On February 25, 2022, Iceland’s government lifted all COVID-19 prevention measures at the border, regardless of vaccination status. Travellers are no longer required to register prior to boarding, get tested prior to or after arrival, or quarantine.

Individual infection prevention encouraged
While the government no longer requires people to keep a social distance, wear masks or get tested, people are still encouraged to practice personal infection prevention measures, such as washing their hands regularly, keeping a distance from unrelated parties and wearing masks in crowded places.
If Illness Arises
Those travelling from abroad who have cold-like symptoms should contact the health line +354 544 4113 and must do so before going to hospitals or clinics.
Free rapid tests are available at the country’s healthcare clinics but people are no longer required to confirm the results of a positive rapid test with a PCR test.
While isolation is no longer required, people who test positive for COVID-19 and present symptoms are still encouraged to keep to themselves for at least five days after the diagnosis. Asymptomatic people are asked to take special precautions such as wearing masks at all times and keeping a safe distance from others.
Travellers are encouraged to monitor news and Iceland’s official COVID-19 website prior to and during their trip.
