Are you traveling to Iceland?

Find out what rules apply when you visit Iceland.

This quick guide to COVID-19 border measures will help you find out what general rules apply when entering Iceland. The information provided here is for guidance only. A final decision on entry is in all cases made at the border. Note: From 27 July vaccinated passangers (and those with prior infection) born in 2004 or earlier must present a negative PCR or antigen test prior to boarding a vessel to Iceland.

Are you fully vaccinated?

To qualify to be exempt from travel restrictions, testing and quarantine requirements on account of vaccination a person must meet the following criteria.

  • Be fully vaccinated with a WHO/EMA approved vaccine

  • The final dose of the vaccine was administered more than fourteen days ago (only one dose required for Janssen/Johnson&Johnson)

    • If you are fully vaccinated, but there are less than 14 days since your last dose, you should answer yes to this question, and go to the next question.

So far there have been very few issues with verification. If you have a certificate that meets the criteria you will be able to enter without any problems. You should be able to trust your certification but it is not possible to ask the Icelandic authorities to pre-approve individual certificates.

NOTE: From 27 July 2021 vaccinated passengers (and those with a prior infection) born in 2004 or earlier, must present a negative PCR or antigen test (not older than 72 hours) prior to boarding a vessel to Iceland.

You may still need a visa to enter Iceland. Visit for further information about visas.
