An electronic-applications system for entry to the Restricted Areas is being introduced. From 2 July 2018, harbor craft providing services in the Restricted Areas are to submit applications electronically via MARBET to MPA’s Port Security Unit for approval.

Applications are to be made on a per trip basis (“Single Entry”) unless the vessel has prior approval for multiple trips to:
– carry our project works
– provide tug/mooring services
-carry out contract work/projects on a daily basis, or
– carry out hydrographical surveys and diving operations

Hard copy applications will only be accepted if the MARINET system is down.

All applications, whether electronic or hard copies, must be submitted at least 2 hours before the vessel departs from the pier.
