As La Voix du Nord explains, like cars registered in France, motorists owning a vehicle with a foreign plate (and therefore including Belgians) must have a Crit’air sticker to drive . As a reminder, the vehicles are classified from 1 to 6, according to their CO2 emissions. In the event of episodes of heavy pollution, certain categories of cars may be banned from circulation.

This is the case, for example, in the Lille metropolis where pollution peaks are regularly observed. “The Crit’air sticker for a vehicle with a foreign registration can be checked by the police”, mentions . In short, you are subject to the same rules as French drivers, under penalty of a fine of 68 euros.

The Crit’Air sticker is mandatory for driving in low mobility emission zones established by local authorities or for driving when the prefect introduces differentiated traffic during pollution episodes

How to get it?

To receive your Crit’air vignette, you must go to the website of the Ministry of Ecological Transition to order it. It costs 3.11 euros. Please note: an additional 1.40 euro for postage is added to this price. You will need your gray card. After this step, you will have a form to fill out with the country of registration, the category of vehicle, or even the source of fuel. Then, the sticker is sent to the address mentioned on the gray card. You will then receive an invoice by email. In the event of an inspection, this can be used as proof, pending your future vignette.
