As provided for, both by current ordinances on the subject, and by the Port Security Plan, to access the areas of the Port of Genoa included within the boundaries of security and to circulate within them, it is necessary to obtain a special permit, which is issued only to persons who require access to perform activities to be carried out within the aforementioned perimeter.

The permit is strictly personal and may not be used in any way and/or in areas other than those specified in the request for release.

To the users that hold this personal permit, where provided for and on request, a personal permit for vehicle access to the port can be issued. Valid port access permits may also be issued to vehicles registered in the name of companies accredited to port access.

Access to the port areas without the relative permit constitutes a violation of the provisions of current regulations on security and, consequently, those responsible for such non-compliance will be punished, if the act no longer constitutes a serious crime, on the basis of the provisions of the Navigation Code. The valid permit for port access, both personal and vehicular, is issued exclusively for the purpose and for the time strictly necessary to carry out what is indicated in the application submitted to the Port Registry Office. This request must be received at least 10 working days prior to the date requested for the first access to the port area.

With the withdrawal and consequent use of the access permit, the user declares to be aware of the laws, regulations and Ordinances in force in the maritime compendium of the port, relieving the Authority of any responsibility for any damage that may arise from access and consequent transit, parking and stopping in that port area. 

In the event of termination of the employment relationship or termination of the reasons for which the permit was issued, the Company that requested it must notify the Security Office of the termination of the right and, within 5 days, return it to the Port Registry Office with a declaration on headed paper listing the numbers of permits returned.

The complete documentation relating to requests for access permits can be delivered to the Port Registry Office located in Via al Molo Giano (Ship Repairs Area of the Port of Genoa opposite Quadrio Port Gate) during public opening hours (Monday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.) or sent by post or courier to the headquarters of the Western Ligurian Sea Port System Authority with the indication Ufficio Anagrafe Portuale - Palazzo San Giorgio - Via della Mercanzia, 2 - 16124 Genoa, ensuring that it is received at least 10 working days prior to the date requested for first access. 

Payment due for the relative fixed fees can be made directly through a POS available at the Port Registry Office and/or by invoicing upon registration at the Institution’s Accounting Office and the assignment of a Customer Code (pdf - 184.01 Kb ).
