Green zone compulsory in Brussels

Brussels, Belgium: Since January 2018, a low emission zone has been operating in Brussels.

After a transition period, it is now compulsory to register foreign vehicles in order to access the zone.  Drivers can register vehicles on lez-belgium.be and receive a personalised Registry-Sticker with all the details of the entry permit.

Older heavily polluting vehicles should gradually be excluded from the zone of Brussels. Since January, vehicles without a Euro standard and with a Euro class 1 are no longer authorised to enter the zone. All non-Belgian vehicles must be registered in a city database where all vehicles are recorded.
