Areas with risk of infection

Iceland's borders have remained open to other EU and Schengen states throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, under the condition that passengers quarantine for 14 days upon arrival. Iceland will continue to implement the travel restrictions imposed for the Schengen Area. From 15 June, passengers can opt for a COVID-19 test upon arrival, as an alternative to quarantine.

Exemptions from both testing and quarantine:

Children born in 2005 or later
Crews of airlines and freight ships who observe specific precautions while travelling for work

Modification of quarantine procedures for certain tasks or projects can be approved by the chief epidemiologist upon application.

Defined areas with high risk of infection

Faroe Islands and Greenland are no longer (from 14 May 2020) considered high risk areas.
