If you have symptoms or suspect you have an infection, you should be tested even if you have been vaccinated.
Stay at home and register immediately for testing on My Page at Heilsuvera. If you do not have an electronic ID, you can contact, by telephone, your local healthcare centre, Læknavaktin 1700 (the on-call medical hotline) or the Heilsuvera online chat. It is important to follow the isolation instructions until a negative test result is obtained. You should not, under any circumstances, visit your healthcare centre, the LSH Emergency Unit or Læknavaktin if you have symptoms, without calling first and receiving advice.
Symptom testing is always free of charge, for tourists as well.
Do not make an appointment if you are registered in quarantine or special precaution; you will automatically be sent a testing invitation, but the quarantine cannot be shortened until the testing on the 7th day from exposure.
If someone in your home has been quarantined, you are free as soon as the person receives a negative result from their testing.
Children in quarantine are sent an invitation for testing. If you are in quarantine with a child, you do not need to go for testing either, unless you choose to or you have symptoms.
Information on testing for asymptomatic individuals on their way abroad can be found here.
People who travel from abroad and have connections with Iceland must register before arriving in Iceland and receive a message with a bar code to use for testing upon arrival.
