Iceland has opened up its borders. All travelers who have been vaccinated or those who have had covid-19 and have antibodies can now travel to Iceland without undergoing tests or quarantine.
NEW ENTRY RULES FROM 1 MAY
From 1 May, the following rules apply:
I have been vaccinated against Covid-19
You can travel to Iceland without undergoing tests or quarantine. While waiting for standardization of an international digital vaccination certificate, Iceland accepts the international vaccination card (yellow) as proof.
I have had Covid-19
If you have a valid certificate proving that you have had Covid-19 and have antibodies, you can enter Iceland without undergoing tests or quarantine. The certificate must prove that the person has already contracted Covid-19 and recovered, and be issued within the EEA/EFTA area.
I have not been vaccinated or had Covid-19
From 1 May 2021, countries will be classified into different risk zones. If you come from a country with a low risk of infection (green or orange zone) and can show a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure you will only be tested at the border. If this test is negative, you can enter Iceland without undergoing further tests or quarantine.
However, if you come from a country where the spread of infection is considered high (red zone), you must undergo double tests with a five-day quarantine in between. These tests are free.
ICELAND HAS THE LOWEST INFECTION SPREAD IN EUROPE
Iceland currently has the lowest spread of infection in Europe, and is now marked as a so-called green zone by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control. Recently, few new cases have been registered and vaccination has begun. Restrictions are eased and life is now beginning to return to a more normal state.
Iceland is a country that has been mentioned as a role model in the international press for its handling of reducing the spread of the coronavirus.
