The MSIC with incorporated Fremantle Ports Access (dual capability single card) will cover your access requirements for all Fremantle Ports berths in the Fremantle Inner Harbour and Kwinana facilities. The MSIC component of the card is the initial requirement for areas within other regulated ports, around and onboard regulated Australian ships, and security zones on offshore oil and gas facilities.
