New Mexico Badging Information

Access to Kirtland Air Force Base:

If you do possess a DOE HSPD-12 credential, you must register in a KAFB DBIDS office, information below. If you do not possess a DOE HSPD-12 badge, we will add you to an Entry Access List for the week of the meeting. DBIDS is not required for visitors on the Entry Access List. When you arrive, you must provide a valid form of ID, Vehicle Registration, and proof of Insurance to get onto KAFB. Please bring one of the Acceptable Forms of Identification.


At the time of visit to a DBIDS office (called visitor centers - see below for locations and hours of operation), the following must also be provided:

  • Driver's License (Real ID)
  • Registration
  • Proof of Insurance
  • (If the vehicle is a rental car) Rental agreement or receipt

Note: You can verify whether your HSPD-12 federal credential is registered in DBIDS by visiting a DBIDS office. DBIDS is an Air Force requirement and status of DBIDS registration cannot be checked at the SNL Badge Office (1st floor of IPOC).
