New Temporary “T” Badge Replacing Visitor and Construction Badges on 11/1/2016

In order to strengthen the safety and security of the Airport, and in keeping with the Airport’s Core Value of Safety and Security being our First Priority, SFO will be eliminating the Visitor “V” and Construction “C” Badges from the Airport Security Program.  Effective 11/1/2016, SFO will be enhancing the Airport’s escort program by implementing a more comprehensive Temporary Badge (“T” Badge). 

Unlike the “V” and “C” Badges, “T” Badges must be issued by the Airport directly to the individual to be escorted.  Badges will no longer be supplied to store up for as-needed issuance.  

There will be two types of “T” Badges available:

  • Standard “T” badges – valid for a maximum of 30 days.  A $10 fee per badge will apply for Standard “T” badges.
  • Limited Duration ”T” badges – valid for 24 hours.  There will be no charge for Limited Duration “T” badges.

Individuals must apply and pick up badges at the Security Access Office (SAO) and must present valid government-issued photo ID.  “T” badge users must be escorted by a badged Airport employee at all times.

For additional facts regarding the new program and procedures, see the Temporary Badge Page.  Additional information can be found on the PDF iconSteps For Issuance  sheet, and PDF icon"T" Badge Fact Sheet.

For questions, please contact the Security Access Office.

Thank you for your continued support in making the Airport secure for everyone.
