Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune has implemented the Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS) to facilitate a secure and efficient means of accessing the installation. DBIDS ensures the protection of active duty personnel, family members and civilian employees while allowing controlled access to authorized patrons, contractors, vendors and sponsored visitors.
DoD ID card holders will automatically be enrolled in DBIDS after their first ID scan upon entering Camp Lejeune. DoD ID card holders may also sponsor visitors as outlined in the link below.
All unescorted visitors are required to obtain a DBIDS card or temporary paper pass at the Camp Lejeune Visitor Center or the Contractor Vetting Office in order to gain authorized access to Camp Lejeune. Unescorted visitors must be sponsored or on official business. Visitors will have their identity validated and be issued an appropriate DBIDS credential at no cost. Visitors must obtain a DBIDS credential at the Camp Lejeune Visitor Center (Bldg. TT-13). Contractors and vendors on official business must obtain a DBIDS credential at the Contractor Vetting Office (Bldg. 818).
DOD Civilian retirees: Please note the new requirements to access dod installations
Advancements in installation security access control systems and procedures, and the implementation of the REAL ID Act, will result in the termination of the DoD Civilian Retiree ID Card. Previously issued cards will remain valid through Aug. 31, 2023.
