Cebu port to resume collection of single-entry pass fee from Oct 1

  • The Cebu Port Authority (CPA) will resume collecting single-entry pass fees starting October 1
  • The move is designed to encourage port users to process their annual vehicle pass (AVP) and annual personnel pass (APP).
  • Many port users have yet to acquire the CPA’s AVP/sticker and APP, which are required to enter the port’s operational/restricted areas
  • From January to July this year, the CPA port police has issued 61,505 single-entry passes

The Cebu Port Authority (CPA) will resume collection of the single-entry pass fee starting October 1 to encourage port users to process their annual vehicle pass (AVP) and annual personnel pass (APP).

In a memo dated September 8, CPA general manager Leonilo Miole said many port clients, stakeholders and users have yet to acquire the CPA AVP/sticker and APP, which are required for entry into the port’s operational/restricted areas.

Miole noted that from January to July this year, the CPA port police has already issued 61,505 single-entry passes.

He said resuming collection of the P112 single-entry pass fee is meant to encourage port users to process their AVP and APP, in compliance with CPA Administrative Order (AO) No. 04-2004.

AO 04-2004, issued in 2004, provides the revised policy on access control for the Port of Cebu.

AO 04-2004 aims to control access of people and vehicles to the ports, limiting it only to those who conduct and perform legitimate business and activities therein. It is also CPA’s policy to limit the entry and movement of people, including passengers, in the declared security zone for operational efficiency, safety and security.

An AVP is an access permit issued to vehicles of CPA business permit holders for moving cargoes and people in and out of the port. A temporary vehicular pass, meanwhile, is an access permit issued to vehicles transporting cargoes and people in and out of the port on a single-entry basis.

An APP is an access permit issued to personnel of entities involved directly in port operations. – Roumina Pablo
