Russian green cards may stop operating outside the Russian Federation on July 1, Izvestia has found.

Russian “green cards” may no longer be valid abroad

Starting next month, those traveling by car will need to purchase a local OSAGO policy when crossing the border. The rule will work even when you visit “friendly” countries.

As it became known in the publication, most countries are in favor of terminating the membership of the Russian Federation in the Green Card office. Countries are supposed to be able to suspend participation as early as a meeting on June 30.

Since the beginning of this month, Russian Green Cards have not worked in the European Union, Great Britain and Switzerland, Sovcombank Insurance reported. But they can still be driven in Turkey, Belarus, Azerbaijan, Serbia and some other countries.

At the VSK insurer, plans to exclude Russia from the agreement are linked to the general policy of sanctions against the country. Also, this step may be due to difficulties in cross-border agreements with the Russian Federation.

The Russian Union of Automobile Insurers has already reacted to the upcoming restrictions. The organization is negotiating with “friendly” states on the mutual recognition of cards. This format is now working with Belarus, and may soon be introduced with Azerbaijan and Turkey. In this case, a new international system may appear, the Blue Card.

“Green Card” is an international standard insurance policy, it insures the civil liability of the automobile. The policy is valid in the territory of 48 member countries of the office. Russia became part of the system in 2009.
