Vaccination and antibodies

People that have been infected with COVID-19 or have been vaccinated.

The rules here below apply to people that have been vaccinated or have a certificate of previous infection of COVID-19, even if they are travelling from high-risk countries.

FROM 1 JULY - certificate is valid when 14 days have passed from the second dose (or 14 days from Janssen/Johnson & Johnson dose). If a certificate is not valid the individual needs to undergo 2 tests and quarantine for 5 days in between.

All travellers must pre-register before arriving in Iceland and confirm their departure day, if available.
Present an approved vaccination certificate or a certificate of previous infection at the border.
Do not have to present a negative PCR test.
Everybody must undergo testing on arrival to Iceland, even children.
It is important to follow the guidelines for quarantining at home until a negative result is obtained from the border testing. If you don´t get a message within 24 hours the result is negative. Here is a list of accommodations that accommodate guests in quarantine
It is recommended that travellers download the Rakning C-19 app. It is used, amongst other things, to communicate negative testing results and helps to trace infections if necessary.
Testing and quarantine of children: Children born in 2005 or later are tested at the border. They are exempt from the obligation to present a negative PCR certificate upon arrival. If a child travels with a person who is required to be quarantined, the child stays with them and is released from quarantine if the second test from the companion is negative. If the companion is exempt from double screening and quarantine, so is the child. A child travelling alone must be quarantined until a negative result is obtained from border testing.

If the slightest suspicion arises that an individual has presented a forged certificate, he/she will be obliged to be tested twice with quarantine in between.
