After a PortMiami Business Permit is approved for a Seaport partner, contractor and/or vendor, all personnel needing access to the Port shall apply for a PortMiami Identification Card. A PortMiami Identification Card must be conspicuously displayed at all times when accessing or working on Port premises.
Applicants with a valid Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) card will be issued a green identification badge which provides them unescorted access to designated restricted and secure areas based on their purpose for access.
Applicants without a valid TWIC card will be issued a yellow identification badge, and will require escort by a TWIC holder to enter designated restricted or secure areas. They must remain accompanied by that escort at all times.
Willfully and knowingly providing false information in an attempt to obtain a PortMiami Identification Badge is a third-degree felony punishable by up to five (5) years in jail and a $5,000 fine (FS 775.082 or 775.083).
Applicants are responsible for returning all PortMiami Identification Badges to the Credentials Section upon termination of employment or change of company.
By requesting for a PortMiami Identification Card, applicants agree to abide by all rules and regulations as established by the Miami-Dade Seaport Department and PortMiami Tariff No. 010.
