Comesa Launches Digital Yellow Card Mobile App


COMESA Regional Third-Party Motor Vehicle Insurance (Yellow Card) Scheme has launched a Digital Yellow Card Mobile Application designed to provide access to real-time information to Yellow Card motorists, Law enforcement Agencies, and other stakeholders.

The Application, which is accessible on Google Play Store and Apple iStore, will allow law enforcement Agencies to verify the validity of Digital Yellow Cards and Motorists to report accidents when traveling in foreign countries, get notifications on the status of their Yellow Cards, and call for support during traffic emergencies. This aligns with the Yellow Card Scheme Strategic Plan 2020 – 2024 goal to transform service delivery and enhance customer satisfaction.

The Yellow Card Scheme is a Third-Party Motor Vehicle Insurance Scheme that aims to facilitate the smooth movement of motor vehicles, persons, and goods in the region by establishing a standard system for the settlement of claims arising from inter-state motorists.

The Scheme is currently operational in 13 countries; namely: Burundi, Djibouti, DR Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. In addition, Yellow Card is also issued in Mozambique, South Africa, and will soon be issued in Botswana and South Sudan under the Business to Business (B2B) arrangement to facilitate the smooth movement of vehicles from other regions to the COMESA region.

Yellow Card operations have been digitalized, since November 2018, a move which has led to an unprecedented annual average growth rate of 15%.
