  • In order to reach its goals TMIB is authorised to make agreements and cooperate with any domestic or foreign establisment, insurance company.

Accidents in Turkey:

Provided that there is a valid Green Card TMIB undertakes the duties of a third party liability insurer for foreign motor vehicles. For that reason in case of losses in Turkey involving foreign motor vehicles the loss can be reported to TMIB who can be claimed against like a third party liability insurer. The claim is evaluated and settled within the compulsory motor third party liability insurance applicable in Turkey.

Capacity to be Sued

As far as TMIB undertook the obligations of a third party liability insurer it can be directly sued.Apart from TMIB a lawsuit may be directed against the registered owner and insurer of the negligent vehicle.

Authority to Serve a Writ

TMIB can only accept service of a writ to itself and the owner of the Green Card but not on behalf of the other insured persons. This results directly from Article No 4 of the UA which only empowers the Bureau to accept service on behalf of the owner of the Green Card.
