You can stay longer, but for a fee.

I was going with the following:

parking:condition:ticket parking:condition:free:maxstay=30 minutes

is that Ok?

EDIT: It's a underground parking so obv, I will add parking=underground

According to the wiki, there is a way to tag something like "free for the first x hours".

I'll copy the example from the wiki (I assume using 0.5 instead of 2 would work regarding the free 30 minutes):

fee=no + fee:conditional=yes @ (stay > 2 hours) - parking with stay up to two hours free

Happy mapping! Max

The current in use tagging scheme doesn't have a way to model "first 30minutes" free or similar schemes.

It doesn't make sense to try and use tags from a long forgotten proposal that are additionally rather at odds with how tagging has developed over the last five years.

You can naturally propose a way for tagging this but IMHO simply indicating fee=yes (to distinguish it from really free parking) is likely enough for a first cut (and add the 30 minute free in a note tag).

Parkings with "first X minutes free" are very common, and it never occured to me to tag them anything else than fee=yes.

We generally don't tag the price details of any ware or service in OSM, notably because they change so easyly and can get quite complicated. IMHO this also applies to time-limited free parking. Also, it makes little sense to only tag part of the offer ("15 min free" instead of "15 min free, then 1€ for the first 45min, then 1€ per hour, max stay 10 hours").

I would add the add the 30 minute free in a description tag, since this info matters for users - not just mappers (which note is for).
