Classified visits to NPS
Incoming clearances should be submitted using the visits notification section in JPAS (Joint Personnel Adjudication System). SCI clearances should be submitted under SMO code 622713 and collateral clearances under SMO code 622715. Please contact your Security Manager for assistance in submitting the visit request.
If the incoming visitor's security office does not have access to JPAS, then SCI clearances should be sent by the SSO via message to SSO NAVPGSCOL or faxed to (831) 656-3437 or DSN 756-3437.
Collateral clearances may be faxed by the Security Manager, using appropriate security clearance forms to either (831) 656-3437 or 656-2350.
- DO NOT INCLUDE SSN's in faxed visit requests
- PLEASE ENSURE THAT THE POINT OF CONTACT INFORMATION IS FOR THE PERSON OR ORGANIZATION TO BE VISITED AND NOT THE SECURITY MANAGER
The Trusted Agent is in effect. United States Military Active and their dependents, Retired military and Civil Service members who possess valid DoD identification cards are Trusted Agents.
A Trusted Agent and all occupants in the Trusted Agent's automobile can enter the base if the Trusted Agent shows a valid DoD ID card at an NPS gate or if they escort them via a pedestrian gate. Occupants in a Trusted Agent's automobile or walking aboard with a Trusted Agent do not have to sign in at the gate, but must stay with their sponsor at all times.
All other gate access policies remain in place. Again, Trusted Agent applies only to U.S. Active duty and their dependents/retired military, Reservist and Civil service employees with U.S. DoD ID cards. Contractors and international members of the NPS community are not Trusted Agents and will continue to use established gate access procedures to accommodate visitors.
NOTE: The U.S. Military or U.S. Civil Service member is to escort visitors/guests at all times until the visitors/guests leave the installation.
The pedestrian turnstile is open 24 hours a day. The turnstile requires a current TATUS card or Common Access Card programmed with TATUS. TATUS cards and reprogramming of CAC cards to include TATUS are available at the Pass and ID office. You must first complete the TATUS Application form and have it electronically signed by your government supervisor and sent to email@example.com.
