You can also contact the TÜV in Germany (cheaper)

Re: ? official site to purchase German air control sticker

The best option I found was to get it from the city of Berlin:
https://www.berlin.de/labo/mobilitae...shop.85047.php
Not the fastest, but pretty cheap. Only sent the Swiss registration, no CoC needed.

It’s TCS, so the premium is due to the fact that a Swiss person has licked the envelope the sticker is shipped in...

Re: ? official site to purchase German air control sticker

Is one valid for all cities? Last time I went to Munich and Frankfurt on one trip - without a valid one (it was on the last owner's number-plate).

As the number-plate no. is written on it - is it valid as long as I have the car I stuck it on it? No yearly thing?

I might do this again sometime soon, I'm thinking to do it the legal way this time.

Just another great reason to never go to Germany!

Yes, it’s a federal system. Restrictions might be different in different cities but as long as your sticker is green are you ok.

The Belgians are doing far worse with obscure online registration systems and higher fines...

Re: ? official site to purchase German air control sticker

Just find the nearest ATU when you cross the border into Germany. I've bought them at the ATU in Rheinfelden and Weil am Rhein, takes a few minutes and costs €6.99, just make sure you have your car's grey card with you.

Thanks. And a one-time-per-life-time of the car thing? (Or wind shield at least )

Yes. It’s based on the standard ( say „euro 6“) of your engine- no actual tests... that’s why you can get it by mail.
