ARRIVAL AT ARGONNE
In your employment letter you will find mentioned that you should stop at the Argonne Visitor Reception Center to pick up a gate pass. Everyone entering the Argonne Grounds must have a gate pass. For foreign nationals it may take up to two weeks to arrange for the gate pass. If you will be accompanied by a family member or friend, make sure that your host division is aware so proper arrangements can be made. If you are staying in on-site housing, please notify your host division of your arrival date, so that they can ensure that the gate pass will be waiting for you. If you arrive between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, you can stop and pick up your pass at the Argonne Visitor Reception Center outside the Northgate entrance to the Laboratory. You must present your passport as identification. If you are arriving when the Visitor Reception Center is closed, your gate pass can be held for you at the main gate. Advance notification is necessary for this service. An employee badge will be prepared for you during your New Employee Orientation Program.
