Due to high demand for the online entry permitting system, some users have experienced difficulties applying for entry permits. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working to process applications as quickly as possible.
In lieu of an entry permit, permanent residents of Dare and Currituck counties will be allowed entry with a valid NC driver’s license with a Dare or Currituck county address or a government-issued identification card with a local address. This applies to those from Currituck County who need to enter Dare County to conduct business, work or attend medical appointments. No one from Dare or Currituck County will be denied entry with proper identification.
Non-resident property owners will be allowed entry with a current tax bill or parcel data sheet with matching current government-issued id or an entry permit with matching current government-issued identification.
Non-resident employees that need to work in Dare County may show documentation providing proof of employment such as pay stubs or employee identification badges with matching current government-issued identification.
In an effort to expedite traffic at the checkpoints, the Dare County Sheriff’s Office requests that all commercial traffic entering the county use the right lane and all regular traffic use the left lane.
The next bulletin will be issued tomorrow, Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
