In a boost for Icelandic health tourism, there is now no need to quarantine. Government officials have cancelled mandatory coronavirus testing and quarantine for foreign tourists. The new rules came into force on December 10.
Tourism was allowed, but the regulations required to be able to visit Iceland, including quarantining for two weeks and taking a COVID-19 test twice, upon arrival and after a six-day stay, effectively stopped tourism and health tourism.
When entering the country, foreign visitors now have to present a negative test result for COVID-19, taken 14 days prior to the visit, or an antibody test result.
Most tourists are from Europe and Russia.
