Insurance here as far as non-residents are concerned is limited to hire cars I think, and once you have residency, you must have a local driving licence in order to rent or lease a car - or insure one you bought.
Are you sure the problem is that you are not in possession of a local driving licence and therefore cannot insure a privately owned vehicle, regardless of country of origin ?
