There are a number of low emission zones, emergency pollution schemes and access regulations in French cities. Sometimes the low emission zones affect delivery vehicles only.

The low emission zones require a sticker called Crit'Air (Certificats qualité de l’air = air quality certificates) which are mandatory for French and foreign vehicles.


There are emergency schemes during times of high pollution. The French law says that they may be possible in any city, department or region. The cities on our list are the cities which have ordinances allowing for pollution schemes (so have activate schemes, or may activate them), and we outline the regional schemes and the information on them.

For vehicles registered in France, the French LEZ stickers can be bought here.

Stickers for foreign vehicles can be bought in English, French, German or Spanish. These stickers can be bought by those outside France. Please allow enough time for delivery.
Please note: Buying stickers from some websites can cost up to 5 times the price, so check carefully, and use official sales websites.
