Planning a Visit to Picatinny
Please be aware that all visitors, including those escorted by Government or authorized Contractor personnel (no Foreign Nationals) with valid Picatinny I.D., are required to process in through the Visitor Control Center located at the Main Gate. You will be issued a pass and MUST have some form of valid government issued photo ID, i.e. Driver's License, Passport, etc. This policy includes all vehicle passengers.
In addition, individuals operating vehicles must provide proof of license, registration and insurance. All vehicles entering the gate are subject to a full search for prohibited items and contraband. Prohibited items include: weapons, ammunition, drugs, alcoholic beverages, photographic equipment, and recording devices. These items will be confiscated and violators cited by the Picatinny Police.
All delivery vehicles must process in through the Truck Gate upon receiving their visitor registration document/pass.
Picatinny personnel expecting visitors (Sponsors) are required to complete a Visitor Registration Form online. The sponsor is then responsible for the conduct and accountability of their guests throughout the duration of the visit. Duration of passes should only be granted for the period of time necessary for the purpose of the visit. All Foreign National visitors must meet additional visitor requirements and be escorted at all times by a U.S. government employee.
In order to plan ahead and avoid a longer wait in the visitor control center, please remind your contact to submit the required documentation to the Visitor Control Center prior to your visit. The form will require your schedule for the day, the location(s) you will be visiting and the name of your Picatinny sponsor(s). If you are authorized to drive on post, you will need to supply the make, model and license plate number of your vehicle or let your contact know that it is a rental.
Please remember that Picatinny is a military installation, controlled and operated by government personnel trained in safe testing procedures. These guidelines are intended for your safety and operational security.
We want your visit to be productive and pleasant. Please bring any problems, questions, or concerns to our attention. Questions or comments may be directed to Director of Operations, (973) 724-4038.
