Travel Alert: Iceland (September 7, 2021)

Travel Alert

Iceland is extending measures for international entry restrictions and some domestic measures in order to slow the spread of COVID-19, as of September 7, 2021. All international travelers, including Icelandic citizens and vaccinated individuals, must pre-register before arrival in Iceland. International arrivals must present a negative result to a PCR or rapid antigen test taken no more than 72 hours prior to departure. Unvaccinated travelers must additionally submit to testing upon arrival, undergo five days of self-isolation, and take another test at the end of that period. Returning citizens and residents, irrespective of vaccination status, are required to undergo a second PCR or rapid antigen test within 48 hours after the arrival. These travelers will not be required to quarantine until after test results are known. Children born in 2005 or later are exempt from all entry restrictions.

Vaccines must be approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or the World Health Organization (WHO), and the last dose must have been administered no less than 14 days ago.

Under most circumstances, travelers from EU and Schengen Area states and those from Albania, Australia, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, Macao, New Zealand, North Macedonia, Serbia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and the US can enter Iceland. Most travelers from other locations will remain prohibited from entering with some exceptions, including freight and transport workers, immediate family members of Icelandic residents, diplomats, students, individuals conducting necessary work, and persons traveling for urgent family reasons.
