We don't want to see your vacation time spent at an airport in a foreign country resolving some travel documentation mishaps. So please, take a moment and review these customs and immigration related issues.
Requirements for US and Canadian citizens traveling to a European country in the Schengen zone - Tourist or Business Travel:
The Schengen co-operation currently has 26 members. All EU states are members, except the UK, Ireland, Romania, Croatia and Bulgaria. EEA members Iceland, Switzerland and Norway are also members of Schengen.
Requirements for US and Canadian citizens traveling to a European country not part of the Schengen treaty - Tourist or Business Travel:
Those seeking work or planning to study in Europe should contact their nearest embassy or consulate.
From February 1, 2018, if you hold a passport issued by a non-EEA/EFTA country, your passport should be valid for at least three months beyond your planned date of departure from the Schengen area.
Requirements for non-immigrants traveling to the USA - Tourist or Business Travel:
The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) enables citizens of certain countries to travel to the United States for tourism or business for 90 days or less without obtaining a visa.
Visa Waiver Program travelers are required to apply for and receive an approved travel authorization via the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA), operated by Homeland Securty.
The Global Entry Program is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection program which permits you expedited entry into the US through Global Entry kiosks in selected airports in the United States. Icelandair does not collect Global Entry information.
TSA Precheck is now available with Icelandair.
Please contact our Service Center to be able to add your KTN or TSA number to your booking.

Citizens of certain countries and territories need a visa to visit or transit Canada. Others will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), which can be applied for online.
