There are no longer any COVID-related border restrictions for travel to Iceland.
Here’s a handy checklist covering the important things you need to know before you take off:
Please note: There is no longer a requirement for passengers to present a negative COVID-19 test when traveling to the United States.
Some countries require passengers to present negative COVID-19 test results before their journey. The test results must be recent, taken within the last 72 or 24 hours, depending on the rules of each country. Authorities in some countries, including the US, recommend testing before travel, even if such a test is no longer mandatory.
If a COVID-19 test is mandatory for travel, it is important to note what sort of test result is accepted by the authorities. For some destinations, only a PCR test result is valid.
Note that the following processes apply to Iceland residents as well as to visitors to Iceland who require test results for travel purposes.
If you need a PCR test for your travels, plan your appointment accordingly so you receive the test certificate in time for your trip.
To get tested in Reykjavík or Akureyri, register online at travel.covid.is. Once ready, the certificate will be sent to your email address.
It is important to check whether authorities at your destination will accept an electronic certificate or require a printed one. SMS results are not accepted. Contact the nearest health clinic in Iceland to get a printed certificate for an extra fee. (Note: if you need testing on a weekend, please contact the clinic before the weekend.)
To get tested outside of Reykjavík or Akureyri, contact the nearest testing center to determine if departure testing is offered.
The test: You will be assigned a barcode for your test and a time to attend. Make sure to check the address and opening hours of the testing centers.

If your destination accepts results from a COVID-19 rapid antigen test, you can get it done in Akureyri and Reykjavík. A sample is taken on location, and you receive a certificate in about 15-45 minutes. Details are online at covid.is.
