The Green Card policy for traveling abroad by car will work in electronic format from 2025: what will change?

Recently, the General Assembly of the Motor Insurance System (MIS), in order to adapt modern technologies, adopted a decision that will allow the use of the international Green Card insurance policy in electronic format in all member countries. The final date for the implementation of this decision has already been approved by the Supervisory Board of the MIS. 


What will change for drivers?


Yes, starting from January 1, 2025, drivers visiting any country in the Green Card area will be allowed to provide their insurance policy in PDF format. However, this will be possible only if the driver comes from a country that sells its Green Cards in PDF format (i.e., the insurance can be purchased online).


At the same time, all member states will be obliged to accept electronic insurance as well as paper insurance, but the National Bureau of each country will be able to decide whether they want to issue insurance policies in electronic format or not. Regular paper forms will also continue to be valid as usual.


Given that Ukrainian drivers can apply for an international Green Card insurance policy online and receive a ready-made insurance policy in PDF format to their email, starting in 2025 they will no longer have to print it out to cross the border.


Previously, there could be difficulties when passing customs control and presenting insurance to police officers due to the lack of uniform rules for using and verifying digital policies. Starting next year, these problems will disappear, as it will be possible to confirm the availability of insurance from any device.

Where to buy a Green Card online?


You can get insurance for traveling abroad in a car with Ukrainian registration online on the Visit Ukraine portal. By purchasing an electronic policy, you not only save your time on trips to the offices of insurance agents, but you can be sure that your insurance will always be at hand. And even if you lose the printed form, you can always restore it, having your insurance in PDF format on your email. Unfortunately, you won't be able to renew an insurance policy issued offline as quickly. 


In addition, online registration is very convenient for those whose insurance expires abroad. After all, you can apply for or renew insurance in just a few minutes from your smartphone.


Remember! Driving without insurance in countries covered by the Green Card agreement is strictly prohibited. For such a violation, drivers face not only a fine of 1000 euros, but also, in some cases, the seizure of the car and a ban on entry into the country.
