What is the best way to get to the NIH main campus?
For driving directions and public transportation recommendations, please visit Getting to NIH for details. When driving to NIH, plan some extra time to get through the security checkpoints at the visitor entrances to campus. Be aware that visitor parking lots on the NIH campus can fill up quickly. Consider taking public transportation as an alternative.
At this time, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has a high-tech registration system in place to fingerprint and photograph foreign visitors who are required to have visas as they enter through designated U.S. airports and seaports. Visitors with visas will be photographed and have their index fingers electronically fingerprinted or verified upon entering or exiting the U.S. The program will exempt permanent U.S. residents and foreign visitors from 36 countries who do not need visas to enter the US.
All Visa Waiver Program travelers must present a machine-readable passport at the U.S. port of entry to enter the U.S. without a visa; otherwise a U.S. visa is required.
