Can I apply for a green card digitally?
Nowadays, the green card is available digitally from almost every insurer. Fewer and fewer insurers send the green card by mail, but make sure you can download it digitally. You get the green card automatically after taking out a car insurance policy. Your insurer or intermediary will let you know where you can download the green card. You can then print the green card yourself. In the Netherlands you are not obliged to keep the green card in the car. If you go abroad with the car, however, in some countries it is mandatory to have it with you.

Digital green card not accepted in all countries
In some European countries it is compulsory to carry the original green card. A digital green card is not accepted. This is the case, for example, in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iran, Macedonia, Morocco, Moldavia, Montenegro, Russia, Serbia, Tunisia, Turkey and Ukraine. If you are driving your car to or through one of these countries, you will need an original green card. In Bulgaria, an original green card is not compulsory, but recommended.
Requesting a green card digitally: how does it work?
Most insurers therefore no longer send the green card by post, but send it digitally via e-mail. You can then print the green card yourself and save it. It is often also possible to download the card from your personal environment on the insurer's website. You will automatically receive the green card after taking out your car insurance and every year, as long as the insurance is renewed.
