Resident parking card

Resident parking card

The resident parking card allows you to park your vehicle in the area where you live without putting your blue card or paying at the parking meters.

It is attached to a number plate and only one card can be issued per vehicle. The vehicle may not weigh more than 3.5 tonnes.

The card is valid in grey, green and blue zones and events within the assigned sector.

You can benefit from a 1-year resident parking card in the following cases:

  • a vehicle rented by a foreign professional service provider for a maximum period of 6 months, not renewable
  • a vehicle in the name of a foreign owner used for professional purposes with a link to an employment contract
  • a vehicle driven by a civil servant residing in Belgium working for an international institution located in another Member State of the European Union
  • a vehicle whose owner is considered to be temporarily absent (leaving the Belgian territory for a period of between 3 months and 1 year and for which a declaration has been made to the competent service of the municipality) and which is not parked in Belgium for more than six months without interruption

Having your main residence on the territory of the City of Brussels

Special condition: having a secondary residence on the territory of the City of Brussels for which the owner pays the municipal tax on second homes. 

Do you have a vehicle registered abroad?

Anyone living in Belgium and owning a vehicle registered abroad must register it in Belgium. You can obtain a parking card valid for three months from the date of your application for registration in the population registers.
