Low Emission Zones (LEZ) of Antwerp
In order to improve air quality for everyone, Antwerp excludes the most polluting vehicles and transforms the city centre into a low emission zone (LEZ/environmental zone).

If you are planning to travel to Antwerp by car, check here whether you have access to the low-emission zone.
If your vehicle is permitted in the LEZ zone, but is not registered in Belgium or the Netherlands, you will need to register it first.
If your vehicle does not meet the access conditions, you can buy a ZBE pass a maximum of eight times a year at
LEZ ticket machines.
