All guests (scheduled and unscheduled) are required to sign in at the security desk upon arrival, stating their citizenship and birth country. Some guests, however, require special processing. Under DOE's guidance governing unclassified foreign visits and assignments (DOE O 142.3), all DOE facilities are required to document the visits and assignments of individuals who are citizens of, were born in, or are affiliated with sensitive or terrorist-sponsoring countries. Individuals from non-sensitive countries are also included in this requirement if they require access to a Property Protection Area (PPA). It is important then, to keep this in mind when preparing logistics for any visitors to our site.

Note: Requirements under DOE O 142.3 do not include those born in sensitive or terrorist-sponsoring countries who have become U.S. citizens. It does, however, cover immigrants or "green card" holders.
