Due to high security measures, Fort McNair follows the MDW protocol for access to the Installation. If you do NOT have a military or federal government identification card you MUST complete this form either ahead of time or at the Visitors Gate to access the Officers Club. You can complete pages 1 and 2 and indicate the sponsor as the Ft. McNair Officers Club, Jamey Westerman at 202-484-5800. You may contact her for additional information if needed. Please arrive 1/2 hour to 45 minutes in advance to complete the process and get your visitors parking pass.


More information about these enhanced access control procedures can be found on the Joint Base Meyer-Henderson Hall website.


A frequently asked question:
As a non-DoD-affiliated visitor, what information do I need to pre-register/register?
You will need to present a valid driver’s license or other valid government identification and a completed request for access to Ft. Meyer. At the Visitor Control Center (VCC), you will have your photo taken, submit a fingerprint and have a National Criminal Information Center interstate identification Index (NCIC-III) criminal history record check conducted by one of the VCC registrars.


Important: As detailed in the Real ID Act of 2005, driver’s licenses and identification cards from Illinois, Missouri, Minnesota, Washington and the territory of American Samoa currently do not meet federal regulations and cannot be used as primary forms of ID for base access. If you have an Enhanced Driver’s License (EDL) from Minnesota or Washington, this type of drivers license is an acceptable form of ID. Please check to see if your license denotes whether it is an EDL.
