Sweden has adopted the European Model Parking Card.
Those reserved for a Parking Card holder are marked with the wheelchair symbol.
Do not park if the space is marked with someone's name or a licence plate number.
Where you may use your Parking Card
Swedish Parking Card holder
You may use your Parking Card in most EU / EEA member states, and in some other countries around the world.
Look at the entry for the country you intend visiting to see if your Parking Card can be used.
Visitors to Sweden
Visitors from another EU / EEA member state – you may use your Parking Card in Sweden.
Visitor from outside the EU / EEA – you may use your Parking Card in Sweden, provided:
Parking on roads
You may park for up to three hours on a road where parking is prohibited, but your vehicle must not cause an obstruction or danger.
You may park in a pedestrian zone for up to three hours.
You may park for up to three hours on a road where parking is permitted for less than three hours.
You may park for up to 24 hours on a road where parking is permitted for between three and 24 hours.
When there are parking meters or pay-and-display parking must be paid for. Only a few municipalities allow free parking for holders of a Parking Card – ask locally.
Do not park in a space marked for a specific purpose or type of vehicle.
At a parking space marked with the wheelchair symbol, if a time limit is shown you must not exceed it. If a parking fee is charged you must pay it.
Parking in car parks
The time limitations for parking on roads also apply to public car parks.
Private car parks generally offer no concessions to Parking Card holders.
