I currently have Swiss insurance with US plates. Using this forum, found a 3rd party that issues Zurich Insurance on my vehicle. Since I have Swiss insurance, does that change my options?


This "Zurich Insurance" is the mentioned frontier insurance? Because as far as I am aware that would be the only legal and valid option on US plates.
The proof of insurance looks like this one here:

The usual Swiss third party liability insurance can normally not be issued on foreign plates. If they did anyway, you must have the Green Insurance card (these day it can also be white hence also call International Insurance Card)
It look like this:

If you have neither you can only drive to the inspection. You can get in big trouble in case of an police check, but specially in case of an accident if have neither of those documents. If you have either of the two documents all is good.

Edit: Looks like Swiss insurances can issue 3rd party liability insurances and Green Cards for US plates, but not for cars on plates from other Green Card states https://www.englishforum.ch/insuranc...-vehicles.html
