The main objective of the COMESA Yellow Card Scheme is to provide a minimum guarantee of compensation for third party road accident victims, as required by the law in force in the territories being visited or transiting through. Additionally and by design, the COMESA Yellow Card Scheme also seeks to achieve the following:
- Facilitate in the smooth flow and movement of vehicles between member States.
- Provides a common system for claims settlement across borders of all member states participating in the Scheme.
- Provide to the Insurance industry in the Region, a wider market for business opportunities
- Work as an instrument of regional integration and the realization of common insurance practices and laws for the common benefit of the motoring public.
