIAL FOREIGN VISITOR WORKSHEET" must be submitted to the Base Access Office located in Rm 100, Bldg 8517 for coordination and processing at least 4 weeks prior to the requested base access dates. Once passport and visa information is validated, the Worksheet will be routed to the 673d Air Base Wing Commander for approval of escorted access. Immediate family members on the DCL will be processed IAW Foreign Visitor process, and will only need to report to the VCC for a pass.

NOTE: UNLESS AN EXCEPTION IS GRANTED BY THE 673D AIR BASE WING COMMANDER, NO MEMBER ON THE DCL WILL BE GRANTED UNESCORTED ACCESS TO THE INSTALLATION.
