There are two types of passes: Unsponsored and Sponsored:
Unsponsored passes are for 90 days and can be renewed. This pass is valid through Tulley or Lieber Gate.
Sponsored passes are valid up to one year and can be renewed. This pass is valid through all gates except Farrar Gate. To receive a sponsored pass, you must be sponsored by someone that works or lives on Fort Belvoir. Sponsors working on the installation must be DoD Civilian or Active Duty U.S. Military. Sponsors living on the installation must be Active Duty Military or Dependent 18 years of age or older. All contractors, to include CAC card with the green strip, cannot be a sponsor.
The application must be completed fully and legible. Forms that are illegible or not fully completed cannot be processed. Please note, the applicant's Social Security Number (SSN) is required. Visitors who use their state-issued driver's license or state-issued identification card information on their application can apply for the expedited service.

What if I do not want to email it? The applicant can hand-carry in the completed application or they can complete an application in-office on arrival. Hand-carrying in the completed form will save the applicant a couple of minutes when processing for their pass.
Once your completed form is emailed and received by the Visitor Center, you will receive an automatic email reply stating your pass will be ready for pick up in 72 business hours. A confirmation email informing you that the pass is ready will not be provided. To pick up the pass the applicant will need to go inside the Visitor Center and present their ID. A secondary ID may be required. Please click on the Real ID Act, which explains if a secondary ID is needed. If you do not have a secondary ID, you will not receive a pass. If you arrive after-hours you will not be able to pick up your Expedited Pass. You can still access the installation by driving through the commercial canopy at Tulley Gate. (please note, only the applicant can pick up their own pass)
