> Defense Biometric Identification System

DBIDS, a personnel access verification system, is a central network database linked to all Installation Access Control Offices, selected Central Processing Facilities, MP Stations, and Access Control Points in USAREUR and USAFE (Germany only), and will produce an installation pass for those authorized access.

> DBIDS Requirements

All DOD ID cardholders will be automatically registered into DBIDS at the gate. 
Exceptions include Retirees and Blue Stripe CAC Holders. These groups will need to register for DBIDS at the Installation Access Control Office (IACO).
DOD ID cardholders who are on TDY (on orders) in Europe: These individuals will automatically be registered in DBIDS at the gate. 
Active duty military personnel and retirees who are visiting Europe: These individuals may be registered in the DBIDS for the duration of their visit, up to 90 days, or the date specified by the host nation visa.
DOD ID cardholders (including minors) who are EU citizens but are not command-sponsored (no SOFA status): These individuals may be registered in the DBIDS for the duration of their stay or the expiration date of their ID card, whichever is earlier. 

Visitors: Bringing Guests On Post

Policies & Procedures

> Sign-In Privileges

DOD ID cardholders who are 18 years old or older and military spouses under the age of 18 have sign-in privileges. If this privilege has been suspended, it is documented in the DBIDS and will be checked by a guard in the DBIDS when the DOD ID cardholder tries to use his or her sign-in privileges.
Except for individuals in the NATO Member and Department of State and American Embassy Personnel categories, installation-pass holders are not granted sign-in privileges unless authorized by the sponsoring organization. Sign-in privileges are documented on the front of all installation passes with any qualifications (for example, contractors and vendors only) listed in the remarks block on the back. The installation-pass holder must be at least 18 years old.

> Restrictions

Temporary installation-pass holders are not authorized sign-in privileges.
Sign-in privileges are limited to signing in four individuals and their vehicles at any one time.
Individuals who require recurring access will not use sign-in procedures to avoid the installation-pass application process or access-roster requirements.

> Exceptions

If visiting family members want an Exception to Policy for their duration of stay, the sponsor must use their government e-mail to contact Physical Security at (do not use a personal e-mail address for this request).

The e-mail must include:

  • Vistor's Full Name
  • Relationship to Sponsor
  • Duration of Stay

> Sponsor Responsibilities

The sponsor will monitor the activity of individual they sign-in and be responsible for their conduct. Failure to follow sign-in policy and procedures may result in the withdrawal of sign-in privileges.
