Businesses (Employee Parking Permits)

Starting May 1, 2016 the City will begin issuing citations in the RPPP neighborhoods to all vehicles without active parking permits. The permits system has been operational since April 5, 2016. Starting January 1, 2016 all new employee permits must be purchased on a monthly basis.

Businesses are required to set up an account online. A valid business license will be required at the time of the initial request and upon annual renewal. All employee permits must be pre-approved by the employer each month on the on-line portal. No passes can be purchased in advance.

The City of Virginia Beach will no longer give out monthly hang tags. Instead each employee will be issued an adhesive sticker to put on the drivers' side bumper. The employer or the employee will no longer be required to visit the Treasurer's Office on a monthly basis.

Employees may register and purchase permits through the online portal on a monthly basis after approval from their employer. Employees may purchase parking permits online with a credit card.
