ICELAND REOPENING BORDERS ON JUNE 15 - UPDATE

09.06.2020

Icelandic authorities have released the latest update regarding the reopening of the Icelandic borders to international travellers.

Iceland will open again on June 15, 2020 and all incoming travellers will have 2 options upon arrival:

  • get tested for COVID-19 at the airport
  • go into quarantine for 2 weeks straight away
    The initial possibility of presenting a clean bill of health from the country of provenance has been revoked.

The test will be free of charge for the first 2 weeks, until July 1st, but it will then cost 15.000 ISK per person.

Exceptions:

  • Children born in or after 2005
  • People who have not been in a high-risk zone 14 days before travelling – the only regions that are not classed as high-risk are currently Greenland and the Faroe Islands (this may be reviewed on June 15th)
  • Travellers who have previously tested positive for COVID-19 in Iceland
  • Flight and freight ship crew

This is just the gist, but you can find detailed information on this link. It is also worth mentioning that the European Commission has decided to keep the outisde borders of the Schengen area closed until July 1st. Only travellers coming from countries that are part of the Schengen area will be allowed ot travel to Iceland until then.

We hope to see you soon!
