All non-DoD ID card holders who request access to a U.S. military installation are required to either be escorted by a DoD ID card holder at all times, be on an approved access roster or be issued an installation pass.
- All installation passes must be requested on an Army Europe Form 190-16A by a DoD ID card holder appointed in writing as an authorized sponsor.
- All pass requests need to be submitted to the appropriate IACS office distro list (Ansbach or Illesheim) via encrypted email from an official email address (eu.dodea.edu, .gov, .mil, .NATO). Authorized sponsors unable to send encrypted emails may use the AMRDEC SAFE site to submit application packets.
- The application packet needs to include the application and all supporting documents.
- Packets must be received a minimum of three business days prior to the applicant coming by the IACS office.
The U.S. Army has 19 separate applicant categories for installation passes. Please contact your nearest IACS office for information on what documents are required for each category.
Applicants will need to bring the following original documents with them to the IACS office when they come in to be issued a pass: Ausweis or passport, PGCC (Führungszeugnis), residency permit (if required). Any documents that are not in English or German must be translated into English and notarized as a true translation.
