Parking permit for foreign students

With a parking permit for foreign students you can park cheaply. You will get detailed information about where and when to park with your students parking permit when you receive it.

Apply for a parking permit for foreign students

When applying, you need to include in your application:

  • a copy of your personal registration at your domicile abroad plus a statement of which persons are registered at this address
  • the registration certificate as student for the coming school year
  • a copy of the vehicle registration certificate that is in the name of someone who lives at the address for which the parking permit is applied

If your request is approved, you will be notified by letter and you will have to come to the Municipal offices to pay for the permit. After that, your parking permit will be activated. Notification of receipt of your application is not a notification that the application has been approved: you must wait for the official approval. Until you receive this you must pay the applicable parking rate.

Other car

If you have (temporarily) another car you need to report the new car registration nummer online. It takes at least 2 working days before your permit becomes valid. You'll receive an email when the permit has been converted.

If you have any further questions or need more information, please send an e-mail to parkeren [at]
