All visitors 16 years of age and older (pedestrians, drivers, and passengers) must present valid photo identification upon entering the cemetery. Original documentation is required. Paper copies or cell phone photos of identification are not accepted.

REMINDER: Sunday, Dec. 11 is Family Pass Holder Day at Arlington. This is limited to Family Pass Holders only. NO registration is required for Family Pass Holder Day.

    • Arlington National Cemetery is the only participating cemetery where a Family Pass Holder Day is held in conjunction with WAA.
    • Family Pass Holders are people who have an immediate next of kin laid to rest at Arlington. If you have questions about criteria or how to become a FPH, please contact Arlington National Cemetery directly.
    • Several people have asked if other National Cemeteries offer Family Passes or a Family Pass Holder Day. Arlington National Cemetery is not part of the National Cemetery Administration, it is run by the Department of the Army. It is the only WAA participating cemetery where this week before placement happens.
