Anyone vaccinated against the coronavirus is allowed to enter Iceland. The new rules came into effect on March 18. This policy, which has been used since January 20 for travelers from the Schengen area, now applies to everyone, regardless of the country of arrival. Icelandic customs authorities will accept a certificate of vaccination against COVID-19 or a yellow card from the World Health Organization.
Anyone who has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will be allowed to travel to Iceland without complying with border measures such as testing and quarantine, - the Icelandic Ministry of Health stated.
Alternatively, all tourists will be able to take a coronavirus antibody test or PCR test. This decision makes Iceland one of the first European countries to open its borders for tourists outside the Schengen area, which covers 26 countries - most of the 27 EU members, as well as Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein.
