The Municipality of Porto suspended all payment obligations, as regards outdoor parking spaces, starting 25th January. This measure is in line with the hardening of measures amid the Covid-19 pandemic, namely the mandatory curfew and the closing of schools.

The Municipality safeguards local residents’ parking spaces, as regards pre-paid fees and requests that have been denied in the absence of a quota, in the framework of the new lockdown that has been issued by the Portuguese authorities. This payment suspension will be in place while the restriction measures last.
