Apply for parking permit for visitors

Do you live in an area with paid parking? If you have a parking permit for visitors, your visitors can park in your neighbourhood without having to pay.

How does it work?

You can order a maximum of 1 visitor's parking permit per address. You do not need to have a car yourself.

The permit entitles you to a certain number of parking hours per year. This is your parking credit. Do you need more parking hours? You can purchase additional hours later. Read more about Purchasing and carrying over parking credit.

Do your visitors need to park their car? Then you need to register and deregister your visitors. Your visitors do not need to pay themselves. The amount of time their car was parked will be deducted from your parking credit.

Are you expecting guests for a longer period of time? Apply for a long-term parking permit for house guests (vacation permit).


  • You live in The Hague and are registered at the address for which you are ordering the visitor's parking permit.
  • You live in an area where a parking permit is needed to park.
  • You do not live in the Energiekwartier or CS-Oost / Grotiusplaats. These areas are easy to reach by public transportation. And they are located at cycling distance from the downtown area, The Hague's Central Station and Hollands Spoor.
  • Your visitor's parking permit is meant only for your own visitors. You have to register your visitors yourself.
  • You may not sell your parking credit to other people. The municipality can revoke your parking permit if you do this.

The visitor's parking permit is not valid in shopping streets during shopping hours.
