What is a Green Card?

The Green Card is a certificate issued by your insurance company as proof that your vehicle has a valid motor liability insurance. When travelling outside Finland, you must present the Green Card in the event of a road accident and to border authorities, if necessary.

Print out a Green Card for your vehicle

You can easily print out your own Green Card in the op.fi service and on OP-mobile. The Green Card must always be printed on paper. An electronic Green Card on your smartphone is not accepted by the authorities as valid.
