Installation Access Requirements:

All privately-owned vehicles driven onto Fort Meade are required to be licensed, registered, inspected and insured according to state and local laws. Vehicles entering the post are subject to a 100 percent identification check and all vehicles are subject to inspection by Fort Meade Force Protection personnel.

To enter the installation, Department of Defense ID card holders are only required to show a Common Access Card (CAC), military identification card, or other approved access credential issued by the Fort Meade Visitor Center. Visitors who do not have a CAC, military ID or approved access credential must access the installation using the main gate at Reece Road and Maryland State Route 175. Reece Road is the only visitor access gate to Fort Meade; follow signs to the vehicle inspection station. All other gates are designated for Department of Defense identification card holders or other approved access credentials.

Those who are not DoD affiliated personnel must have a valid purpose for entering the installation. To avoid delays visitors should be accompanied by a DoD ID cardholder (generally a service member or federal employee). At a minimum, visitors should be prepared to present two forms of identification with one being a driver's license if operating a motor vehicle when entering the installation. Click here for a fillable form for individual access.

After getting a visitors pass, visitors should then proceed directly to the Vehicle Inspection Station when entering the installation. To get to the Vehicle Inspection Station, take the first right after entering at Reece Road, follow the road through the parking lot and to the adjoining perimeter road to the Vehicle Inspection Station. Visitors (non-DoD ID card holders) that attempt to enter any other gate will be redirected to Reece Road.

Contractors, Personal Service Providers, volunteers, and other individuals conducting legitimate business on the installation may receive an extended access credential and Vehicle Pass when properly sponsored by an authorized individual, organization or resident. Individuals requiring access in excess of 30 days, to include contractors or other service providers, must submit appropriate documents to the Visitor Center through their sponsoring organization or activity.
