Important information due to COVID-19

The Icelandic authorities require all arrivals from risk areas to undergo quarantine. All passengers traveling to Iceland are required to fill out a pre-registration form before arrival, which includes their contact information, address during their quarantine in Iceland and a declaration of health. Children born 2005 or later are exempt from pre-registration, testing and quarantine related to travel. Quarantine duration after travel from a risk area is 14 days but by undergoing a test for COVID-19 on arrival to Iceland and again after 5 days, this period may be shortened (see for details). A fee is charged for the test, payable on registration or at the border when the first sample is collected. The 2nd test is included in this charge. To pre-register please click here to visit COVID.IS.
