Outgoing Classified Visits Process

DSS processes international outgoing visits for cleared U.S. contractors traveling to classified sites or attending classified meetings at the Collateral level. Unclassified meetings/unrestricted sites should be coordinated directly with the point of contact at the site to be visited.  DSS only processes requests to non-U.S. locations, and does NOT process requests to U.S. Embassies, U.S. Military sites or U.S. Naval vessels docked overseas.

Download the appropriate visit request form for the country to be visited. The security office should work with the traveler to complete the visit request form.  The Facility Security Officer (FSO) or Security Officer must review the form for completeness and accuracy prior to submission.  The security office will submit the visit request via Safe Access File Exchange, fax: 571-305-6010, or email scanned secured pdf to The DSS Request for Visit mailbox cannot open encrypted emails. Documents containing PII should never be sent via open email without securing the file.
