Base Access Procedures for MCB Quantico

All personnel requesting access to MCINCR-MCB Quantico must have an approved ID and be registered into the Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS), prior to being allowed access to the base. DoD issued ID cards (CAC - common access card & TESLIN - retiree, dependent, reserve, individual ready reserve) do Not require any action and will be automatically enrolled into DBIDS. All other approved ID’s require registering that ID credential into DBIDS at the visitor control center, or other approved site aboard the installation. There is no cost to the individual or company to register or obtain a base access credential.

Federal PIV Cards – DHS, FBI, DEA, State Department, etc.

Personal Identity Verification Interoperable (PIV-I) Cards – based on the same standards of vetting and issuance developed by the U.S. government for its employees, but it has been tailored for non-federal use.
