South Port must comply with national and international security measures, including the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code and New Zealand’s Maritime Security Act 2004.
To meet these requirements, all personnel and vehicles entering the Island Harbour must pass through security.

Contractors, vendors and provedores and other visitors to the port must:

  1. Pre-notify the port of their arrival.
  2. Bring official photo identification (e.g. Driver’s Licence or Passport) to show to security upon entry. No photo identification, no entry.

Any visitors not meeting these requirements will not gain access to the port.
