SIDA Badge

Adventurer B

Good Morning,

I completed the SIDA info a little over two weeks ago, how long does the process take?  I’ve had one in the past and it only took 1 week at the most.

The processing on the SIDA can take a variable amount of time depending on background and how busy the badging office is. I would contact your Station Admin Coordinator before your start date to confirm whether the SIDA process is complete or your badge is ready. If it isn't, depending on the station, you might be able to keep your start date and just be escorted into the SIDA area. Contact your admin for details - they should have been the ones who reached out to you to schedule your SIDA appointment or sent you the application.
