Green Card

What is a Green Card?

The Green Card is ordered from your insurance company and certifies that your car or other vehicle has a valid motor liability insurance. When driving outside Finland, you must present the Green Card in the event of a road accident and to border authorities when entering the country, if necessary. 

Order a Green Card easily in the service, OP-mobile or from the number 0303 0303. As a Pohjola Insurance private or corporate customer, ordering a Green Card is free of charge, and you will receive the card by post within about one week.

When do I need a Green Card?

Vehicles registered in Finland can be driven freely in the Nordic countries without a Green Card. A Green Card is also not mandatory within the EU or EEA. However, we recommend that you order a Green Card to take with you whenever you are planning on travelling outside the Nordic countries.

The Green Card is mandatory in the following countries: Russia, Albania, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Israel, Iran, North Macedonia (FYROM), Morocco, Moldova, Montenegro, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, and Belarus. The Finnish Motor Insurers' Centre recommends bringing along a Green Card also when travelling to the United Kingdom.

If you are visiting any of these countries without a valid Green Card, you must purchase so-called border insurance when entering the country.

When visiting countries other than Green Card partner countries, you must purchase valid motor liability insurance when entering the country.

Legislation and claims practices concerning motor liability insurance abroad may differ considerably from those in Finland. A voluntary international third-party motor liability insurance can cover situations in which a motor vehicle driver is liable for bodily injury or material damage caused to a third party under the country's motor liability insurance act or equivalent.
