The requirement for UNESCORTED base access for all non-DoD affiliated workers/guests is to complete and submit SECNAV Form 5512/1 and JB2 Form 0-180 via their sponsor. The SECNAV 5512/1 form is the sole means to initiate background checks and authorizes the Department of Navy (DoN) to obtain PII for vetting purposes prior to authorizing unescorted installation access. This policy is effective for all events, to include one-time events such as weddings, retirement ceremonies, Public Affairs functions, changes of command, special events, job applicants, and for vendors/service providers not enrolled in the Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS), Transportation Workers Identification Card (TWIC) holders without a Merchant Mariner Credential (MMC), and Civilian Retiree Card Holders prior to Personnel Support Detachment re-issuance of expired credentials.


IAW with CNIC M-5530.2, Trusted Traveler procedures may be used during Force Protection Conditions (FPCON) NORMAL through BRAVO. The Joint Base Commander (JBC) has the authority to suspend the Trusted Traveler Program when needed. It allows uniformed service members or DoD employees with a valid CAC, retired uniform service members, or adult family members with a valid DoD identification credential to present identification for verification while simultaneously vouching for family or guests that are traveling with the sponsor as vehicle occupants. Trusted Traveler for JBPHH does not automatically transfer to other installations.

The Trusted Traveler program is NOT applicable for those individuals who are requesting access to conduct business as a contractor, volunteer, subcontractor, service provider, vender vendor or supplier.

Trusted Traveler does not apply at the following locations: West Loch NAVMAG, Lualualei NAVMAG, or Red Hill.
