I will travel abroad with my vehicle do I need the ||Green Card||?

The “Green Card” is not necessary to prove the compulsory insurance coverage in the countries that make up the European Economic Area, but it is necessary for other countries, such as Morocco.

Can the nationality of a foreign vehicle be known by its plate number?

In OFESAUTO we have developed a tool that helps to locate the possible nationality of a foreign vehicle through its registration.

Green Card

What is the Green Card?

The so-called “Green Card” system is designed to help international vehicle transit and to guarantee that victims of car accidents where vehicles of different countries take part, are covered. The Green Card system is designed to fulfill two main goals:

  • To ease the vehicle’s transit through international borders by using an internationally accepted document which is proof of an insurance cover.
  • To guarantee that victims in an accident caused by a foreign vehicle are covered.
