To improve air quality, Ghent’s inner city (the area within the ring road) will become a low-emission zone on 1 January 2020. Only vehicles that meet the conditions for admission will be allowed into this zone.
Permitted vehicles with a foreign number plate must be registered. You can register your vehicle from September 2019 via the registration tool at www.lez2020.gent.
The low-emission zone will apply to:
* all domestic and foreign vehicles (passenger cars, camper vans, vans and trucks, agricultural vehicles, buses - this also includes tourist coaches)
* petrol and diesel vehicles
* gas-fuelled vehicles (CNG, LNG and LPG)
* 24 hours a day / 7 days a week starting from 1 January 2020
