NEW: Trusted Traveler Program 


Fort Belvoir’s Trusted Traveler Program is easing the 100% ID check policy at the installation’s gates. The new policy makes it easier for those arriving with guests, and other CAC ID cardholders.

The Trusted Traveler Program allows all DoD identification cardholders access to the installation and allows authorized persons to vouch for others in their vehicle. 

That allows the following to vouch for others in their vehicle:

  • DoD employees
  • Active-duty military
  • DoD Family members 18 and older
  • Retired service members

Those not permitted to be a trusted traveler include:

  • Contractors
  • Foreign Visitors
  • Sponsored Pass holders
  • Veterans ID card holders

Foreign Visitors:

Foreign visitors that are accessing the post for official business must be cleared through the Fort Belvoir DPTMS Security Office. Once cleared, they will send you a memorandum, which is considered the access pass.


Foreign visitors not accessing the post for business must process through the Visitor Center with a sponsor. Sponsors must possess a DoD Civilian CAC card, Active Duty or Retired Military ID Card, or Dependent ID Card 18 years of age or older.


Please note, foreign visitors must have a valid Homeland Security stamp in their passport. If there is no valid stamp, they will need to provide documents stating they are legally here in the United States. You can print off the required I094 Form here.


Foreign National workers and dependents:

Foreign Nationals who posses a DoD CAC (with a blue strip) or a foreign dependent military ID card will now have to provide a document from their U.S. Command stating why they are accessing Fort Belvoir.  If it is a one-day access for an appointment, a memorandum from the U.S. Command or and appointment letter/slip is sufficient. Their ID and memorandum will be verified and access will be granted.


If a Foreign National, who posses a DoD CAC (with a blue strip) or a foreign dependent military ID card, will be accessing the installation for an extended period of time, the document from their U.S. Command will need to state the reason for access and the duration of timeframe for repeated access. They must provide the document and military ID to the Visitor Center at Tulley Gate, where it will be verified. Their ID will then be registered in to the Automated Installation Entry System (AIE). This will allow the Foreign National to have unimpeded access at all of the gates for their future visits, until the expiration date on the memorandum from their U.S. Command.
