    I only ever needed my ID or passport. And he needs to sign you in.

    edit: and those were bases in Korea and Germany and I'm German.

    In the US, valid ID is required, however I have no idea what bases in foreign countries require. Hopefully someone can help. If not, your friend should know the requirements.

    When I was in Japan, a passport was all that was needed.

    We had to go into the security office with the person and their passport, and get them a pass. Generally, we were required to stay with the guest at all times on that sort of visitor pass. No health insurance was required for a day pass like that.

    If you are wanting to stay with someone on base, it does get more complicated and then we did have to show that the person had valid health insurance. I wasn't at Oki, and was at a Navy base, but hopefully that helps a little.

    In Korea, you actually need your passport and a picture ID (driver's license, for example). They keep your picture ID while you are on base.
