Pre-Cleared Visitor Program (PCVP) 

The Advanced Accompanied Visitor Pass system has become part of the new Pre-Cleared Visitor Program (PCVP). This program is designed to help employees facilitate easier campus access for their guests. Two or more business days before the guest's arrival, a sponsor can fill out the appropriate request with the guest's information. The information is then forwarded to the NIH Police, who will review the request and provide the appropriate pass if everything is in order. For the AAVP, the NIH requires the employee requesting the pass to accompany the guest at the point of entry. Further description and the process for requesting a PCVP are located at the link above.
