Iceland Reopens to All Vaccinated Travelers

Iceland Reopens to All Vaccinated Travelers


Update: Iceland's reopening to vaccinated travelers has been postponed to April 6, 2021

Iceland is Reopening to All Vaccinated Travelers as of March 18, 2021: good news for Americans and other non-Schengen residents who previously were barred from visiting, even if they were vaccinated. Iceland will also allow in non-EU travelers with documented laboratory results that show a prior COVID-19 infection; see the certificate rules.

Fully vaccinated travelers will be exempt from COVID-19 testing and quarantine, per the Icelandic government.

Americans and other travelers who have been vaccinated must meet the following requirements:

  • The COVID-19 vaccine must be one authorized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or WHO including:
  • Pfizer-BioNTech
  • Moderna
  • AstraZeneca
  • Janssen
  • The certificate may be in paper or electronic format
  • Be in the Icelandic, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, English or French. A document in another language can be valid if the original document accompanied by a certified stamped translation in one of the languages required.
  • First name and last name (as in travel documents).
  • Date of birth.
  • Name of disease vaccinated against (COVID-19)
  • Where and when vaccination(s) was/were performed (date(s)).
  • Vaccination must be complete; see below the required doses for full vaccination for each vaccine.
  • Issuer of the certificate (supervising clinician/administering centre), with signature and stamp if the International Certificate of Vaccination.
  • Vaccine administered.
  • Manufacturer and batch/lot no. of vaccine.


Iceland, as with other Nordic countries, is high on natural beauty and low on luxury travel, although we do assist TravelSort clients with bespoke Icelandic itineraries.

The Reykjavik EDITION will be opening in summer 2021, and is expected to offer Marriott STARS benefits to TravelSort clients.
