Short and Long-term Parking Passes
The Base Security Office issues vehicle passes for all authorized personnel requiring routine access to and parking on Coast Guard Island (CGI). Decals are no longer issued.
All vehicles entering the Base that don't already have access must obtain a visitor's pass. Note: If you don't have a valid Military/Dependent/Civilian Common Access CAC you must be sponsored. Sponsors can make prior arrangements by notifying through email to security, of the visit and providing the visitor's name, date/time of arrival and destination. See below for sponsor's responsibilities.
**Beginning on May 3, 2023, a REAL ID driver’s license or identification card is required in order to access a military base, federal courthouses, and other secure federal locations. Information on how to obtain a REAL ID compliant identification card can be found on the DHS.gov website or click here.**
