Resident parking card

With a resident card you can park your car in the sector of your home, without putting your blue card or using the parking meters.

Permit applications and delays

Due to the many requests for parking cards in recent days (resident cards and professional cards), the City services are experiencing a delay. Your card request will be processed as soon as possible. The parking attendants and the services that check on the terrain are aware of this delay, which is why there is a tolerance period. This means that you will not receive any fines or fees while your parking permit application is being processed.

This card is intended for the following people:

  • Natural persons registered in the population register or waiting list of the City of Brussels;
  • Persons living on the territory of the City of Brussels, whose vehicle is registered abroad, may receive a temporary resident card during the application period for a Belgian registration certificate at the DIV (Federal Public Service Mobility and Transport - Department of Vehicle Registration) for a maximum of 3 months following the day of their application for registration in the population register of the City of Brussels
