Municipality of Maastricht: applying for a parking permit

To apply for a parkeervergunning (parking permit), you must meet the following conditions:

  • Your vehicle's kentekenbewijs (registration certificate) is in your name. Or you are using a leased car.
  • You live in the Netherlands and are registered in the municipality where you want to apply for the parking permit.
  • Are you not registered in the municipality? Then you must prove that you live and work in that municipality.
  • Your vehicle must meet the milieueisen (environmental requirements).
  • You do not have private parking.

In Maastricht's Overig gebied parking zone, you can apply for a maximum of 2 parking permits per address. In the Binnenstad parking zone you can only apply for 1 parking permit per address.


Do you live in an area with paid parking? Then you can apply for a parking permit online through the E-loket (in Dutch) using your DigiD. The parking rates and conditions in Maastricht may vary by district or by zone.

By appointment

If you don't have a DigiD make an appointment at the GemeenteLoket (Municipal Service Desk). To do so dial +31 (0)43 350 4040.

There are 2 parking zones in Maastricht: Binnenstad (city centre) and Overig gebied (other areas).
