Important Update: Port Pass Eastern Gate Access – New Turnstile Process

As of Monday 31 January, the turnstiles at the Eastern Gate will be activated to be used by ALL passengers, including Port employees, entering Napier Port. This date is to coincide with the Port’s COVID-19 mandatory vaccine requirement.

The new process for Port Pass access has been outlined below. Please read carefully and share this important update with anyone in your team who does not have regular access to email.

Correct Port Pass Access Process

Vehicle Access
If a Port User has a vehicle pass or company marked vehicle they may, as the sole occupant of a vehicle, drive on site after swiping their Port Pass access card on the panel by the barrier arm.

Passenger/Pedestrian Access
All passengers in a vehicle who hold a Port Pass access card must exit the vehicle and transit through the turnstiles and wait at the ‘Pick-Up Point’ for their driver to be cleared at the barrier arm.

CCTV / Access Management System
Port Security will be monitoring the system to ensure the person swiping in/out of the port matches with the Port Pass card being used.

Please remember that using someone else’s Port Pass is a breach of the Maritime NZ Security Act and is a serious offence. 

When Entering the Port:
Multiple passengers;

  • Assemble in the Security search/car 10-minute park area
  • Vehicle to wait in this area until all passengers have swiped through the turnstile
  • Vehicle to proceed through the entry lane and collect passengers on the port side of the barrier arm

1-2 passengers;

  • Exit vehicle at the barrier arm
  • Vehicle to wait until all passengers have swiped through the turnstile
  • Vehicle to proceed through the entry lane and collect passengers on the port side of the barrier arm
  • Once passengers are secure, the vehicle may proceed safely to its destination.

 

Security Reminder

As an international border and in order to comply with Maritime NZ legal regulations, Napier Port has strong measures in place to manage who comes onto port. A key part of our compliance and access requirements is your Port Pass Card and how you use it.

It is not only compulsory for everyone on port to have a Port Pass card, everyone accessing the port via the Western Gate or Eastern Gate must swipe their Port Pass card to both enter and exit the port. This specifically includes all vehicle passengers, and not just the driver.

In addition to our obligations as a border, our Port Pass access requirements are also very important in terms of Napier Port’s Health & Safety protocols. For everyone’s safety we need to know who is on port at any given time in the event of an emergency or evacuation.

Thanks in advance for your support with this. Please contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns.

Regards,

    Sustainability aligned with global goals: 

    At the United Nations summit meeting in September 2015, world leaders adopted 17 global goals (and 169 targets) as a set of universal goals that aim to address the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world. These are known as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
