Green card

The green card – which you may obtain at your motor third party liability insurance company – is proof of your vehicle being insured against liability. The green card guarantees that your insurance company covers any damage you may be held liable for in connection with an accident outside of Denmark.

 

Countries to which it is not necessary to bring the green Card

 

All countries which are members of the EU, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, Croatia, Andorra and Serbia (Serbia has only joined the agreement from the end of 2011; therefore, we advise the drivers that go to Serbia to bring the green card along anyway).

 

Countries to which the green card must be brought along

 

Albania, Azerbaijan (pr. 01.01.2016), Bosnia-Hercegovina, Belarus, Iran, Israel, Macedonia, Morocco, Moldavia, Montenegro, Russia, Turkey and the Ukraine.

 

Kosovo does not accept the green card

 

Please note that the authorities in Kosovo do not accept the green card and that no green card bureau exists in Kosovo. It is therefore important that you take out a motor third party liability insurance at the border – otherwise you may risk being detained in connection with a motor accident.

Worth knowing - about Brexit


DFIM recommends that as a motorist in a Danish registered car in the UK bring the green card

 

Now that the UK as per 31 January 2020, de facto having resigned from the EU, a transitional period is now scheduled for 31 December 2020, with EU law still in force.

 

Official statements indicate that as a motorist when driving to the UK, you must be able to document insurance coverage on your motor vehicle. DFIM therefore recommends that you bring the green card that can document such an insurance relationship.

 

As regards damage under the Motor Insurance Directive, these are still covered until the end of the transitional period on 31 December 2020.

 

DFIM has entered into a series of bilateral agreements with its British sister organization, MIB UK, to ensure that pending cases can still be finalized after the end of the transitional period.
