What you must bring

User Entry Pass

A User Entry Pass* is provided to approved users who have scheduled visits and have completed their Site Access Training.  Approximately 7 days before your scheduled visit, you will receive an email from ORNL with an attached User Entry Pass, which you should print and bring with you.  The Pass is beneficial for expediting your entry through security onto the ORNL site and for assistance at the Visitor Center.

* If you are unable to print your User Entry Pass or forget to bring it, you can still access the ORNL site after the security staff confirms your approval for access.

Photo identification

Effective March 30, 2015, ORNL will/has become fully compliant with the REAL ID Act. This Act requires that anyone accessing a Federal Facility, which ORNL is, must present a compliant form of identification. If you are from one of the noncompliant states, you will need to provide another form of approved identification. Here is a list of acceptable identification if you are from one of these states. You will not be allowed entry to any ORNL facility unless you have a form of compliant identification as listed here.

Non-US citizens must bring their valid original passport and Visa, including I-20 document, if applicable.
