We welcome visitors to our main campus in Richland, Washington.
PNNL is 17 miles from the Tri-Cities Airport (PSC), which is located in neighboring Pasco. The airport is served by major airlines, including Delta, United, Alaska, and Horizon Air. We look forward to seeing you.
Federal regulations require that visitors receive authorization prior to arrival at PNNL, and that they get a visitor’s badge upon arrival on campus. Please read the following badging procedures for U.S. citizens and foreign nationals:
U.S. citizens must present valid, government-issued photo identification such as a U.S. passport or state-issued driver’s license. State driver’s licenses and identification cards must meet the REAL-ID ACT OF 2005 standards established by the Department of Homeland Security.
Visitors with state driver’s licenses or identification cards that do not comply with REAL ID standards will be permitted access to facilities only when escorted by a PNNL employee.
Lawful Permanent Residents (LPR) of the United States must present a valid LPR card or evidence of lawful status if waiting for an LPR card to be issued. Non-U.S. citizens who are not LPRs must provide valid passports and visa documentation, including an I-94 Departure Record or an applicable passport admission stamp.
Located within walking distance of PNNL's research facilities, Discovery Hall is where PNNL researchers gather with academic and industrial partners. Please begin your visit at PNNL’s Badging and Operations Center at 650 Horn Rapids Road, Richland, WA 99354.
