Parking in Armenia

Everything you need to know about parking in Armenia is mostly related to Yerevan. In other cities, you won’t encounter any difficulties and just need to follow the signs. Outside the capital, parking is generally free.

In tourist areas, you may encounter scammers who pose as “valets” and try to get money for free parking in this way. Always ask for their credentials!

Always enter your car license plate number in Latin letters without spaces in the format “00xx000”.

Online: on the iDRAM website. We can’t recommend the Mobidram website because you may wait for the registration SMS for a long time or won’t receive it at all. 

Payment procedure:

  • Go to the iDRAM website. 
  • Sign up. To confirm your registration, you will need to enter your phone number that can receive the SMS with a confirmation code. When creating your password, you will be asked to enter a special character, however, the website does not accept most punctuation characters. Try the slash sign “/”.
  • Next, select “Payment and transfer”, go to the bottom of the page and select “Parking” under “Car Payments”.
  • Enter your car license plate number. 

A fee is charged for payment.
