Iceland Opens Borders for All Vaccinated Visitors

Iceland is ready to welcome visitors once again. The island nation has opened its borders to all visitors who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 without mandatory testing or quarantine requirements.

The North Atlantic country becomes one of the first to open its borders since the beginning of the pandemic. Iceland is looking to boost its tourism economy, which saw a 75% drop last year.

“The world has been through a lot in the past twelve months, and we are all hoping for a slow and safe return to normalcy,” Prime Minister Katrin Jakobsdottir said in a statement as reported by Reuters. “This also includes the resumption of the opportunity to travel, which is valuable to culture, trade and enterprise.”

Until now, Iceland had only allowed vaccinated visitors from European Union countries to enter without restrictions. But, since March 18, this exemption will apply to citizens outside the Schengen area, including United States.

Earlier this month, Iceland started issuing COVID-19 digital certificates to all EU and Schengen travelers who have been vaccinated against the Coronavirus disease, becoming the first European country to put the plan into practice.

  1. I will not travel internationally until my CDC vaccine card allows me to not only enter a country without a Covid test but also return to the US. Mandatory Covid tests for vaccinated people is a waste of time, money and resources.

  2. Children Born in 2005 and Later
    If the children are traveling with a parent/guardian, they are taken into quarantine with the parent/guardian but are not required to submit to sampling.
    If a child travels without parents/guardians, the child must undergo a 5-day quarantine and submit to a second sampling. If the result is negative, the quarantine is concluded.
    If a child travels with a parent/guardian who has a certificate of exemption at the border, then the child must undergo a 5-day quarantine and submit to a second sampling.
