Travelling to Iceland

Until 18 August 2020 (23:59), all passengers arriving in Iceland (except children born 2005 and later) from high-risk areas who intend to stay in Iceland for 10 days or more have to undergo two PCR-tests. The 1st is at the border on arrival and the 2nd by the primary health care service 4-6 days later. In between the two tests special precautions need to be taken. The 2nd test is free of charge and testing is available at health care services all over the country (see locations below under the title The second test).

People with Icelandic citizenship, residency in Iceland and / or have a robust contact network are obliged to undergo two PCR-tests regardless of the length of stay in Iceland.

Children born in 2005 or later are exempt from both testing and quarantine as well as passengers arriving outside defined areas with high risk of infection (Greenland, Faroe Islands, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Germany) given that they have stayed there 14 days or longer. Icelanders returning home from these countries will also be exempt from mandatory precautionary measures but they are encouraged to be cautious for fourteen days after returning home, maintain individual hygiene measures and avoid contact with vulnerable individuals during that time.

 

As of 19 August 2020 (00.00) all arriving passengers can choose between a 14-day quarantine or a double testing procedure along with a quarantine for 5-6 days. Instructions for quarantine for visitors in Iceland.

Instructions for persons under home-based quarantine

The double border-screening procedure requires all passengers arriving in Iceland to undergo two PCR-tests: one upon arrival and another 5-6 days later to minimize the risk of a false negative causing infection to spread in the community. During this period, all arriving passengers must stay in quarantine in case of a possible infection. Those who test negative in the second PCR-test are no longer required to take special precautions. Those who test positive must self-isolate. Alternatively, arriving passengers can choose to stay in 14-day quarantine without undergoing any tests. Children born in 2005 and later are exempt from the double border-screening procedure.

Safety on our buses

Our company makes sure the passengers’ safety is ensured on board of our buses. We sanitize the vehicles after each tour and provide hand sanitizers on board. Travel companions can sit on the buses together and we try to ensure the distance between separate travel groups as much as possible. Outside of buses, travellers are asked to keep 2-meters distance between other travellers (except their own travel companions).
