1st January 2021 marks the end of the UK’s transition period for withdrawal from the European Union (EU). There is still no absolute certainty as to whether all motorists will require Green Cards when travelling off-island but given the uncertainty, if you are going to be travelling in the European Economic Area (EEA) from 1st January we strongly recommend that you carry a Green Card and have put measures in place to ensure we are able to deliver this service efficiently.
This does not include any trips to the UK or the other Channel Islands.
You should apply for a Green Card at least a week before you travel – the simplest way is through our website or telephone us.
As negotiations develop over the coming weeks, we will continue to update you with further information and/or actions you may need to take as soon as we can.
Drivers travelling to certain countries in the EU or EEA may also need to obtain an International Driving Permit – for clarification please visit:
Driving in Europe (gov.je) if you are a Jersey resident or –
Driving Abroad – States of Guernsey (gov.gg) if you are a Guernsey or Alderney resident.
