Latest News: Obligatory quarantine for travelers from high-risk areas will stop being applicable from 1 June (SVI, 24.05.2021). More travelers are now subject to entry restrictions as government updates criteria to determine level of COVID-19 risk (Schengen Visa Info, 10.05.2021).

International Restrictions:

Iceland adopts its own national classification of risk areas, hence travel restrictions for Iceland are not based on the common "EU Traffic Lights" map.

From 1 May 2021, travel restrictions will be based on the EU Traffic Lights map. From that time, travellers from low-risk areas (green and yellow) will be exempt from quarantine measures if they present a negative PCR result at the border.

All countries and territories of the world are currently classified as risk areas.

Is a coronavirus test required?

All travellers are subject to the requirement for a pre-departure negative PCR test.
The test must be taken within 72 hours prior to departure.

Additionally, all passengers arriving in Iceland must undergo two more PCR tests: one upon arrival, and another one 5-6 days later.

Those who test negative in the second PCR test are no longer submitted to special precautions. Those who test positive must self-isolate.

Children born in 2005 and later are exempted.
