Thursday the 18th. In March, Iceland will reopen its borders to visitors who have received the KOVID-19 vaccine.
Vaccinated visitors – including U.S. citizens – are not required to undergo PCR testing or quarantine.
To enter the country, travelers must provide proof of complete vaccination with a vaccine certified by a European medical agency, such as. B. Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccines and Moderna, as well as meeting the requirements of the chief epidemiologist and Icelandic regulations, Visit Iceland said.
Travelers must also provide documentation of previous infections that meets the requirements of the senior epidemiologist.
We are pleased to safely open our borders to fully vaccinated U.S. citizens and those who are no longer susceptible to the virus, said Sigridur Gudmundsdottir, Tourism Manager at Visit Iceland. Tourism is a very valuable sector for Iceland as it contributes to our economy and culture. With approved vaccines, targeted measures by Icelandic authorities, experts, scientists, and the public to continually reduce the number of infections, and a targeted recovery plan to keep Icelanders and tourists healthy, we can now safely extend the exemption to U.S. travelers.
Previously, EU and EEA nationals were only allowed to enter Iceland if they could prove that they had undergone a negative PCR test before leaving the country, followed by a negative test at the border. These visitors also had to be quarantined for five days and undergo a third PCR test.
Our experience and the data collected so far show that the risk of infection is very low in people who have acquired immunity to the disease, either through vaccination or previous infection, said Thorolfur Gudnason, senior epidemiologist from Iceland. If people are protected from the same disease by the same vaccines produced by the same companies, there is no medical reason to discriminate against them based on where the vaccine is administered. Our experience shows that the risk of contamination by vaccinated persons is very low or negligible.
