Check if you are eligible

Using your visitor parking permit

Visitor Permits can only be used to visit the residential property that it is linked to.

They must be displayed clearly on the passenger side of the front windscreen of the visiting vehicle. Our parking enforcement team need to see the permit details easily. 

Visitor permit details are:  

  • permit number
  • area you can park in
  • date the permit expires.

Where you can park with a visitor parking permit: 

  • in designated permit zones (in the street or area listed on the permit)
  • without time limits in time-restricted areas (of 30+ minutes)

You cannot use a visitor parking permit for:

  • Parking in clearways, no stopping, loading zones, and any other red sign restrictions.
  • Any commercial purposes.
  • Parking a truck, trailer, motorcycle, bus, coach, towable caravan, vehicle over 7.5m in length or vehicle with a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) greater than 4.5 tonnes. Permits are considered invalid if displayed on any of these vehicles.

Don’t copy, reproduce or tamper with your permit. If we think a parking permit is being misused, we may ask Victoria Police to investigate it as a criminal offence.

Short stay accommodation parking

Short stay accommodation and rentals are usually rented via online providers like AirBNB, Stayz and Property owners can't get or keep resident or visitor permits if they do not live at the property. Parking permits cannot be used for any commercial purposes.

If you have concerns about parking related to a short stay rental property, let us know. We can investigate.
