The Will Rogers World Airport (WRWA) Operations Division is responsible for issuing airport identification
badges to employees who work at the airport and have access to restricted or security sensitive areas. We
issue badges to airline employees, concessionaires, tenants, vendors, contractors, consultants, government
employees and the Department of Airports employees.

The Badging Office is located in the basement of the WRWA terminal building. Applicants should park in the hourly parking lot. Take the elevator to the tunnel level (press “T”.)

All badge applicants must complete the required documentation, pass the necessary background checks and successfully complete training. All the forms needed for the badging process are individually linked in the steps below and are fillable on your computer. The forms cannot be saved, so if you do not finish filling out a form before you close it out, you will need to start again when you reopen the form. Just follow the steps below or print this checklist.
If you are unsure about what forms you need to complete, your employer can guide you. Once completed, print the forms, and return to your employer for approval and further instructions.
