Checklist before you fly

We recommend confirming the latest entry requirements for your destination before your trip. Here are some topics to consider and research.

COVID-19 test results / vaccination certificate

  • Some countries require passengers to present negative COVID-19 test results before their journey, or provide documentation of having been vaccinated or for having recovered from COVID-19. This requirement also often applies to transfer passengers. 
  • Test results must be recent – depending on each country's rules, not older than 24 or 72 hours. In some cases, only printed documentation is valid. 
  • Icelandair is required to deny boarding to passengers who do not bring relevant documents with them for their flight. 

Legitimate purpose and entry forms

  • Some countries may require a legitimate purpose for the travel, such as residency, employment, or family relations. 
  • Some countries require passengers to fill out a specific form before departure. 


  • Quarantine rules are often changing, so it’s important to understand the requirements in your destination before you arrive. 

Transfer flights

  • If you are taking more than one flight to reach your destination, you will need to check requirements for both your transfer point and your final destination.

Returning home

  • For your homecoming, we recommend looking into the up-to-date rules that apply to your trip. You may need to provide a negative COVID-19 test (regardless of vaccination status) prior to your flight or have to quarantine after returning home.
