Re: IMPORTANT Zurich announcement about insuring foreign registered motor vehicles

I think I have found the relevant law, if you have a car on foreign plates you need a "Grenzversicherung/Frontier insurance":

Art. 44,Art. 45, and Art. 46 VVV

But it does not forbid the extension of the insurance to other states than Switzerland. According to the Swiss National Bureau of Insurance this insurance is valid in all EEA states and is managed through Zurich. It is only available at customs offices at the border in these designated inland offices. It is very expensive and will cost you CHF 1200.- for just six month and will cover third party liability only.

There is a one month cover for CHF 250.- (CHF 100.- for motorcylcle). This could for ex. be used to drive a newly bought second hand UK car with valid MOT and UK license plate to Switzerland.

VVV: SR 741.31 Verkehrsversicherungsverordnung vom 20. November 1959
