ICELAND IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS
Icelandic authorities have introduced measures to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on film production in Iceland. These range from available exemptions from temporary travel restrictions to modified quarantine procedures ensuring that film crews from abroad can start work from day one in Iceland.
TRAVEL TO AND WITHIN ICELAND
As of March 18 2021, all those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will be allowed to travel to Iceland without being subject to border measures, such as testing and quarantine. This includes citizens outside the
Schengens area, such as the UK and the USA.
Otherwise the same rules apply, where arriving passengers in Iceland must present a negative PCR taken within 72 hours of their departure to Iceland. In addition, arrivals are required to quarantine for 5-6 days and then take another PCR test. The quarantine is lifted when a negative result (virus not detected) is obtained from the second test.
Those who have confirmed with PCR-testing or antibody testing from an EU/EFTA state that they have previously had a COVID-19 infection are exempt from quarantine. All those who present a valid international vaccination certificate for full vaccination with an approved vaccine against COVID-19 are exempt.
