DBIDS is the new base access system that focuses on access control procedures to ensure the protection of Active Duty personnel, residents, and civilian employees. These policies are intended to help Marines accomplish their mission and keep families aboard Camp Pendleton safe while allowing access to authorized personnel, contractor & vendors, and sponsored visitors.

By requesting base access, you are agreeing to a background check and having your photo and fingerprint taken. Not all requests will be granted. Criminal activity will revoke base access, even after access has been granted.
