Gastronomy trade – apply for provisional permit

Anyone who wishes to take over a gastronomic business requiring a permit from another operator may be permitted to operate the gastronomic business on a provisional and revocable basis until the final gastronomy permit is issued.

You operate a gastronomic business if, in a standing trade, you

  1. serve drinks for consumption on the spot (pub management) or
  2. serve prepared food for consumption on the premises (catering),
if the establishment is accessible to everyone or to certain groups of persons.

Permission is required for the gastronomic business only if alcoholic beverages are served. If only non-alcoholic beverages and/or prepared meals are served, the restaurant business does not require a permit and you do not need a temporary restaurant permit.

The provisional gastronomy permit should not be issued for a period longer than three months. The period can be extended if there is an important reason.

Responsible authority

The application for a provisional gastronomy permit must be submitted to the public order office in whose district your business premises are located.

Only 1 application must be submitted for the provisional and the final gastronomy permit. During the examination of the licensing requirements in the preliminary procedure, the gastronomy can already be operated. If you intend to change the type of operation or premises of the existing gastronomy, the gastronomy may only be operated to the extent of the previous permit during the period of the provisional gastronomy permit.
