If your vehicle does not meet the access criteria of the Low Emission Zone (LEZ), you can buy a day pass and have access to the Brussels-Capital Region.
There are many alternatives to the car for driving in the Brussels-Capital Region. Discover them below!
The day pass is non-refundable and non-exchangeable.
The following payment methods are accepted: Bancontact, Maestro, Mastercard and VISA.
Do not rely on websites offering you the purchase of stickers. They are neither necessary nor valid to travel in the Brussels LEZ.
On 23 January 2019, the Brussels court for French-speaking businesses handed down a ruling ordering Green Zone, a company governed by German law, to correct, in all the languages used on its websites, the erroneous information that encourages the purchase of a sticker to register a vehicle registered abroad.
The only LEZ-related charge is a day pass and it can only be purchased via this website. All other LEZ-related procedures (exemption and registration) are free of charge and can only be done via this site.
A day pass: what you need to know
The day pass costs €35 per day. It will cost 20€ per day for mopeds and motorbikes, 50€ per day for heavy goods vehicles.
The pass can be purchased in advance of entering the LEZ OR on the following day. Since the 1st of January 2020, it has been possible to buy the day pass by midnight the day after using the LEZ. Example: if I drive through the LEZ on the 3rd of January with a non-compliant vehicle, I have until the 4th of January at midnight to buy a pass.
After purchasing the pass, it takes 15 minutes before you can verify in the simulator that your purchase has been taken into account.
A maximum of 24 day passes can be purchased per year and per vehicle.
On the 1st of January each year, the vehicle will have another 24 days to travel via the purchase of a pass.
The day pass is valid only for the calendar day for which it was purchased and until 6am the next day.
Your licence plate number and the date of first registration of the vehicle (as well as the last registration date for foreign vehicles) are required to purchase a pass.
Drivers of foreign-registered vehicles (including The Netherlands) who would like to purchase a day pass must first register their vehicle.
Only passes purchased via this platform are valid. Passes do not come in sticker or paper form.

You can also check with your bank (PC Banking, etc.) if your day pass has been purchased. If this is recorded in your bank account, it means that the purchase has happened successfully and you do not need to buy another day pass.
