ACCESS CONTROL DOCUMENTS CAN BE FOUND IN THE GARRISON PUBLICATIONS TAB
All visitors to White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) must have a valid need for access and a White Sands Missile Range Point of Contact (POC) or sponsor for that visitor. The exception for this is to visit the Missile Park and Museum (in this case access will be restricted to the area of the museum).
When visitors arrive they must have a valid state or federal ID, a WSMR sponsor or POC and provide that information to the access clerks or guards at the gate.
Entry Requirements for person without a Valid DOD ID Card requesting unescorted access:
The visitor's POC/sponsor will be contacted and the visitor will be ran through the NCIC-III database and a determination will be made for acceptability.
Once acceptability has been determined a Temporary Gate Pass will be issued for short visits not to exceed 14 days.
For visits that exceed this time frame the visitors MUST have a SPONSOR and complete the Form 5000. The Form 5000 contains personal information and it must be protected. DO NOT transmit over open e-mail. Protect the document with a password and send the two forms over separate e-mails or provide information to the POC/Sponsor who will submit with an encrypted email" and 102 for Main Post and/or Up Range.
A pass completed by this method can be up to 365 days from the completed NCIC-III Check. (Done with the Form 5000 or a Temporary Gate Pass). The request forms must be submitted by the POC/Sponsor and not the requestor.
Once acceptability has been determined, the Form 102 will be returned to the POC/Sponsor and the visitor will be granted a temporary pass to go to the WSMR access badge processing center.
