How to Request

The Visitor Control Center can process requests for unescorted access on a same-day basis, but you can speed the process by filling out the appropriate form and submitting it to the VCC. Please note below that there are two different forms – one for contractors of civilian companies located at and supporting Fort Sill missions (Fort Sill Form 118), and another for post visitors (Fort Sill Form 118a).

Exceptions to this requirement include:

  • Tour buses have the option of submitting FS Forms 118 for all the attendees or they can be escorted onto post and throughout its tour by a Public Affairs Office representative or an officer/NCO appointed for the duty. Note: Coordination of any visit should be made 30 days before arrival and be directed to the Community Relations specialist in the PAO. For more information, call the specialist at +1 (580)442-3024
  • Delivery trucks must access Fort Sill through Apache Gate. A special station for background checks will be available at that location. Fort Sill security personnel will recognize the DoD-issued Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) for access to post.
  • Taxis – Taxi drivers must have a DoD I.D. card or a pass card. Admission to post will be denied to any passengers who do not have a DoD I.D. card or a pass card.
  • Local buses – Bus drivers must have a DoD I.D. card or a pass card. Civilian passengers who do not possess a pass card will not be allowed to ride the bus through Fort Sill; they will be required to dismount the bus and be left at the gate. The Lawton Area Transportation System terminal will have several warning signs addressing that contingency.

As the result of the background information check, your request for access might be rejected. In this instance, the center staff will attempt to contact the requestor to inform them of the rejection. To appeal any access rejection, those parties should complete and submit (via the methods detailed above) a Fort Sill Form 117, FS Access Control Denial Waiver Application. Details for completing the form are contained within the form. Completing an appeal form does not guarantee any person access to Fort Sill. Only after the form is received and the merits of the document considered will a determination be made. After that determination is made, the requestor of the appeal will be notified as to its outcome.
