Following the UK decision to leave the European Union (EU), since 1 January 2021 a valid Green Card has been required for all vehicles and trailers travelling to the European Economic Area (EEA).

From 2 August 2021, the European Commission has agreed that the UK are now able to participate in the “Green Card Free Circulation Area” (GCFCA)*, removing the need to carry Green Cards for all vehicles from the UK who are entering these countries.

It may take time for processes to be updated across the GCFCA, especially at borders and ports and our key insurer partners will therefore continue to issue Green Cards at your request until the 30 September 2021. Their focus is always to ensure you have the necessary documents to take vehicles overseas.

If you are planning a trip overseas in the near future please contact your account executive in good time.
