Visitor Control Center Procedures, for military members to sponsor friends and family members who are either U.S. or non-U.S. passport holders:
Military escorts for U.S. citizens must accompany their guests to the visitor control center located at Gate 7 (North Gate) and fill out an AF Form 75 for a three-day pass at maximum. All guests must have current passports and AF Form 75s on them at all times and remain with their escorts while on base.

If guests require longer than a three-day pass or are non-U.S. passport holders, the military escort must contact the Large Vehicle Inspection Station gate to receive the entry authority list template. The escort must fill out all personal information for him/herself and the guest on the EAL and provide in detail a full request and explanation. The EAL requires squadron commander signature. Once the EAL is routed, the military escort must turn it into LVIS gate personnel, who complete the routing process through the Italian air force and will inform denial or approval of requests once background checks are complete.
