Congestion tax is charged for Swedish-registered vehicles that are
driven into and out of central Stockholm, Mondays to Fridays
between 06.30 and 18.29.
The tax is not charged on weekends or public holidays, on a day
preceding a public holiday or during the month of July. Some
vehicles are exempt
from congestion tax.
Vehicles are automatically registered at 'control points' during
the periods when congestion tax is charged. Each passage into or
out of central Stockholm costs SEK 10, 15 or 20, depending on the
time of day. The maximum amount per day and vehicle is SEK 60.

aggregated in the form of a tax decision. You can only pay once the
tax decision has been taken.
