Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall Access Control

This information is valid as of Thursday, January 16, 2020. It is subject to change at any time, and any changes made may or may not be announced to the general public prior to implementation. This information is not considered official, but is provided as a courtesy to patrons of The U.S. Army Band.

The Automated Installation Entry (AIE) system is currently being used at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall. AIE is the Army's electronic Physical Access Control System that increases security for Soldiers, Family Members, Department of Defense civilian workforce, military retirees, contractor employees and visitors by electronically vetting and validating an individual at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall's gates. The latest AIE brings capabilities to ease visitor access.

These capabilities allow visitors to obtain installation access via a web-registration or at a kiosk in the Visitor Center. It also has the ability for visitors to be vetted and registered at designated lanes at the gate. Please allow for extra time to arrive at your destination

Thanks to this new process, you may pre-register for the installation visitor pass online: All foreign nationals should download and fill out the following form: JBM-HH Installation Access Request. Non-military ID/CAC holders, please enter the installation via Hatfield Gate off of I-395 North, via 2nd St. So, at Rte. 27 (Washington Blvd). Security protocols will be enforced.
