Checking In

Parking

Parking at the Facility is limited and restricted.  All visitors and check-ins must park on the first deck of the parking garage (entrances on O'Bannon St. and Sanctuary Dr.) and route through the Visitor's Center on the southeast side of the installation. 

Accessing the Facility

As a new arrival, you will not be able to access or park inside the facility (unless previously coordinated).  All access to the facility is controlled and requires a pass.  After parking your vehicle, please proceed to the Visitor’s Center (indicated above) to receive your visitor’s pass.  Once you have your pass, please proceed to the first floor of the McCarthy building to begin your check-in process. 

Checking In

All personnel checking in during normal working hours will first check in with their respective MSC G-1 in order to receive a reporting endorsement.  Then the member and sponsor will come down to the IPAC to complete their audit, be issued a check-in sheet, and start the check-in process.  It is highly recommended that you immediately get your permanent personnel Common Access Badge (CAB) from the Security Management Office.  This badge will give you access to the facility, the building and specified work spaces. 

Documentation

All service members must have their Original Orders and a valid Active Duty ID card.  All members in possession of their hard copy SRB/OQR and Medical/Dental records must have these items with them upon reporting.  If the member comes from a unit that does have hard copy medical records, you will submit those to the clinic aboard Naval Air Station/Joint Reserve Base Belle Chasse when reporting there.  Those that have electronic service and medical records are only required to have their orders and ID when reporting.  Finally, it is recommended that you bring PT gear so you can complete check-in with the training section.

Uniform

Marines reporting in for duty during working hours should be in the Service “A” uniform.
Sailors reporting in for duty during working hours shall report in Dress Whites/Blues depending upon the season.

Barracks and Temporary Lodging

If a new service member arrives at this command Monday - Friday before 1630, he or she must obtain a reporting endorsement and check-in sheet prior to being assigned a room in the barracks.  See the HQBN S-4 Enlisted Barracks Manager or the Barracks 562 Front Desk Staff (aboard NASJRB Belle Chasse). 

Members arriving after working hours or on non-work days must contact the OOD and/or DNCO and arrange to meet up with one of those individuals on duty to get their orders and the duty logbook annotated with the date and time of the member's arrival.  Service members arriving between 1700 - 2200 will be assigned a barracks room by the Barracks 562 Front Desk Staff (504) 678-7054.  For those arriving after 2200, there is on-base lodging available at the Navy Gateway Inn & Suites (504) 678-3419 aboard NASJRB Belle Chasse.  If NGIS is unavailable, the Federal City Inn (504) 366-7408 as well as numerous other local hotels are options for temporary lodging.  Ensure you receive receipts from any hotels in the local area - the receipt will be used to receive a statement of non-availability from the HQBN S-4 Enlisted Barracks Manager, if required.

Vehicle Registration

Privately owned vehicles must be registered aboard the Facility.  Vehicle registration requires valid driver’s license, insurance, inspection and registration and can be done at the Visitor’s Center. 

After-Hours Check In

All service members reporting in after hours must contact the Officer of the Day (504) 616-9448 or the Duty Noncommissioned Officer (504) 715-5154 to coordinate the time and location to obtain a stamp on your orders.  After working hours, the DNCO is located aboard NASJRB Belle Chasse, and the OOD stands a phone duty.
