Holding and parking, applications for resident parking permits
Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

A resident parking area is a clearly defined area for which residents can apply for a resident parking permit for their vehicle. With this ID you are exempt from the maximum parking time and parking fee in the area.

If you use third-party vehicles, rental or company vehicles, you also have the option of applying for a resident parking permit. Rental and changing company vehicles must be clearly identifiable as these (name of the respective company).

You can find out which resident parking areas there are in Hamburg under Links.
No further documents are required for the online application. An automated verification takes place.

Apply for a resident parking permit online
  • You can apply for your resident parking permit online and then print it out at home.
  • When applying online, payments can only be made by credit card or Giropay.
  • Please make sure that you enter your personal data correctly. You can use the spelling on your identity card as a guide. Otherwise technical difficulties may arise.
  • If there is an information block in the population register, the online application cannot be used for security reasons. Please book an appointment with the LBV on site.
Extension of the resident parking permit
An extension is possible from six weeks before the end of the validity period. If the resident parking permit has already expired, it is no longer possible to extend it. Then please apply for a new resident parking permit.

Further information can be found in our FAQs.

Important: Your resident parking card must be displayed visibly in the vehicle! A resident parking permit is also required for motorbikes.
  • The resident parking permit does not secure a special parking space, but only allows parking in a parking lot in the resident parking area in which you are registered.
  • A resident parking permit can only be issued for a specific vehicle (license plate number is entered in the resident parking permit).
  • The resident parking permit is valid for one year from the application date and must then be extended.
