The International Motor Insurance Card, formerly known as the “Green Card”, serves as evidence when you enter a foreign country that the vehicle specified on the card has sufficient liability insurance cover. There is no insurance cover in those countries whose abbreviations are struck through on the card.
Since 1 January 2020, it has been permitted to print the International Motor Insurance Card not only on green, but also on white paper. As a result, we will be issuing our policyholders with the International Motor Insurance Card on white paper with immediate effect.
Print out your own International Motor Insurance Card
You can also find the International Motor Insurance Card in your account in the myBaloise customer portal and can print the document out yourself at any time.
Please note that the document is only valid if the following requirements are met:
- Paper format at least A6, no bigger than A4.
- Paper colour white or green with black writing. Other colours are prohibited and render the document invalid!
- Flawless printout, i.e. if the document features stripes or other printing flaws, you must print it out again.
- The reverse side of the document must be completely empty with no text on it.
The International Motor Insurance Card is only valid if it is printed out. You cannot present the International Motor Insurance Card on the screen of a mobile device!
