The Insurance Supervisor recently released new rules that must be observed when issuing temporary insurance certificates and/or international insurance certificates such as green cards. Under the new regulation insurers must ascertain that the premium is paid prior to issue of any certificate. The payment will be verified through complex and rigorous policy issue control protocols.

The green card must be valid within the same period that the premium is paid. Those companies that have already issued temporary certificates are not entitled to reject coverage based on the existence of outstanding premiums.
