• One of the EEA countries has been crossed over on the green card. 
  • The details of the green card do not agree with those of the vehicle.
  • The card details are incomplete.
  • The card has expired.
  • The presented green card has been issued by an insurance company that is not entitled to do so.


In the above cases, frontier motor liability insurance must be obtained for the vehicle either from Customs or from the Finnish Motor Insurers' Centre. The minimum period of validity of frontier motor liability insurance policies is 30 days.

If the vehicle does not have a valid green card or frontier motor liability insurance, the authorities may prevent the vehicle from being used and levy sanctions due to non-insurance to the owner/keeper of the vehicle.
