Applying for a Blue Badge

Applicants may qualify for a Blue Badge on a permanent or temporary basis after appointment.

If the Blue Badge is issued on a permanent basis the applicant is only requested to see a professional once. Present holders of the Blue Badge who need to have it renewed and have never attended an appointment need to be seen by a professional upon renewal. Temporary Blue Badge holders need to attend another appointment when it needs to be renewed.

Both permanent and temporary Blue Badge holders need to pay a one time fee of €11.50 payable in the exact amount if cash or by cheque payable to CRPD.

If the application for a Blue Badge is rejected, the applicant can appeal to the Blue Sticker Appeals Board which is chaired by the Office of the Commissioner of Police. The appeal must be made in writing to the Secretary of this Board.

Benefits of the Blue Badge

Those persons in possession of the Blue Badge are entitled to have the vehicle in which they are travelling parked in public places reserved for persons with disability with the Blue Badge prominently placed against the windscreen.

All EU Member States have an identical Blue Sticker and it can be used in all these countries and vice versa.
