Covid-19 information

Iceland is doing well in its efforts to fight the pandemic. Currently almost half of the population aged 16 and over have either been fully vaccinated or received their first dose and plans are that Iceland will reach the 75% mark before the beginning of July, at which point most or all restrictions will be lifted within Iceland.

Travel restrictions have also started to be lifted and currently people with valid vaccine certificate or a certificate of previous infection are allowed entry into the country.

However, please note that non-essential travel from high-risk countries listed on remains forbidden, even if people have vaccine certificates or previous infections. Several people have been turned away when trying to enter the country from such countries. This list is updated by the government based on the infection rates of countries and can change without much or any notice. Please make sure to check the list here close to your departure date. An English version of the list is on the page, just scroll about half way down the page.

For further information on travel restrictions to Iceland please refer to This is the official Covid-19 information page from the government of Iceland. There you can find information on all things related to Covid-19 and links to other relevant websites. Please check the site often since travel restrictions and covid related rules have changed often.
