Permanent Dock Pass Applications and GSSAT

Access to certain areas of the Port is controlled by legislation under the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS) and is regulated by the Department for Transport (Maritime Security and Resilience Division) - formerly TRANSEC.  

 

From Monday 12th July 2021, the current process of completing an online health declaration before attending the Port of Dover, will be replaced by a requirement to provide evidence of a negative lateral flow test within 72 hours of visiting.

The UK Government advice on testing is that everyone should complete two COVID tests per week.

Further guidance on the obtaining of test kits and getting tested can be found HERE:

Evidence of a negative lateral flow test result will be the official confirmation that is sent by text or  e-mail once the test has been registered. Evidence of a negative test must be produced to staff at Port Reception before any visitor pass is issued. There is no requirement to send the test confirmation by e-mail or other means prior to arrival at the Port.

 This procedure applies to all visitors to the Port of Dover, except the Border Agencies and Policing staff on operational duties, freight drivers, delivery drivers and permanent pass holders.

 Further assistance is available by contacting Port Reception:

 E-mail: pass.office@doverport.co.uk

Telephone: 01304 240400, ext. 4812

If you don’t have any of the above please ring the Port Reception [i]. Please do not turn up at the Port without one of these as you will not gain access into the Port.
