Vehicles with a foreign number plate

If you are planning to come to Barcelona and its metropolitan area with a vehicle with a foreign number plate, you must register beforehand and check that you comply with the necessary environmental requisites. If your vehicle meets the requirements, you may circulate without restrictions. If your vehicle does not meet the requirements, you must apply for daily permits up to a maximum of ten permits per year to be able to circulate in the Barcelona Ring Roads Low Emission Zone.

Barcelona, an action for the climate city

Barcelona implements actions for safeguarding air quality and fighting climate change. The designation of the Barcelona Ring Roads Low Emission Zone is a measure to improve the quality of the air we breathe, and at the same time to promote other ways of getting around the city, which guarantee safe, sustainable, equitable, efficient mobility. More than two hundred European cities now have defined environmental protection zones to safeguard people's health.
