Entering the Center

All visitors to NASA Ames Research Center must have a NASA Ames badged sponsor submit information regarding the visit to the Visitor Badging Office in order to get pre-approved for the visit. Upon arrival, visitors will need to go to the Visitor Badging Office to obtain a visitor badge.

The Visitor Badging Office is located at Building 26, which is just at the Main Gate. As you approach the Main Gate, you should be in the right-hand lane. The guard will direct you into the parking lot immediately adjacent to the gate. Please be sure to allow 15-20 minutes for processing.

You will need to provide the following:

  1. Valid picture identification (e.g., driver's license).
  2. International visitors will need valid picture identification, a passport, and a visa.
  3. If you plan to drive a car on base, you will need a valid driver's license and the car information (color, make, registration, and the license plate number). International visitors must be escorted to be able to drive on base.

Once you have a visitor badge, approach the main gate and show the guard your visitor badge and valid picture identification for entry into NASA Ames Research Center.
