Form to Visit HRIBF

Form to Visit HRIBF

Upon completion of this short form, you will be asked by email (within 2 business days) to go to a secure ORNL web-site where you will need to supply some information about yourself. The information required to complete this form, as well as maps, directions and accommodations, is given in the visitors section of this website. Failure to provide required information will cause delays in processing your request to come on-site. To prevent problems, foreign nationals will be asked to fax HRIBF the pages of your passport containing your name, expiration date of the passport, and any current U.S. visa information it may contain.


If you do not yet know your exact travel plans fill out this form anyway and then contact us as soon as you have finalized your itinerary. Experimenters are encouraged to fill this form well in advance of their experiment.

You must provide some form of photo identification when you arrive. For U.S. citizens this is a photo-ID such as a drivers license. For all others, a passport is required.
