Movement restrictions

National movement restrictions: Partially banned

Restrictive measures mandatory between 25 May 2020 to 21 June 2020

The ban on gatherings applies to activities where more than 200 people come together. At all smaller gatherings, it must also be ensured to have the opportunity to maintain a distance of 2 meters from other people whenever practicable. The distance will be interpreted more as a societal norm and courtesy for individuals who are vulnerable or have a preference for such distancing.

Individuals that have been in high-risk arias for the past 14 days or have been in contact with a COVID-19 infected individual need to be quarantined for 14 days from last possible exposure/transmission.

International movement restrictions: Partially banned

Restrictive measures mandatory between 15 June 2020 to 01 July 2020

Iceland will continue to implement the EU/Schengen travel restrictions, which have now been extended until 1 July. EU, EFTA, and UK nationals will continue to be able to enter Iceland under the condition that they preregister and undergo either a test or a two-week quarantine upon arrival. While the EU/Schengen travel restrictions have now been extended until 1 July, the exemptions have been broadened, allowing students and experts from third countries to enter Iceland. In general, these restrictions apply to foreign nationals other than those from the EU, EFTA, and the UK.

As of 20 March 2020, foreign nationals – except EU/EEA, EFTA or UK nationals – are not allowed to enter Iceland. This advice is valid until 15 June 2020. The quarantine requirement in Iceland applies to people, regardless of nationality, arriving from countries and areas defined with high risk of infection. At present, this applies to all countries except the Faroe Islands and Greenland.

On 5th June the Government announced that all passengers arriving in Iceland from 15 June can choose to be tested for Covid-19 (free of charge for the first two-week period) or quarantine for two weeks. From 1st July, passengers will pay ISK 15000 for a single test. Children born in 2005 or later are exempt from both, testing and quarantine.

Icelandic residents are advised not to travel abroad. The Minister of Justice has announced that travel restrictions that came into effect on March 20 will be extended until 15 June 2020, in accordance with the EU Commission recommendation to the Schengen Member States. This decision is made in light of limited availability of flights and measures taken by other states, including border closures and quarantine requirements, which may impact Icelanders abroad. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs encourages allIcelandic citizens traveling abroad to register with the Consular Section – www.utn.is/covid19. Icelandic residents abroad, whether for work, study or travel, are further advised to check their health insurance and access to health care. All Icelandic citizens returning to Iceland from abroad are required to undergo 14-day quarantine. As of 24. April, this also applies to all foreign visitors to Iceland along with updated travel restrictions to Iceland.

Schools/Univercity closure

Schools/Univ. closure: Open

Restrictive measures mandatory between 04 May 2020 to TBD

UPDATE 14 April 2020: at a press conference on 14 April, the Prime Minister, the Minister of Health, and the Minister of Justice introduced steps to lift the restrictions currently in place in Iceland due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The Minister of Health announced her decision to ease restrictions on larger gatherings and limitations on schools and preschools. As of 4 May:
– Schools and preschools will operate normally.
– High schools and universities will reopen, but the 50-person limit and two-meter social distancing measures apply.

UPDATE 3rd April 2020: Minister of Health prolongs ban on gatherings and closures of schools from the 13th of April to the 4th of May.
Upper secondary schools and universities closed; elementary schools in operation as long as they can ensure no more than 20 pupils in each classroom and other preventive measures; kindergartens open but must ensure small groups, separated as far as possible (situation valid from March 16 until April 13 at midnight).

On March 2020 the following additional measures have been communicated:
– Children’s parents and guardians simultaneously reduce the number of people in their children’s contact network outside of school in order to avoid working against these measures.
– Schoolmates who are not in the same group in school (the same class) should not interact closely outside of school.
– If the children are mature enough to obey instructions on reduced contact with friends, it is possible to allow them to play together. If they do, they must not engage in any play that involves touching one another physically, or sharing toys or equipment that they touch with their bare hands.
– Families should bear in mind that if children interact frequently with friends or relatives from other schools or school groups, there will be contact between groups that would otherwise remain separate. Such contact should be avoided as much as possible.
Concerning households where some members are in quarantine and others are not:
– Children who have the maturity and capacity to take care of their own hygiene and keep the required distance from quarantined parents and from their schoolmates may continue to attend school. It is very important to observe proper hygiene; for instance, to use bathroom facilities.
– Parents of older children who are in quarantine and can maintain the required distance from children during their quarantine may continue to work if remote working is not an option.
– The entire household must quarantine itself if the children do not have the maturity or capacity to follow the instructions that apply to quarantine measures. Another solution in such cases would be for the household members who are not in quarantine to move elsewhere during the quarantine period.
