Withdrawal of membership of the Israeli Insurance Bureau – modification of the IMIC

As it was announced during the last Annual General Assembly of the COB, Israel will no longer participate in the Green Card system as of 1st January 2022. At that date, the Israeli Bureau will no longer be a member of the Council of Bureaux.

Israel’s departure from the Green Card system will result in the IMIC model to be changed. The country code ‘IL’ in box 8 of the Green Card will disappear.

What do I need to circulate in Israel with a Spanish vehicle or in Spain with an Israeli vehicle?

As of 1st January 2022, IMICs issued under the authority of the Israeli Bureau may no longer be accepted. You will need a Border Insurance

In several forums we have talked about the question (or better said our “vision”) of what the format of the “Green Card” support document would be in the future.

  As everybody knows, what is colloquially called “Green Card” is (in theory) an International Certification proving the existence of a third party liability insurance coverage. This document is required to travel on certain countries

  Currently this certificate is a green paper document containing a specific content and with standardized measures..

  The reflection that we make is the following: should, in the XXI century, a document printed on a green paper, be the valid proof of insurance coverage for a vehicle?
