Parking permit for residents

In a large part of Maastricht, paid parking or parking for permit-holders applies. These areas are divided into the Zone A (centre A1 and A2) and the Zone B (outside the canals). If you live in an area where paid parking or parking for permit-holders applies, then you may qualify for a parking permit. Use the overview of parking sectors to see where the A and B zones are. In the Céramique district, parking permits do not apply; you cannot get a permit for this district.

Apply for a parking permit

Registration number registered in your name

If this is this the first time you are applying for a parking permit, you can use the online application form. For this you'll need DigiD. The registration number must be registered in your name. You pay via iDEAL.

After finishing your application you'll receive a confirmation email.

Registration number registered to (lease) company

If the registration number is registered to a lease company or a/your company, you can apply for the parking permit online. Please send the following:

  • a copy of the valid registration number of your lease car or company car
  • a copy of the lease contract
  • a statement by the employer showing that you are the driver of the vehicle
Payment

You do not pay online via iDeal, but you will receive an e-mail within 1-2 working days with the payment instructions. After payment, your parking rights will take effect. This means that your parking rights do not take effect directly after you submit this application; your application will first be assessed. You will receive confirmation of receipt directly after you submit this application.

  • Change your Dutch or foreign registration number

    Do you want to change your Dutch registration number temporarily?

    Please use the online application form. You will need DigiD for this. The change takes effect directly and your parking rights are activated straight away. For temporary changes, you must enter a starting and an end date. The duration must never be longer than 29 days. Once this term has lapsed, your original registration number is automatically in place again.

    Do you want to change your Dutch registration number permanent?

    Please use the online application form. You will need DigiD for this. If the registration number is in your name, the permanent change applies directly and you can use your parking right away. If it concerns your lease car or company car, you will receive a message with a link with which you can activate your parking permit. On average, you will receive this message within 1-2 working days. Until then, you will have to pay for parking in a paid parking zone.

    Change your foreign registration number 

    If you have a foreign registration number and you wish to change it, please do this via:

    • the e-mail address parkeren [at] maastricht.nl
    • the counter at the GemeenteLoket
      Please make an appointment first. The Municipal Service Desk (GemeenteLoket) is available by appointment only. 
  • Application without DigiD

    You can also submit an application without DigiD. The application then takes about 3 weeks to process. Your application will be assessed and you will receive a message about the way in which you can pay. After payment and the evaluators agreement, your parking rights will take effect. You will receive confirmation about this.

    With your application without DigiD, please include a copy of:

    • the valid registration certificate
    • your valid proof of identity

    If the registration number is registered to a lease company or a/your company, also send the following:

    • a copy of the valid registration number of your lease car or company car.
    • a copy of the lease contract
    • a statement by the employer showing that you are the driver of the vehicle

    If you are unable to apply for your parking permit online, without DigiD you can visit the municipal service desk. Please make an appointment first. The Municipal Service Desk (GemeenteLoket) is available by appointment only.

  • Terms

    The conditions for a parking permit for residents are:

    • You are registered in the Municipal Personal Records Database (BRP) of Maastricht.
    • You live in the area the parking permit applies to.
    • The registration number of your vehicle is registered in your name, to a lease company or to the company you work for.

    Have you just moved?

    And have you cancelled your parking permit in your former district? Then it will take an average five days to process your move in the Municipal Personal Records Database (BRP). Once this is done, you can apply for a new parking permit for a different district.

    Second parking permit

    You may be eligible for a second parking permit if:

    • You live in the A2 or B-zone
    • Your household consists of 2 adult persons or fewer
    • You don’t have your own space to park
    • There is sufficient space in the district
      A limit has been set for this in zone A2. Once this limit is reached a second permit is no longer possible
  • Deadline

    Within 8 weeks after receipt, the council will reach a decision on your application. This term can be extended once.

  • Objections and appeals

    You can object to the decision on your application. You should do this within 6 weeks. If after this, you do not agree with the decision on the objection, you should appeal to the court.
