Napier Port COVID-19 Update: Proof of Vaccination Required
This email sets out the upcoming requirement for mandatory vaccination for all people on site at Napier Port. This is part of the Napier Port COVID-19 Response policy.
We are committed to our health and safety obligations, and we want to do everything reasonably practicable to keep people safe. The clear view from our port user consultation is that port-wide controls will be key to protecting each other from the virus and keeping operations running now that COVID-19 has arrived in Hawke’s Bay.
The government required all Tier 1A border workers at New Zealand ports to be fully vaccinated by 30 September 2021. Napier Port’s COVID-19 Response policy now requires that all Napier Port employees are also fully vaccinated.
What this means for you and your workplace
We are now extending the vaccination requirements to the whole Napier Port site. Any person coming onto Napier Port who holds a valid Napier Port Port Pass will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
We remain conscious of the large number of port users and the complexity of connections onto Napier Port, which logistically means this process will take time to implement.
We ask that vaccination information is provided to us as soon as you can, and by 31 December 2021 at the latest.
How to provide your vaccination information to Napier Port
Port Pass access card holders will have their vaccination status included in their Port Pass record. This means that Port Pass holders will not be repeatedly asked for their vaccination status; port access will be automatically enabled once their vaccination status has been added to the Port Pass database.
For every Port Pass holder in your organisation, please send an email to email@example.com with a photo of their Port Pass card, and a photo of their proof of full vaccination.
Please use one of the following items as proof of vaccination:
- a photo of the COVID-19 vaccine record card
- a screenshot of vaccination details from mycovidrecord.health.nz
- a copy of the ‘My Vaccine Pass’ record
If you have any questions about sending us this information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We take our responsibility to look after our people extremely seriously. In addition, Napier Port is a lifeline service that is critical to our regional economy and the national supply chain, requiring us to be able to operate safely and effectively at all times.
I remain optimistic that our suite of COVID-19 prevention and suppression measures, including the requirement that people on port are vaccinated, will ensure we remain open and operational, and that both our wider Hawke’s Bay community and our regional economy will withstand the long tail of COVID-19.
Thank you for joining us in our efforts to keep port workers and our wider community protected from COVID-19.

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).
