Visitor Identification Card

Valid Visitor Identification Cards (VICs) are required for employees and companies working at Alice Springs Airport. Find out how to apply.

Visitors access

In order to work in secure areas of the airport, you are required to obtain and correctly display a valid Identification Card. Access to secure areas of Alice Springs Airport (ASA) is controlled via locked doors with electronic access control or electronic locks/padlocks.

All visitors without an ASIC who require access to secure areas of the airport and have a valid operational need, must obtain a Visitor Identification Card (VIC) and be supervised by a person holding a valid ASIC at all times.

To apply for a VIC, you will need to complete the VIC application form and present it to a VIC issuing agent. You will also need to be accompanied by a valid ASIC holder at the time of issue.

ASA can issue a VIC to those who have an operational requirement.

You may only be issued up to a total of 28 days' worth of VICs within a 12 months period. If you require access for longer than 28 days, you must apply for an ASIC. After you have submitted your application for an ASIC, you must present your confirmation of ASIC submission from the issuing body you applied through, in order for us to exempt you from the 28 day rule.

Returning your identification card
Failure to return your ASIC or VIC may result in a penalty being issued to you of up to $2,100. 

By law, you must return your ASIC card within 30 days if it is:

  • Expired
  • Cancelled
  • Damaged, defaced or altered
  • You no longer have an operational need.
