Visitor vouchers

Visitor vouchers are scratch-off permits for residents that allow people visiting your controlled zone to park in a resident bay. Residents are entitled to an unlimited number of these vouchers.

Vouchers may be used for up to a maximum of six hours a day (except all day vouchers that cover the whole day).

Visitor vouchers can be used in the matchday zone when there are additional restrictions in place for matches or events at the Emirates Stadium.

You can view a map of your zone and the hours of restriction here.

Visitor vouchers cannot be used in private parking areas or on any housing estates. More information about parking on housing estates can be found on the Housing pages of this website. If you have previously bought vouchers or have an Islington blue badge you will not need to provide us with any documents when you apply.

  • book of 20 x 30 minute vouchers - £8.80
