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 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 are the owner of a car or mircocar. Or the vehicle is registered in the name of your husband/wife or registered partner and you live together. You can also apply for a permit if:

    • the car is a lease car
    • the car is a company car
    • you (temporarily) are unable to use your own parking space. For example, in a garage or on your own property
    • you have diplomatic (privileged person) status. For example, an employee of an embassy
  • 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 conditions apply.
  • Are you sharing your car with somebody else? Then the following conditions apply.

The resident's parking permit entitles you to unlimited parking in the areas where the permit is valid. Read the conditions for use.

Needed for the application

  • 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:

  • If you drive a lease car: a lease contract in your name.
  • If 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.
  • If you drive a car with a foreign number plate: a digital version of your car's registration document.
  • You are (temporarily) not able to use your parking space: a declaration by the owner or manager of the garage. The declaration must state that you are currently not using the parking space and that there are no parking spaces available. The declaration may be a maximum of 1 week old. Are you using a Staedion or Q-Park garage? Then this declaration is not required.
  • You have diplomatic status and you are not registered in the Personal Records Database (BRP): a copy of your privileged person's identity card.


      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 by post. Do you have a parking space on your own property or do you have diplomatic status? Apply by post.

            • Do you live with other people at 1 address, for example in a multi-tenant building or complex? Then you may have to pay the more expensive rate for a 2nd or 3rd car. The municipality will determine the rate based on the waste tax. Do you pay the waste tax separately? Then you will pay the basic rate (rate for 1st car) for your parking permit.
