I'm developing a project that needs the coordinates (latitude and longitude) for millions of addresses.

I'm planning to query these to nominatim, but I suppose I'll be banned after several requests and my process will be interrupted.

Is there a way to gain access to "unlimited" nominatim queries (only some xml attributes like longitude and latitude). A plan price for it?

Thanks. Joan.

No, the OSMF doesn't sell server access, but software and data are free, so you could set up your own Nominatim instance on your own server and run any number of queries you want. If it's just a one-time thing you could rent a big cloud server for a few weeks and run Nominatim there.

If you're looking for commercial providers of OSM-based geocoding services, check out the list at

You might also want to consider Photon, which is easier to set up than Nominatim and offers ready-made database dumps:
