Apply for parking permit for residents

Do you live in an area with paid parking? If you have a parking permit, you do not have to pay for parking each time.

  • You live in The Hague and are registered at the address for which you are ordering the resident’s parking permit.
  • You do not live in the Energiekwartier or CS-Oost / Grotiusplaats. These areas are easy to reach on public transportation. And they are located at cycling distance from the downtown area, The Hague’s Central Station and Hollands Spoor station.
  • You do not live on the Palaceplein.
  • You are the owner of a car or mircocar. Or the vehicle is registered in the name of your husband/wife or civil partner and you live together. This person is registered at the address.

  • You can also apply for a permit if:

  • Per address you can apply for a maximum of 3 resident’s parking permits.
  • Is your car longer than 6 metres or higher than 2.40 metres? Or do you drive a camper? Then other Begin link: conditions, end link. apply.
  • Are you sharing your car with somebody else? Then the following Begin link: conditions, end link. apply.

The resident’s parking permit entitles you to unlimited parking in the areas where the permit is valid. Read the Begin link: conditions for use, end link. .

  • The number plate of your car.
  • Your bank account number (IBAN).
  • For applications without DigiD: your citizen service number (BSN).

In the following cases you will need to submit extra documents:

  • You drive a lease car: a lease contract in your name.
  • You drive a company car: a declaration by your employer. The declaration must state that you often need the car for your work (at least 3 months). The number plate and the period during which you are going to drive the car must also be included in the declaration. Is the vehicle registered in the car lease company’s name? If so, a declaration by the car lease company and your employer is needed.
  • You drive a car with a foreign number plate: a digital version of your car’s registration document.
  • You have diplomatic status and you are not registered in the Personal Records Database (BRP): a copy of your privileged person’s identity card.
  • Do you have your own garage or premises which you are not able to use? Then the municipality needs a declaration (proof) from the manager which states that you are not able to make use of it at the moment. Does it belong to Staedion or Q-Park? Then this declaration is not required.

The permit is linked to the car’s number plate. If you have more than 1 car, you will need to apply for a permit for each car. Per address you can apply for a maximum of 3 resident’s parking permits. You can apply for the permit online or in writing. Do you have a parking space on your own property or do you have diplomatic status? Apply in writing.
