The Utah Army National Guard Visual Information Office is transitioning to a new automated request system. The automated request system is called the Visual Information Ordering System (VIOS) and is mandated for immediate use by the Department of the Army. All requests for support must go through this system. The system may be accessed at  http://www.vios.army.mil

 Logon and password to access the requesting system will be your AKO authentication.

All requests for DA photo appointments will be made using this system as well as all other services provided by this office. The VIOS request system supports Army National Guard, Active Duty Army and Army Reserve soldiers.

When scheduling a DA/Passport photo or ordering a product or service from

the Visual Information office, the VIOS website (www.vios.army.mil) usually

generates a certificate that conflicts with our internal network security.

Navy and USMC personnel only please contact the G6 Helpdesk at (801) 432-4357, DSN 766-4357 for assistance in making appointments.
