Current Restrictions for Travel To/From/Within Iceland

Martin Sammtleben, 22. February 2022

All travellers must pre-register before arriving in Iceland and confirm their departure day, if available. Further requirements and procedures depend on whether you’ve been vaccinated (or have had COVID-19) and what country you’re travelling from.

Rules on the Border

Please see A quick guide to COVID-19 border measures This quick guide will help you find out what general rules apply when entering Iceland, such as whether you need a COVID-19 test prior to boarding or whether you need to get tested in Iceland and quarantine.

Returning from Iceland

You might need a negative COVID-19 test at check-in. Some countries will accept the much quicker rapid antigen tests, others might only accept PCR tests. These rules can change very quickly. Therefore we recommend you check the entry requirements for your country first.

COVID tests are available in various locations around the country including the airport. You should receive the results of the rapid antigen test after around 15 mins. The turn-around time for PCR tests is usually 5–8 hours but it can take up to 24 hours to get the result.

We will advise you during our trip which test location and date/time is suitable.
