Is my vehicle admitted or not?
If your vehicle meets the LEZ standards, a free registration will suffice. If you have a non-admitted motor vehicle, you must buy an LEZ day pass. Check here to see whether your vehicle is admitted or not.
My vehicle is admitted according to the LEZ standards
Foreign vehicles must always be registered in advance, even if they are admitted according to the standards.
You can register online via the website of the City of Antwerp, as early as 4 months prior to entering the LEZ and up to 24 hours after entering the LEZ.
You can register your vehicle at an LEZ machine as early as 4 months prior to entering the LEZ and up to 24 hours after entering the LEZ. You can find more information about the machines here.
PLEASE NOTE: Do not take any risks and remember to register your vehicle online in advance. If you register your vehicle late, you will still have to pay the fine. In case of repeated offences, the fine can amount to 350 EUR.
My vehicle is not admitted according to the LEZ standards
- Buy a paid admission or an LEZ day pass online
You can buy a paid admission online here. You can do so as early as 4 months in advance and until one day prior to entering the LEZ. You must first answer the questions to determine whether your vehicle qualifies for free registration. If your vehicle does not meet the standards but is still eligible for a paid admission, then you can purchase an admission for a day, a week, a month, three months, six months or a year.
If your vehicle does not qualify for a paid admission or you did not buy a paid admission in time, you can buy an LEZ day pass online here. You can do so 4 months in advance and even on the day on which you enter the LEZ. You can purchase the LEZ day pass up to 8 times a year and it will give you access to the LEZ for one day, regardless of the vehicle you are driving.
- Purchase an LEZ day pass on-site
You can buy an LEZ day pass on-site, from a machine. You can do so:
- at a parking meter on the street;
- at an LEZ machine inside or outside the LEZ zone.
More information about the machines and their location can be found here.
