All guests to the NIST campus must have the following items available before entering the Visitor's Center: Photo I.D. (federally approved State issued driver's license*, Federal ID, or original passport) and Vehicle Registration Card.

NON U.S. CITIZENS PLEASE NOTE: All foreign national visitors who do not have permanent resident status must complete a NIST 1260 form for the purpose of a security check to enable access to the NIST campus. Due to rules for US Government facilities, registrations for non-US citizens cannot be processed after September 15. We regret the inconvenience, but NIST cannot make exceptions to these US Government rules.

Do not put anything after "FOLLOWING REQUIRED FOR LECTURERS ONLY". Fax the completed form to +1 301-948-2067 no later than Friday, September 15, 2017. Do NOT email the form. Since it has Personally Identifiable Information (PII), we must report it as a cybersecurity incident if we receive it in email. Authority to gather this information is derived from United States Department of Commerce Department Administrative Order (DAO) number 207-12.

*Visitor Access Requirement: Under the REAL ID Act of 2005, NIST can only accept a state-issued driver's license or identification card for access if issued by states that are REAL ID compliant or have an extension. For further details, please visit:
