    Just received my cit'air sticker for my 2009 Fiat Ducato 130 Multyjet. It's an Orange Cit'air 3 certificate.
    I'm waiting to receive the one for my car now.
    Not that I intend going to Paris in the Motor Home, But a few weeks ago Grenoble adopted the same scheme.
    I have been looking to find out what the color code is for the day to be able to enter either Paris, Lyon or Grenoble; This is the only thing I could find which might be of some help to others on here.https://www.crit-air.fr/en.html
    Then scroll down to "You find here the daily news about the Crit’Air vignettes allowed to drive for: Paris, Lyon, Grenoble"

    Took about ten days. I did both the MH and car at the same time. The MH one came in the post this morning. I received a confirmation email about four days after my application.

    I had a confirmation email when I submitted the application but do they also send one once it's been processed

    How did you reduce the logbook information to fit in the limit of 200 kilobytes, Try as I might I cannot reduce my A4 sheet to anything like that even in grayscale. Because of that it will not progress with the site.

    Having had a quick look at the AA website it seems that more and more towns and cities throughout Europe are introducing some sort of sticker or permit requirement. If my euro tour takes me to several of these countries and cities do I have to make individual applications for a
    • Umweltzonen (Germany)
    • Milieuzones (Netherlands)
    • Lavutslippssone (Norway)
    • Miljozone (Denmark)
    Or as I am effectively just proving compliance with a European emissions standard is there one sticker that's valid for them all. Seems like a massive amount of effort, expense and Bureaucracy doing the same thing over and over again but then again it's going to raise lots of money for them.

    I started off with a pdf from a scan that I had done last year, converted it to a (colour) jpg file, which was 932kb. Opened that file with Microsoft Digital Image 2006 Standard Edition Editor (other image editors are available) and resaved it, going into "Options" to set the quality level to 40 (presumably 40%). It came out (still in colour) at 177kb and uploaded OK.

    My MH is French registered so I just had to send the Carte Gris ( Log book) number. If I remember correctly when I want to reduce the size of a file I used the Paint program on my PC which reduced it to 200 K

    As far as I can see each country has its own badge system. There doesn't seem to be a blanket one that covers all of Europe. I would imagine its going to take Brussels a few years before they get round to it, Mainly because they clock in at 09:00 and go home at 09:30 and it would seem a logical think to do and Brussels doesn't work in a logical way. We will all be driving electric cars by the time Brussels get round to it. Germany has its own badge system. http://www.environmental-badge.co.uk/en/environmental-badge.html

    Can I possibly use a picture taken by my mobile phone as I don't have or want a scanner?

    Just decided that I should apply for a sticker just in case we stray into one of the areas and have scanned my V5 and reduced it to size.
    But, there is nothing on the V5 to indicate that the vehicle is Euro 5 or what the emissions are.
    How will they know what sticker to issue?

    Richard.

    Mobile phone photo should be a Jpeg so providing you can reduce the size to below 211kb it should be OK...........I think. :)

    Date of registration is what most countries go by if no emissions shown.
