Iceland Lifts All COVID-19 Travel Restrictions

Iceland Lifts All COVID-19 Travel Restrictions

According to a government news release, Iceland is set to lift all remaining COVID-19 restrictions from 25 February, including pandemic-related border policies. 

From today, 25 February, international travellers will be able to visit Iceland without needing to fulfil vaccination, testing or quarantine requirements.

Iceland joins a growing number of European countries that have recently lifted or eased restrictions both domestically and at the border. 

Furthermore, starting March 1, all COVID-19 border restrictions will be lifted. The rule change means travellers no longer have to present a pre-departure COVID-19 test, show their vaccination status, or quarantine upon arrival. 

Unvaccinated travellers are also permitted to visit for the first time since October 2021.

Those who do plan a trip to Iceland can take advantage of the upcoming long summer days as the country gets 24 hours of daylight in June.

Covid Restriction Within Iceland

The lifted restrictions will apply within the country.

Domestic public protection protocols will also be eliminated, including limits previously placed on social gatherings and school operations, as well as reduced opening hours and capacity restrictions for bars and restaurants that serve alcohol. Gone, too, will be the quarantine requirement for people who test positive for COVID-19.

“We can truly rejoice at this turning-point, but nonetheless I encourage people to be careful, practice personal infection prevention measures and not to interact with others if they notice symptoms.”

Iceland Minister of Health, Willum þór þórsson.
