If bringing your own vehicle to the island, please note that drivers from the territory of the EU should not be intercepted at the point of entry in Cyprus for proof of insurance cover, as it is presumed that the driver and car are covered by insurance in the country that issued their license plates, even if they may not be so covered.

In the latter case, the International Insurance Bureau of the driver’s country will be held responsible to compensate the claimant as a result of the Guarantee Agreement in force. (Unified Agreement or Internal Regulations).

If a foreign visitor brings a motor vehicle bearing a registration plate not belonging to one of the EU territory countries into Cyprus , then the Cyprus Authorities should check whether the foreign motorist has a valid Green Card In force for Cyprus. For further information please contact:
