Visitors who have been issued a gate pass may enter the site for Laboratory-approved activities subject to the time and date restrictions on their gate pass. All visitors are required to present photo identification, such as a driver’s license or passport, to receive a gate pass. In addition, all those operating a motor vehicle on site must have a valid driver’s license. Passes must be worn in plain view, on the upper part of the body, at all times while on site.

Gate passes may be used only to gain site access for the person to whom the pass was issued.

Visitors, except Argonne Guest House or Lodging residents, may not authorize site access or issuance of a gate pass for any other person.
