  • Gate entrance/access to US military installations in Korea

    All visiting personnel active duty and retired, DoD civilians can gain access to the installations by showing their DoD identification cards.

    If the visiting personnel active duty and retired, DoD civilians want to invite/escort non-DoD personnel onto a US military installation in Korea, it is a requirement to be registered in the US military installations’ Biometrics Identification Detection System, referred to as BIDS Installation Access System. FYI, for Yongsan Army Installation, non-DOD personnel are permitted to remain on post up to 24 hours. Once the visiting personnel active duty and retired, DoD civilians are registered in BIDS they can sign on non-DOD personnel. They must meet the non-DOD personnel at the installation gate and the guest must return to the registered gate prior to the 24-hour time frame. At that time, the guest will have to be registered "off the installation" and can be re-registered "on the installation" for an additional 24 hours. This procedure must be done each day during your stay in the hotel.

  • What is BIDS?

    Biometrics Identification Detection System, referred to as BIDS Installation Access System. DoD personnel must register “in person” at the BIDS offices. The procedure is to input the DoD sponsor's data and record the thumbprint into the BIDS electronic system.

    BIDS registration is located:

    *1st Replacement Center (BLDG. 4034) ID Card Issue point , across the hotel 's parking lot. The office is open Monday - Friday from 0900 - 1600.

    *Pass & ID, Provost Marshal’s Office (BLDG. 1230), at Camp Kim near Yongsan Army Installation. The office is open Monday - Friday from 0830 - 1600, except for Thursdays 1200-1600.

    If you cannot arrive during the BIDS office hours & you wish to invite/escort in a non-DOD individual: When you arrive at the US installation gate, you must advise the MP Desk Sergeant of your late arrival and they can implement a DOD Sponsor Escort Exception to Policy. (Please note that this process requires the MP Desk Sergeant to contact the installation commander/"on call" representative directly for the Exception to Policy.)
