Identification Requirements Visitors
If you have a meeting at the Port of Olympia Seaport, your name will appear on a visitor list. If you do not have a scheduled appointment at the Port, the front gate guard will contact the individual that you wish to visit in order to authorize your entry. You will be required to present a valid government-issued photo ID to obtain a daily visitor badge. During your visit you will be escorted by a Port or tenant staff member that has the proper clearances to escort personnel on the facility. TWIC Cards
The Port of Olympia is a Coast Guard regulated facility. The Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 (MTSA) requires a Transportation Workers Identification Credential (TWIC) card to gain unescorted access to secure areas of maritime facilities and vessels. No one will be allowed on the marine terminal facility without a TWIC card, unless in the presence of an approved escort. Please note that having a TWIC card does not give an individual full access to an MTSA-regulated facility. That individual must also have a valid reason for being on the premises, such as a working at the facility, which will be verified by the guard and staff. It is a violation of federal law to present a fraudulent TWIC card in order to gain access to a Port facility.
