All persons who want to enter the port area for professional reasons must have a valid port card. This is also described in the "Algemene politieverordening" (in Dutch) (Article 2.2.1.). This is because authorisation is required to enter the docks, quays and quay access roads. Anyone unwilling or unable to present a port card can be refused access to the port.
The Port Authoritys harbour masters office issues the port cards. The port card can be requested by using the application form below. The price of a port card is stated in the tariff regulations and is invoiced to the company. The port card remains valid for 5 years.
Expired cards and cards from persons who are no longer employees must be returned to the harbour masters office.
The port card complements the electronic ID card.
Permission must also be obtained for one-off or temporary access to the docks and quays (e.g. for a short job at a company in the port, to take pictures or for filming). This application is also handled by means of the application form below.
