Test or 2-week quarantine: Iceland plans to ease restrictions on international visitors’ arrivals

Iceland expects to start easing restrictions for visitors arriving from overseas no later than June 15, the government said on Tuesday.

Under a plan still being developed by the authorities, travelers would be given a choice between a test for Covid-19 upon arrival in Iceland or a two-week quarantine, Reuters reported.

“Iceland’s strategy of large-scale testing, tracing and isolating have proven effective so far,” Tourism Minister Thordis Kolbrun Reykfjord Gylfadottir said in a statement.

Iceland has reported three new Covid-19 infections in May.
