When entering a Belgian LEZ, it is compulsory to register foreign vehicles

The Registry-Sticker created by Green-Zones is not an official badge. The sticker clearly shows which vehicle has been registered for which city and in which period of time.

Before accessing the Belgian environmental zones (Low Emission Zone LEZ), it is mandatory to register your vehicle.

Green-Zones offers a central platform that shows all present regulations in the existing and planned LEZ environmental zones. We take care of all registration processes for you and, if necessary, provide you with the respective environmental ticket. In addition, we provide information in your language and deliver a Registry-Sticker created by Green-Zones, so that you can always check if your vehicle is authorised to access the corresponding LEZ!

Since each city or municipality/region has very different regulations for its environmental zones, the respective registration mostly has to be done separately. Due to the diverse regulations and specifications for the EURO emission standards in the respective city/municipality and their LEZ, different entry restrictions for different vehicle types can be applied to the multiple LEZ zones in Belgium.

Due to the different regulations and requirements for the EURO classes in each city/municipality and in their LEZ, different driving bans can be imposed on different vehicle types in different LEZ environmental zones in Belgium.
Moreover, since registration is carried out separately for each LEZ and it cannot be transferred, and since environmental tickets/daily passes are valid only in the corresponding LEZ and are not subject to the same rules in each LEZ, foreign vehicles in the Belgian environmental zones could face high fines in case of non-compliance with these rules.
