The Green Card Free Circulation Area
28 July 2021
On the 30 June 2021 the European Commission announced that the UK would be able to participate in the Green Card Free Circulation Area (GCFA), which comprises all 30 European Economic Area (EEA) countries as well as Andorra, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia and Switzerland.
This takes effect on the 2nd August 2021 and will remove the requirement for Green Cards to be issued for travel within these countries.
Following the MIB’s recommendation, most insurers will continue to issue Green Cards up until September 2021 to ensure a smooth transition period.
If you have any queries regarding the issuance of Green Cards please contact your Wilsons account handler, or your insurer directly.
