Livermore Site Access
LLNL is a national security laboratory with regulated entry. Visitors must make prior arrangements and pick up a badge at the Westgate Badge Office (located off Vasco Road in Livermore) in order to gain admittance to the Laboratory. To obtain a badge, visitors must supply Personally Identifiable Information such as a Social Security number and an approved form of identification such as a passport or driver’s license. All National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) facilities have implemented the Department of Homeland Security’s REAL ID Act requirements for allowable forms of identification for personnel requiring site access. Only driver’s licenses from states whose driver’s licenses are compliant with REAL ID requirements will be allowed as a primary form of identification for LLNL site access. Contact the User Office for specific details. Non-U.S. citizens must present a Permanent Resident Card or valid passport plus visa and all accompanying documentation. All visitors must wear the badge conspicuously, between their neck and waist, at all times while at LLNL.
Non-U.S. government owned computers and electronic devices are permitted in Property Protected Areas and Limited Areas unless otherwise posted. Personally owned electronic devices are prohibited from being connected to LLNL equipment without approval from the Computer Security Program. Bluetooth and wireless headsets are not permitted in Limited Area buildings. Non-U.S. government owned cameras and recording devices may be brought on site but may not be used, including the function in a cell phone or other devices, without a Controlled Items Permit issued by the LLNL Security Organization. More information on LLNL’s policies for bringing restricted and controlled items onto the site is available on LLNL’s website: https://www.llnl.gov/about/visiting
