Iceland and COVID-19

If you have any questions about COVID-19 please find updated information below.


All information, developments, and advice about Iceland and COVID-19 can be found at the website of the Directorate of Health and the Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management as well as the designated COVID-19 website for Iceland maintained by these institutions.

Iceland is open

Iceland has eased travel restrictions and is open to passengers inside the Schengen Area. Passengers arriving in Iceland can choose to be tested for COVID-19 (free of charge until July 1) or quarantine for two weeks. From July 1, passengers will pay ISK 11.000 for a single test but ISK 9.000 if paid in advance. Children born in 2005 or later are exempt from both testing and quarantine.
This process was designed to prioritise safety, but also to work for visitors and Icelanders, based on Chief Epidemiologist’s medical and scientific guidance. As these are unprecedented times, the easing of travel restrictions for passengers outside the Schengen Area is constantly being evaluated.

All travellers will be strongly encouraged to follow precautionary guidelines, such as frequent hand-washing and social distancing, and to respect regulations in place, including the ban on social gatherings of more than 200 people. 

Newest updates on the matter can always found on the Government of Iceland's official website or the Official website for Iceland and COVID-19.
