The organisation reserves the right to refuse admission. At the entrance, visitors will have their bags, rucksacks, luggage and personal items checked.  

The right to enter and remain on the Basilica grounds is subject to possession of a valid ticket, which visitors must show to visitors services and/or security staff upon request, or to any duly accredited Basilica staff.
