Visitors Permits

How to Register

You can register for the digital visitors permit service only if you are a resident of the area.

Once registered, you can login to the portal using your registered mobile number or email address, and the PIN which was sent to you on completion of the registration process.

Using Visitors Permits by SMS

To use a visitors permit by mobile phone, you can text the word VISITOR to 61600 followed by the vehicle registration number to assign the permit to and the duration required.

For example:

VISITOR   T123EST   3hours

There is no need to display any type of permit in the vehicle, as the enforcement officers have a real-time list of authorised vehicles to check against.

The duration to use for a visitor permit is limited to hourly blocks, with a minimum duration of 1 hour.

SMS costs to 61600 may vary depending on your network provider. Please contact your provider for more information.

Using Visitors Permits Online

When logged in to the portal, select the Manage Digital Permits option from the menu and select Visitor Permits. From here, you can purchase visitors permits as well as use your purchased permits.

To use a permit, simply select the type of permit (depending on your provider), enter the vehicle registration, and the date for the permit to be effective from and the duration required.

You do not need to place a permit in the vehicle.

Using Visitors Permits by Telephone

To use your visitors permits by telephone, simply call 0345 520 7007 and one of the MiPermit team will ask for the registration number of the vehicle, when you would like the permit to be effective from, and duration needed.

Please note that call costs to 0345 numbers are charged at no more than a national rate call and inclusive in your mobile minutes.

Extending Visitors Permits by SMS

You can extend a visitor permit if your visitor is going to stay longer than first anticipated. This can be done by SMS by sending your text message to 61600 with the word VISITOR, the vehicle registration to extend and the duration to extend by.

For example:

VISITOR   A123BCD   1hour

The system will detect that you already have a current visitors permit and add the additional duration on to it in 1 hour increments.

SMS costs to 61600 may vary depending on your network provider. Please contact your provider for more information.
