Parking permit for caregivers

Do you receive informal care and do you live in an area where paid parking is in effect? A parking permit for caregivers allows your caregivers to park close to your home without having to pay on the spot.

Conditions

  • You live in a parking permit area in the Municipality of The Hague and you need informal care for medical reasons.
  • You can prove that you are dependent on home care or support. You can do this using the documents listed under What you need for your application.
  • Your caregiver is not registered at your address.
  • Are you going to move? Then you must notify the Municipal Parking Division of your new address and permit number(s). Are you moving within your old permit area? Then you can use the old permit until the end date on your permit.
  • The parking permit for caregivers has a credit of 400 parking hours per year. You will automatically carry over any unused hours at the end of the permit year to the new permit year. You can carry over a maximum of 50 hours.
Because of the coronavirus the municipality has provided an extra 50 hours of free parking for existing permit holders. The parking permit has automatically been credited.
