Low Emission Zone (LEZ)

Since February 1, 2017, the entire city center of Antwerp and the Left Bank (Linkeroever) have been designated as a low-emission zone. Vehicles that emit too much soot and fine particulate matter are not allowed to enter the low-emission zone. The FOMU is located within this zone. Please check in advance if your vehicle meets the admission requirements through this test.

Mandatory Registration: Vehicles with foreign license plates (except for Dutch plates) that meet the admission requirements must be registered once. Register your car here.
