Entering JBSA

JBSA-FORT SAM HOUSTON VISITOR CONTROL CENTER CONSTRUCTION
The visitor control centers at Walters Street and BAMC are slated to undergo construction to install ballistic glass on the customer service countertops from May 20 to Nov. 28. These projects will be offset, with Walters VCC occurring first. During installation, services will be moved to a temporary trailer located outside of each facility. Service hours will not be affected, however this is expected to cause delays in customer service wait times, so please plan accordingly. The VCC supervisors will monitor wait times and, if necessary, divert customers to alternate locations. Walters VCC: May 20, through mid-August; currently, wait times average between 15 to 30 minutes, with graduation days extending to an hour. Please plan for longer wait time during this construction. BAMC VCC: mid-August through Nov. 28; currently, wait times vary between 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. Please plan for longer wait times during this construction.

TRUSTED TRAVELER POLICY REMINDER
Currently, installation entry control points are operating under normal entry and visitor procedures. At least one Department of Defense ID card will be checked per vehicle, unless after 10 p.m.

Between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., all vehicle passengers must have Department of Defense identification or a Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS) identification card or pass. 

Security Forces may check any and all ID cards at any time. Personnel with authorized credentials allowing them escort privileges may escort non-ID card-holding personnel in their same vehicle between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m. 

Escorts are required to remain with and maintain control of their visitors at all times while on the installation. A visitor pass is required if the escorting individual is not going to remain with the visitor at all times.
