We're building in a transitional period
To ensure a smooth transition, the government decided that both the 'green card' and the 'white card' will be accepted as valid insurance certificates until 31 December 2021. After this transitional period, only the digital and paper 'white cards' will remain valid.
The transition at KBC Brussels
