The Green Card Insurance Certificates are checked by the border guards directly at the checkpoints

    From January 2019, at border checkpoints in Ukraine, an automated check of insurance certificates "Green Card" was provided. The hunt for the counterfeit "Green Card" policies owners began due to the fact that, according to insurers, over 30% of the "Green Card" is a fake.
    In the event of road traffic accident, a fictitious card will transfer all pecuniary liability to the driver. And in most European countries, it is unlimited (that is, there are no limits on the maximum compensation which is of you charge). This means that you will have to pay as much as the court held. Even a million!
    Today, Motor (Transport) Insurance Bureau of Ukraine (MTIBU) together with the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine verifies the authenticity of these cards in real time with the help of the system of border control «GART-1». This system has an installed separate service "Software Service "SPSU-MTIBU" to ensure data processing and access to the database of MTIBU» developed by specialists of the Border Control Systems Department JSC "Bancomzvjazok. Thanks to it border guards can check the authenticity of insurance certificates.
    Thanks to "GART-1" and the new software service, border guards can check not only the availability of the "Green Card" in the car, but also its validity. Now crossing the Ukrainian border with a car the driver submits an active insurance contract "Green Card" to the border guard, which is concluded with the insurer, the border guard can in real time request the base of MTIBU through the program service "SBGU-MTIBU". Also on the border foreigners who enter Ukraine are checked.
    MTBU warns Ukrainian drivers from buying fake insurance contracts. Also, we remind you that the law provides a fine for forging documents up to 70 tax-free minimum incomes, or arrest for a term of 6 months, or restraint of liberty for a term of 3-5 years, or imprisonment for up to 5 years.
