PMO/Houseguest Privileges

Houseguest Privileges Requests

House Guests are individuals sixteen (16) or older, who are visiting military members (active duty) who reside or are utilizing base lodging facilities on MCBH which are eligible for this pass. Residents of Oahu do not qualify for House Guest privileges. Registered House Guest Passes will not be issued to visitors staying off MCBH. Sponsors requesting to sponsor a house guest visiting more than 72 hours must submit a House Guest form to the PMO Service Center prior to the visit for processing. House Guests with passes are not authorized entry to the commissary or allowed to make purchases, nor are they permitted to purchase merchandise at MCCS facilities.

Extended visits (30 or more days) are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and must be for the benefit of the Active-Duty member or their command sponsored dependents. Guardianship papers, power-of-attorney, or other legal authorization must be provided for minor guests.


Process for Submitting Houseguest Forms:

***Submission of Forms via Email***
All electronic forms must be digitally signed in the appropriate signature block using your DoD CAC credentials to validate the information submitted.  Any email or email attachment containing sensitive PII, such as date of birth, must be sent via official DoD email and encrypted and digitally signed in accordance with DoD policy. This type of sensitive PII is contained in a completed MCBH S-7 FORM 5532, BASE ACCESS REQUEST FORM, and possibly other forms or information that you provide to the Provost Marshal's Office. The use of unencrypted email or personal email for this type of information is not authorized and presents a risk of exposing visitors' sensitive information to entities that may use that information for malicious purposes.
