Temporary Exemption to Extend the Expiration Date of Certain MPA ID Badges and Decals


February 28, 2022

Dear Subscriber,


The Maryland Port Administration (MPA) is experiencing a delay from the vendor that supplies our MPA public marine terminal identification (ID) badges.  Due to this delay, the MPA is granting a temporary extension for terminal ID’s and also vehicle decals that expire today (February 28) and on March 31, 2022.   The exemption will extend the validity of the ID and decal for 60 days from the expiration date.

In addition, new MPA terminal ID applicants will receive a 30-day temporary ID to ensure their access to the MPA terminals.  The MPA Badging Center will notify impacted cardholders directly when they are eligible to complete their new or renewal ID.  If you have any questions please contact the MPA Office of Security at 410-633-1152.
