Iceland to reopen its borders on June 15

Iceland will open its borders from June 15, with no mandatory 14-day quarantine requirements for passengers arriving at Keflavík International Airport.

Tourists and Icelandic residents entering the country will be screened for Covid-19 instead, as well as being asked to download the COVID-19 tracing app “Rakning C-19”.

“When travelers return to Iceland we want to have all mechanisms in place to safeguard them and the progress made in controlling the pandemic,” said Thordis Kolbrun Reykfjord Gylfadottir, Minister of Tourism, Industry, and Innovation.

“Iceland’s strategy of large-scale testing, tracing and isolating have proven effective so far. We want to build on that experience of creating a safe place for those who want a change of scenery after what has been a tough spring for all of us.”
