Information related to COVID-19 measures at Keflavik Airport

Keflavik Airport, like all airports around the world, has been affected by the outbreak of Covid-19. We have worked closely with the Directorate of Health in Iceland, the Civil Protection Department and the Chief Epidemiologist to respond to the spread of Covid-19.


The Government of Iceland has started easing restrictions on international arrivals to Iceland from June 15th 2020. Travelers will be given the choice of a test for the virus on arrival to all international airports in Iceland, or a two-week quarantine. In addition Icelandic citizens and residents of Iceland, who choose to be tested on the border, will from July 13th 2020 have to take special precaution during the first five days after arrival in Iceland or until they can be tested for the second time. See more information on special precaution and second testing.

As of July 16th 2020 Denmark, Finland, Germany and Norway, in addition to the Faroe Islands and Greenland, are no longer considered high risk areas in relation to Covid-19. Travelers coming from these countries are exempt from both quarantine and Covid-19 testing upon entering Iceland. More information here.
