2014-2018 Ocracoke Re-Entry Permit Process

Re entry Permit

The Hyde County Emergency Services Department issues re-entry permits to Ocracoke residents and property owners to be used when emergency conditions limit general access to Ocracoke Island.

The re-entry permit process was modified in 2014. Re-entry permits are now issued to be valid for several years. To make the process even easier, people with existing permits only need to apply for a new 2014-2018 expiration date sticker for their permit. Those applying for the first time will need to complete the full application and supply all necessary documents.

You may renew your existing permit or apply for a new permit in person or by mail.  If renewing by mail, the applications are processed quarterly.   If renewing your permit in person, make sure to bring the plastic hangtag permit with you.  No applications are accepted during an active event.

Hyde County staff will issue permits at the Hyde County Government Center on Monday, August 7, 2017, from 9:00am to 11:00am and at the Ocracoke Community Center on Tuesday, August 8, 2017, from 9:00am to 11:00am.

The Hyde County EMS 2014-2018 Re-entry Permit Application is available below. To complete the process by mail, include a self-addressed and stamped envelope with all necessary documents.  
Please mail this application to: Hyde County Attn: Teresa Adams, P.O. Box 921 Ocracoke, NC 27960
