Visitors entering Fort Belvoir Access Control Points, and ACPs at other military installations, are subject to increased security as a part of additional force protection measures implemented by U.S. Northern Command.

Drivers should allow more time to be granted access to military installations, be prepared and adjust travel times. To minimize delays, valid ID card holders should use designated DoD lanes to access Belvoir.

Commercial vehicles must use Lieber Gate. Non-DoD ID card holders driving private vehicles may enter via Tulley Gate, weekdays, 6 a.m.-6 p.m., and go to the Visitor Center. The Tully Gate is closed on weekends and holidays. After hours and on weekends, visitors may gain entry to the installation by getting cleared by Fort Belvoir Force Protection security personnel at Lieber.

All visitors to Belvoir must be prepared to show valid identification to enter the installation. Identification can include a DoD Common Access Card, or CAC; military retiree ID; DoD family member ID; or Fort Belvoir visitor’s pass.

Travelers and passengers without a valid ID card listed above must go to the Visitor Center at Tully Gate, weekdays, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. to get a visitor’s pass. After hours vetting will be completed at Lieber Gate. All visitors, 16 and older, must have a valid driver’s license, state ID card, or U.S. passport to get a Belvoir visitor’s pass.

Non-Real ID-compliant driver’s licenses and ID cards marked, “Not for Federal Identification, Not for Federal Purposes, or Federal Limits May Apply” cannot be accepted as a sole source of identity and a second form of ID is needed. Acceptable forms of secondary identification are: valid U.S. passport, U.S. passport card, and original birth certificates. Social Security Cards are not valid, accepted IDs.
