Recommendations for those who are travelling abroad COVID-19

[Icelandic - Polish - Spanish - Lithuanian]


The COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing. Those who travel should exercise caution and follow advice on hygiene and disease prevention: keep distance from unrelated individuals, avoid crowds but otherwise use facemasks, sanitize hands; see also here below.

Iceland partakes in the regulations of the EU/Schengen area. See here.

Travellers should familiarize themselves with the rules of the country they are travelling to, both at the border and within the country.

If symptoms of COVID-19 develop while travelling or returning home, such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, cold symptoms, sore throat, head aches, vomiting or diarrhea, undergo a COVID-test as soon as possible, either a rapid antigen test or PCR. If the disease is diagnosed (the test is positive), you need to follow the rules of the country you are in.

General recommendations for travellers to:

  • Follow the rules that apply in the country you are in.
  • Avoid close contact with individuals with a cold/cough or other illness.
  • Keep at least 1 meter distance from unrelated individuals if possible.
  • Use face masks where appropriate.
  • Clean hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer. Do not touch your mouth, nose or eyes with unwashed hands.
  • Use tissue paper to cover your nose or mouth if sneezing or coughing and clean hands afterwards. Dispose of paper after use. Otherwise sneeze and cough in you elbow.
  • Undergo a COVID-19 test if you have symptoms and self-isolate if disease is diagnosed (test is positive).
