14 March 2022 —
In order to ensure fulfilment of the insurance obligation and to support the Ukrainian refugees, the Estonian Traffic Insurance Fund (LKF) announced that it temporarily bears costs of the Estonian border insurance premium.

A policyholder does not have to pay an insurance premium for a border insurance contract if all the following conditions are met:

  • it is a border insurance contract concluded for a car temporarily used in Estonia or entering Estonia with a Ukrainian number plate
  • the policyholder is a citizen of Ukraine
  • the border insurance contract is concluded for up to three months
The exception described above applies for a limited period. The LKF will decide on termination of the exceptional situation if the circumstances change.
