Visitors conducting business in administrative and industrial areas of Rock Island Arsenal are to obtain and visibly display a visitor's badge. The term visitor applies to anyone who is not a current employee or contractor on the installation. Common Access Cards (CACs) may be utilized to access the installation; however, the CAC is not appropriate identification within administrative and industrial areas.
During normal duty hours, business visitors will enter the installation via the Moline Entrance and follow the signs to Building 23. To expedite the issuance of the badge, visitors should request pre-registration from their installation point of contact prior to arrival at Rock Island Arsenal. Business visitors not pre-registered will need to wait while security personnel attempt to obtain authorization from the point of contact to accept the visit and issue the badge.

The term FOREIGN business visitor applies to anyone who is not a US citizen, or is a US citizen but is representing a company that is foreign owned.

The purpose of the visit will determine the escort requirements.
