Toll system in Belgio: VIA-PASS

Who is concerned: It must be paid for goods vehicles with a weight of more than 3,5 tones.

Since 1st April 2016, the three regions of Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels have fixed a new taxation applied to a significant number of the major roads through Belgium. All heavy goods vehicles using the Belgian motorways and certain regional and municipal roads must have a specific vehicle box installed on board.
In Belgium, the collection of the tax is satellite-based. The specific OBU detects the position of the vehicle and the distance travelled. This data is used to determine the kilometers and calculate the amount to be paid.
This toll is levied in the VIA-PASS electronic system from Satellic.
There is no discount in the Belgian motorways.
The invoiced fee will depend on 4 factors::

  • the distance travelled in kilometers;
  • the EURO emission standard of the vehicle;
  • The weight of the vehicles;
  • The type of toll road.
In Wallonia region, a VAT has to be added to the toll. We handle the recovery of VAT paid.
CTI CIRIOTTO takes care of the registration with the toll operator and provides the post-payment for the Belgian motorways.
