Do I need stickers or registrations?

To enter the low emission zone, each vehicle concerned requires a valid registration. Otherwise a fine of 150 Euro to 350 Euro is to be expected.

The beginning and end of the environmental zones are marked with signs. This shows a red circle as a prohibition sign with a vehicle causing emissions. Who exactly is allowed to enter or not is not indicated by the entry sign.


In our Green-Zones App we have a detailed map of each low emission zone. So you can easily recognize the borders and avoid penalties.

There are 3 low emission zones in Belgium: Antwerp, Brussels and Ghent


In our Green Zones App we have gathered together all the low emission zones in Europe and presented them clearly.
