Visitor Request

All visitors will be required to present a valid government issued, picture ID upon entry at the NRO Visitor Center. This ID may be in the form of a Driver’s License, U.S. Passport, or IC Badge. Access is denied without a valid picture ID.

The NRO will be managing the clearance process. The NRO’s Access Control Branch will create a visit request and verify clearances. If your clearances cannot be verified, the conference POC will notify you for verification to be sent to the NRO Access Control Branch. Please note: you are not required to send clearance verification to the NRO directly unless directed by the conference POC at which time instructions will be given.

This conference will be held at the TS//SI/TK//NOFORN level. All attendees must hold a valid SCI clearance at the TS//SI/TK//NOFORN level and be a U.S. Citizen. Exhibitors do not need to have a clearance, as their visit request will be unclassified.
