Effective July 1, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam will no longer issue or require Department of Defense decals for privately owned vehicles.
As a result, the DOD vehicle decal sticker will not be required for access to JBPHH installations and annexes on Oahu.
Instead, currently approved credentials, such as the Common Access Card, and other like identification, will be the single source used to allow access to JBPHH.
Persons using privately owned vehicles are still required by state law and DOD regulations to maintain proof of insurance, registration and safety inspection documents. These items are subject to inspection and must be readily available.
The elimination of the decal sticker is directed by Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC).
Until July 1, current requirements will remain in effect. Current decals may be left on the vehicle until the expiration date for ease of access to other installations requiring decals. In addition, all personnel must register their vehicles at the Pass and ID Office upon a permanent change of station transfer.
Rental vehicles will be treated as privately owned vehicles for purposes of base entry and access control. The vehicle rental contract will suffice as proof of valid registration and insurance for base access.
Military and civilian motorcycle operators entering the base will also comply with the policy, as well as all Navy traffic safety requirements.
Contractors are required to continue to apply for temporary passes for one-day visits or register under the Navy Commercial Access Control System, which provides background checks and periodic reviews so a contractor on official business may be issued an annual credential for access to Navy installations.
Parking placards for individuals in the ranks of E-9, O-6 and above will be issued by Pass and ID upon verification of rank. Parking placards will not be allowed as sole means for base access and will not act as a substitute for authorized base access credential.
Additional information on parking placards availability will be disseminated prior to July 1.
