What is IACS?
Installation Access Control System (IACS) is a personnel access verification system that connects a central database to all Installation Access Control Offices (IACOs), Central Processing Facilities, MP Stations, and access control points in USAREUR. It also provides an installation pass for anyone with authorized access.
How do I get registered in IACS?
What do I have to do to out process IACS?
Bring Orders, CAC card and Out-processing checklist.
Once I clear the IACS office, will I be able to get on base?
Yes, the IACS Office (BLDG 383) can be one of the first stops in clearing. When PCSing, the IACS Registrar will set the gate access to expire 10 days after the departure date. For an ETS, this is not always guaranteed because a new CAC will be issued. The IACS office will register the new CAC for the expiration date listed on the card or the departure date, whichever is earlier.
Do my family members need to be with me when I clear?
No, the Service Member can clear for the whole family.
I am just visiting and hold a DOD ID Card, can I access the installation?
Most DOD ID card holders may come into one of our two IACS offices and register for the length of their visit not to exceed 90 days from the arrival date to the Schengen Zone. Registrars will accept the stamp on the passport and/or flight itinerary as record of entry date. Some DOD ID cards are not eligible (please call one of the numbers above for more information). To register, bring passport and CAC/dependent ID, the local lodging address and a local phone number.
Who has 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 IACS and will be checked by a guard in the IACS when the DOD ID Cardholder tries to use his or her 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.
How do I obtain a pass for a Family Member/Special Guest?
Notify the checkpoint gate guard that there is a guest in the vehicle and be prepared to pull over in the side parking lot. Once arrived at the check point office the guest will need to present their passport or personal ID (for example, German Personalausweis, Belgian Identity Card, Italian carta d’identita). The DOD ID cardholder will need to present their CAC/Dependent ID. The gate will keep the guest’s passport and issue them a visitor’s badge that will be valid for post access until 2359 of the issuing date. The guest must be accompanied at all times by the sponsor who signed him/her in at the gate. Before leaving the installation, check-out the guest at the gate office, return the badge, and retrieve the guest’s passport.
How do I get an Extended Pass?
How do guests get on an Access Roster?
- A DOD ID cardholder wanted to host a surprise birthday party at a Family and morale, welfare, and recreating facility and the guest list includes 10 people who have no means of access. An access roster is appropriate because the party is a single event and site-specific.
- A sanctioned private organization (for example, dance club) meets Wednesday evening at 1900 and several of the members are LN employees. An access roster is not appropriate because the meetings are a recurring event. The participants must be signed in each week or issued an installation pass.
