Thread: Visitor's Policies..
02-23-05, 10:17 AM #1
Well I was just wondering if any Marines could help me out on this one... Is there an actual visiting policy when you go visit a Marines' Corp base and how long could you actually stay on the base without any millitary ID?

they usually give u a 1 day visitors pass, depends on the base. As far as visiting a Marine in the barracks, they have a different visiting policy for that.

Where overseas do you want to visit and why didnt you specify that it was an overseas base in your FIRST post? Just wondering.

If you're visiting a certain person, then they should be able to find out what you need to do. If you're not visiting someone, why would you want to go on base anyway?

Ooh Sorry.. Sometimes I just give too much information and sometimes I just give to less information... It was just kind of a reaction type of thing.. I want to visit Iwakuni, Japan...

This thread is odd isn't it. Something very fishy going on here.

Yes, I'm going to visit a Marine on base.. However, I heard that in some bases you have to be a family member to stay on base, so I wasn't quite so sure.. Sorry for the confusion.

I want to go visit my BF in Iwakuni, Japan... but while he was in his MOS school in Meridian, Ms. his friend had a visitor over but it has to be a family member... So I was jw if the rules still apply before I head my way over there.

Do you live in Japan? Or are you traveling to Japan? Really, the best source of info is your friend who you're going to visit. If he's an idiot, then the base should have a general info line you can call or something. You're really asking the wrong people, unless one of us is actually stationed at Iwakuni. Otherwise, you won't be getting the straight dope.

I spent three years over in Okinawa. My wife, then girlfriend, came over for about two weeks. I took leave for the entire time. A family member, even a spouse, wouldn't be authorized to stay in the barracks. However, there are affordable hotels on or near all the bases. You don't have to be a family member to stay at base hotels. They are designed for Marines that are changing stations and need temporary housing; so, I think you need a military ID to make reservations and check in. You may even need leave orders, that's something for your Marine to check on. I think Camp Foster, on Okinawa, has an affordable hotel. The only thing is, it can be tough to get rooms sometimes. I planned her trip over six months in advance and was lucky to get a room. So the earlier you plan, the better.
