Stopping and parking, exemption for nursing services and midwives
Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

In many districts of Hamburg, e.g. in all resident parking areas, parking space management takes place. Short-term parkers can only park there against payment of the parking fee or partially using the parking disc. In both cases, the respective maximum parking duration must be observed.
Nursing services and midwives affected by this can, under certain conditions, receive an exemption from the stopping and parking regulations. This applies above all to the care as well as the pre- and aftercare of patients on site.
  • a signed, informal application with a detailed description of the activity to be carried out
  • a copy (front and back) of the registration certificate part I (vehicle registration document) of the vehicle for which the approval is to apply
additionally for care services:
  • Proof of activity (e.g. a copy of the business registration or the extract from the commercial register)
  • If applicable, current proof of membership in a welfare association (from the current calendar year)
additionally for midwives:
  • Proof of professional practice as a midwife (e.g. registration for freelance work, certificate of permission to use the professional title)


Exceptions are only granted in urgent individual cases. It must be a necessary and specific caring activity for which parking the vehicle on site is absolutely necessary.
The application must contain precise information on the purpose of the vehicle use and the maintenance work to be carried out.


Feel free to use our digital application process for the application (see link above). Alternatively, you can also submit your application by post or email, provided that all the necessary documents are available or have been sent.

An exemption is granted for a maximum of one year . A special permit is issued for a specific vehicle and cannot be transferred to other vehicles. The license plate is entered in the special permit. If you change vehicles, you can apply for a license plate change for a fee during the period of validity of the exemption.
