Apply for access to Ports of Stockholm

Exempel på hur behörighetskort kan se ut

To enter a port facility in Kapellskär, Nynäshamn or Stockholm you must apply for access authorisation. You must comply with Ports of Stockholm’s safety regulations and you must be aware of your responsibilities concerning your access authorisation card. This is necessary both for access to be granted and to ensure that port facilities are secure and safe locations for employees and visitors alike.

There are specific provisions and regulations that apply for working at Stockholm's oil ports. For exemple special permit approval must be obtained before any work can begin.
