Traveling to Iceland

Located in the North Atlantic Ocean, Iceland is a stunning island with less than 400,00 inhabitants making it the most sparsely populated country in Europe. However, what it lacks in population makes up for some of the most stunning and breathtaking scenery in arguably the world.

Iceland offers you the chance to see the visually outstanding Northern Lights and offers some of the most tranquil spots in various locations around the country, from the monumental glaciers to the fumarole fields of Namafjall; you can even indulge in some whale watching on your trip too.

Iceland COVID-19 Travel Updates

Iceland is now open to all US visitors as of 6th April 2021 who meet the following criteria;

  • Completed the full vaccination of one of the following vaccines – AstraZeneca, Janssen (Johnson & Johnson), Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech
  • An antibody test proving a previous COVID-19 infection or PCR test older than 14 days.

Visitors must pre-register before traveling. Travelers will need to present an official paper or electronic COVID-19 vaccine certificate that includes the traveler’s name, date of birth, date, location of vaccination, vaccine administered, and the manufacturer and batch lot or number.

Vaccinated U.S. travelers will be required to take a free test upon arrival at the airport, according to the amended April 6, 2021 requirements.

If you do not meet the criteria, then you will be required to fill out a pre-registration form and get a PCR test upon arrival at the airport. A second COVID-19 test is then required four to five days after arrival, and during this time, you must self-quarantine until both of the tests confirm a negative result.
