Entry into Lithuania by road
We are due to set off in two weeks for a Baltic states trip - expecting 7 weeks or so. Has anybody crossed into Lithuania by road? My reason for asking is that both the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and the Lithuanian Embassy websites say that a Green Card is required. My insurance is certainly valid, and Lithuania are signed up to the scheme whereby a Green Card is not supposed to be needed - but never-the-less, it appears to be a requirement. Last time I asked my insurance company for one (SAGA) they said we don't do them any more, since we only extend cover to countries where they aren't required. Confirmation of required cover is on the back of your Certificate - that should suffice - they said. However, I'm not sure I'll be lucky enough to get a border guard who speaks Spanish, French or Italian!
Has anybody been over the Lithuanian Border by road, and if so did you need a Green Card?
