Russian Green CardThird-party liability car insurance

Since 2003, every transport vehicle driving in the Russian Federation must have an insurance policy covering third-party liability, which is named Russian Green Card and it covers claims for vehicle damage, personal injuries or legal costs against the driver of it. Russia joined the "International Car Insurance System" in the beginning of 2009, which means that most of the European "Green-card" insurances are also valid in the Russia Federation.

Since June 1, 2023, Russia's participation in the green card system no longer applies. As a result, foreign drivers have no longer coverage (automatically) anymore. Foreigners who want to enter the Russian Federation have to take care of a Russian car insurance yourself.

A third-party car insurance is named OSAGO in Russia. Click the button "Request a Quote" below for an online request form or send us an email and we will send you a form in MS Word that you can complete and return with details from the owner and the car itself. Thereafter we inform you about the costs of the insurance, as it depends on the power, mileage and age of the car. After your approval, we take out the insurance and send you the policy by email.

Fully comprehensive insurance (CASCO), which also protects you against possible damage to your own car in the event of an accident, or in the event of fire or theft, may not be taken out for foreign cars according to Russian legislation.

Russian Green CardFrequently asked questions

A Russian Green Card is a Russian Third-Party Liability insurance for transport vehicles, named OSAGO. In case the driver caused an accident, the Russian Green Card will cover the damage to the car of the victims.

Unfortunately, a Russian green card does not provide CASCO coverage. Russian insurance companies do not insure foreign cars with Casualty and Collision coverage (CASCO) due to Russian legislation, they only offer Third-Party Liability insurance for transport vehicles (OSAGO).
Alternative names for a CASCO car insurance are: Fully Comprehensive, All-inclusive or All Risk insurance for cars and other transportation vehicles.

Everybody who is elder than 18 years and has a driving license valid for the transport vehicle to insure. After agreement you will receive an official insurance policy (OSAGO) quickly and conveniently by e-mail or in any messenger of your choice. It is valid throughout the Russian Federation.

All transport vehicles that are allowed to drive on public roads must be insured in Russia. Greencard Online offers Russian Green Cards for cars (with or without trailer/caravan), motorcycles, (mini)buses (but not coaches), trucks, campers and camper trucks.

The Russian Green Card is valid for transport vehicles registered in private names or in the name of a company. The Russian Green Card for company-owned vehicles became much more expensive than private vehicles since December 2023.
Note: If the driver is not the owner of the vehicle, he will need a letter of consent from the owner. Official authorities may require this.

The price of a Russian Green Card insurance depends on many factors: the owner of the vehicle (private or company), type of vehicle, power of vehicle, age of vehicle, mileage and duration of the insurance. Just request a quote. It is for free. We inform you shorty with the price and you decide to accept or deny it.

The Russian Green Card will be registered on the name of the owner of the vehicle. There are no names of drivers mentioned on the insurance policy. So there is no limitation in number of drivers anymore.
Note: If the driver is not the owner of the vehicle, he will need a letter of consent from the owner. Official authorities may demand it.

The Russian Green Card is valid throughout the Russian Federation including Kaliningrad region. Within the validity period of the insurance, the vehicle may cross the Russian borders unlimited. Also the drivers of the vehicle may be changed.

We can deliver a Russian Green Card within a day, but not earlier than two months before the start date of the insurance. Our advice is to order in time, as we are not always in the office due to our activities as a travel organization. So don't wait until the last minute.

Not really, but you can contact us and we send you a new policy valid for a new period. We can do that within 30 minutes.

You can check the authenticity of your policy on the official website of the “Russian Association of Automobile Insurers”: In the “MTPL POLICY DETAILS” column, select your insurance OSAGO serial number, enter your policy number, and enter the policy start date. Press the right button to start searching. A summary of your policy will appear.
